The 60th birthday anniversary of Pastor Faith Abiola Oyedepo wife of Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide a.k.a. Winners’ Chapel, was grand.
With a thanksgiving service which took place on Sunday February 4, 2017 to a grand reception on Monday February 5, it was indeed time for the Oyedepos to thank God for his faithfulness.
The matriarch of the Oyedepo dynasty who was attacked by a strange illness in 2004 would not cease to thank God. At the service before the grand reception on Monday, she testified of God’s faithfulness:
She said, “Today, I have returned like that one leper in the bible to give glory to God who is too faithful to fail for sparing my life, giving another chance to live, delivering me from the pangs of death, taking me from the miry clay and placing my feet on the rock to stay. Taking me from the wheelchair and putting me on my feet today. With joy, gladness and gratitude, I have returned to say thank you Jesus.
I cannot thank Him enough.
Born into the family of 8 children, I am the number 6. I gave my life to Jesus by divine placement as a teenager. God baptized me in the Holy Ghost in 1976.
If you have Jesus Christ in your life, no matter the attempts of the devil, you will end up triumphing. If you have any challenge, remember me standing here today, once on the wheelchair. God who did mine, will do yours too. Don’t ever give up on God.
My testimony is encapsulated in 1cor 15:10. Its by God’s grace.”
Married to Bishop Oyedepo for over 35 years, Faith, who is now a grandmother, recalled the roles played by the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye and his wife, Folu. The RCCG G.O and wife were also present at the service.
Thanking them for standing with her during her ordeal, Faith Oyedepo said, “I am so grateful and I cannot but appreciate the presence of my Daddy and Mummy G.O. My own Daddy and my own Mummy. During the attack, you were there, strong , hale and hearty. See what effect your prayers have done today. 60 years to the shame of the devil. Six decades! The Lord will keep you for us in Jesus name.”
