Evelyn Joshua, wife of late Prophet T. B. Joshua, on Tuesday said at the tribute service that the late cleric was not dead.
Speaking at the Synagogue Church of All Nations, Evelyn promised to “keep the light burning,” adding that she would “forever be proud to be your wife”.
“You are not dead. I know that,” she added, describing Joshua’s passing as “very peaceful”.
Speaking further, the woman who is touted to be the next leader of the church said, “I am sad that I, Evelyn may not be able to see you physically again, your children, spiritual sons and daughters may not see you physically again, but we know that you are not dead. Sleep on my love. Sleep on My God’s general.”
According to her, Joshua always created time for his family despite his busy schedule.
Joshua’s first daughter Serah said in her tribute, “I am so proud of my father. Dad told me that the work of God is so beautiful to do.
“’Indeed he lived a prayerful life, I recall how one day we prayed for 45 minutes and after that my knees were aching. After that he told me that the spirit is willing but the body is weak.
“I will truly miss our conversation. If anyone lived a fulfilling and yet enigmatic life, it was you. My dad had the biggest heart that I know of. What a life you lived- such a legend and exemplary light.”
The other daughters Promise and Heart also spoke glowingly of their father and thanked the audience for celebrating his life.
