General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye has urged Nigerians not to cry over the demise of his son, Dare Adeboye.
He rather called for prayers for his wife, Pastor Folu, the widow, his children, his grandchildren and the entire family.
He spoke yesterday through a recorded message at the farewell service for Dare at the Youth Church, Redemption Camp.
The 10-minute and 55-second video was also shared by his son, Leke Adeboye, on YouTube.
At the service were the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, his wife, Dolapo, Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel Udom, former Ondo State Governor Segun Mimiko, President of El-buba Outreach Ministry Prophet Ise El-buba, Presiding Bishop, Living Faith Bishop David Oyedepo and Senior Pastor, Covenant Christian Centre Poju Oyemade and others.
Dare, the third child of the Pastor Adeboye died last Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.
The 42-year-old was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region (Youth) 35 before his death. He was father to three daughters.
In the recorded message, the top cleric thanked Nigerians for the massive show of love.
“I want to thank each and every one of you, for this massive show of love, not just for Dare but for me, my wife, the widow, the children and the siblings
“I am extremely grateful. I am only bringing you this brief message not just to thank you, but to let you know that by the special grace of God, we are loved of God and because we are loved of God, we are more than conquerors.
“I want you to know that God who knows the end from the beginning, knew long before the foundations of the world that what has happened is going to happen
“And because his word is forever settled, he said all things work together for good to them that love God. We may not understand now, but what has happened is going to work out for good as individuals, as families and as a denomination.”
