Meet Prophetess Nonnie Robertson, the one who caught the vision for Sisterhood Africa.



Prophetess Nonnie Roberson is the founder of Sisterhood- Africa an All Female Praying Group on Facebook. She is an entrepreneur and business negotiator with a chain of businesses. She has a prison outreach and has a burden for women. She is a well-respected woman of God with the burden of saving souls.
 
How did you acquire the title ‘Prophetess’?
I sit in a Prophetic office. The title follows the office. Though I don't like the title. I believe what is inside should confirm the title or office. I am not title driven because you can have title and no content. Thus the content, what is inside should testify or qualify the office or title


You live in US and have relocated to Nigeria partially how did this happen?
I had a thriving business in the US, I was reached in the US, offered an appointment as a world bank consultant in Nigeria, to come and serve. I answered the call. I was also in active ministry in the US, Nigeria was my place of assignment.

I know you are involved in a lot of outreaches. I am particularly interested in the prison outreach. How did this come about?
I was on a casual visit to the home of my friend Dr. Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu wife of Kebbi State Governor, the governor was also, around, we were gisting casually, I don't know how the conversation switched, the governor opened my eyes to the plight of prisoners who committed petty crimes and were unable to pay their fines. He told me to add my voice to their plight, encouraged me to always remember them and try as much as possible to be releasing these inmates. I took him up on his advice, found out more than he even told me. I found out people can spend up to 5yrs in prison for a N5k fine. I also found out that there are babies in prison. When a woman is incarcerated her babies share their cells with them. Children whose only crime is to be born by incarcerated mother.

What are the challenges you are having in running this outreach?
Funds...we could do more if we have more funds. We can create more awareness if we have more funds.

You really recently started a group SISTERHOOD-AFRICA. what is the reason behind this group?
There was a female group I was added to, there are many positive things about this group, but one thing that grieved me was, you can't call on the name of Jesus, you can't tell someone to pray, you can't counsel and bring correction in love. I prayed about it, the Lord told me to do something about it. Thus Sisterhood Africa was born. A safe heaven where women can talk about anything, ask questions and seek Godly counsel.

Right now you have within 2months about 25000 members. How do you feel and what is your target?
I am amazed at what God is doing in the forum. I wish I can take the credit alone, but it's a collective effort. We have no limits. We want it to be a forum for every woman.

Many women trust you enough to tell you their stories, what do you think are the greatest challenge/s facing women?
Yes, many women trust me with their issues, Trust isn't built over night. I have done active ministry for over 2 decades, Pastored a vibrant church here in Abuja for 10yrs. Most people know that I keep it real.

I am not judgemental, and people's secrets are safe with me.
I don't look down on people. The core of my ministry is reconciliation. Turning the hearts of the children back to their father and the heart of the Father to His children. I genuinely care. I try as hard as possible to leave anyone our path crosses better than when we first met.
The most problems women have are family induced. It is either they want to get married or are in a hell of a marriage.

Domestic violence seems to be on the increase. Why is this so?
The women don't know any better, when a woman is in an abusive relationship, she is encouraged to stay and pray. She is told that it is her fault. There is no support system or safe transitional home for victims of domestic violence. Many times these women have no means of sustaining themselves. Financial burdens are also contributing factors, women are becoming bread winners in their homes, with roles reversal, some of the men’s egos are crushed, some women want to rub it in on their mates, while the men feel the only way to subdue the woman is by beating her.

You are one of the few women allowed to 'fly' by their husbands. Who is Nonnie and what does she want?
Nonnie is a bold fierce Daughter of the most high. She doesn't believe in limitations.

I pray that women will find their place, purpose in God. I wish women can become God centered instead of man centered. A purpose driven woman is fulfilled. With fulfillment comes contentment. When you are fulfilled, living spring water flows out from you. When people drink it, they are refreshed.

Last word for all the women reading you right now.
There is a reason why God created you. Find it.
