Since then, she has been traveling to nations teaching and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, declaring the message of restoration and lighting fires of revival. The main focus of this ministry is to call nations to pray for and enter into their divine prophetic destiny.
Apostle Gobodo’s passion is to raise and equip leaders in their area of their calling and gifting through discipleship and to release them to function in the different domains. She has a particular grace for raising Kingdom marketplace disciples to bring Kingdom principles, dominate their territories and ensure the rule of the Lord Jesus Christ over all the seven mountains (sectors of society) and nations.
