“He would be missed greatly as we appreciate all he did for the kingdom even as heaven receives him with great joy.
“We pray for the family at this time and always and pray all will be well for them,” Pastor Adeboye who was part of the ‘Farewell Crusade and Passing The Burning Torch Conference’ of celebrated global Evangelist, Rev. Reinhard Bonnke in 2017, said.
