The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Thursday evening, made his first public appearance after the death of his 42-year-old son, Pastor Dare Adeboye.
The general overseer featured on Thursday at the Holy Communion Service of the May Edition of the church’s Holy Ghost Service.
The PUNCH had earlier reported that the younger Adeboye died in his sleep on Wednesday in Eket, Akwa Ibom State, where he was based with his family.
His death shocked the whole world as well-meaning persons including presidents, governors, and notable personalities condole the 79-year-old general overseer and his wife over the death of their son.
Preaching on Thursday night, the older Adeboye stressed on the importance of the bread and wine of the Holy Communion.
The cleric spoke from the studio of the church’s station, DOVE Media, while members of his church congregated in the auditorium along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and in other places across the world watched him.
Adeboye, in his sermon, said, “The bread multiplied in the hands of the disciples, as you receive the bread, it will multiply in your hands.”
Adeboye, who kept mute on the passing of his son, was visibly heartbroken and troubled.
After the sermon, the officiating minister in the auditorium said, “Our Daddy has prayed for us. He was supposed to be here physically but due to circumstances beyond his control, he couldn’t make it.”
