T.B JOSHUA ;A centre Pillar*
Paternal family are believed to be a ‘formidable’ side but the place SYNAGOGUE changed my view/ knowledge about that.
I would have never/really known some of my father’s family if not for the church.
Daddy ,you have really impacted in my life. Growing up in SYNAGOGUE is really a privilege and I can’t trade it for anything.
You were always there through our spiritual battles and challenges; my siblings and I found a father figure in you.
The mere thought of your name or Church keeps me in line when I am going astray.
I remembered in 2003 when I went for the choir audition in the church and I was called to your office,you asked sis Turayo Abiola if I knew how to sing and she sad not really; you said ‘e lo ko’ ( go and teach her).
Whenever I am returning to school, you always pray for me, encourage me and always gave me an ‘envelope’.
After my NYSC in November 2008,you called me to your office and asked me what my next step is, I told you I wanted to get a job so as not to disturb my parents financial wise for my PGD.
You gave me a note to keep going to the Prayer mountain and after 25days of going there to pray and play with the monkeys I got a Federal Government job I never applied for.
In 2014, I was in labour and was transferred from one hospital to the other after a prolonged labour ,you kept on sending words of prayer and encouragement through my dad that all will be well.
I was booked for operation but delivered at the entrance of the operating room .I still saw you last month and you prayed for my family and was even playing with my daughter, never knew it will be our last physical contact.
The memories are much and uncountable. Who are we to question God ?I know you are with the Saints cos you ascended to Glory.
Heaven has really gained an Angel. I am happy I know I am proud to be called you “daughter”. Keep watching over us; Keep watching over the church; Keep interceding for us.
