Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, claims that when he lost his biological son last year, some people made fun of him.
He made this statement on Tuesday night while The PUNCH was present to cover the church’s 70th Annual Convention on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The programme with the theme, â€˜Perfect Jubileeâ€™ began on Monday, August 8th and would last through Sunday, August 14th, 2022.
The octogenarian preacher, who spoke on the second day of the programme on the topic, â€˜Born Freeâ€™, said God carries His children who make themselves carry-able.
Adeboye said God carried him when he was in the saddest period of his life in May 2021 after the death of his 42-year-old son, Dare.
â€œSome of you have heard this before: when I was in the saddest period of my life, with so many questions and I know that even in my deep sorrow some people were still laughing at me, I got a text from one of my daughters.
â€œAll she said was: â€˜Daddy, let God carry youâ€™. And that put an end to any problem; it ended my sorrows. It renewed my faith.â€
