Pastor Enoch Adeboye Pastor Enoch Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has disclosed that some people made fun of him when his biological son, Dare, passed away in 2021.

He revealed this on Tuesday, August 9, during the 70th Annual Convention of the church along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Adeboye spoke on the second day of the programme on the topic, ‘Born Free’, and he stated that God carries His children who make themselves carry-able.

He added that God carried him during the saddest period of his life in May 2021 after he lost his 42-year-old son.

“Some 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.

“All she said was: ‘Daddy, let God carry you’. And that put an end to any problem; it ended my sorrows. It renewed my faith.”
