How Adeboye’s wife surprised me with call – Bakare
The Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has said he almost collapsed when he had a phone call with Mrs Foluke Adeboye, wife of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye.
According to him, he was in London when he had the call with Mrs Adeboye who wanted to inquire about his health after watching a sermon of his on television.
Bakare shared the story while addressing his followers at the Atlanta 2022: Gathering of Sons and Daughters in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, on Sunday.
The three-day event, organised by the CGCC Diaspora Family Fellowship, was themed, ‘Global Mission and Globalisation: Avenues for expressing the dominion mandate.’
“I remember that I was on a London highway one day when Mrs Adeboye called. She had sent a text and I think she also made phone calls but I didn’t know who (it was),” he said.
The clergyman said the message was signed with the initials, ‘MGO,’ a short form for Mummy GO as she is fondly called by the RCCG congregation.
Bakare added, “So, I placed a phone call and said ‘good afternoon, I got a text from this number.’
“She said, ‘Haa, don’t you know me again?’ I said, ‘Who is speaking?’ and she mentioned her name. My mouth is too small to call her by name.
“I almost collapsed. I said, ‘ma, I didn’t know it was you.’ She said, ‘Well, we were watching television and I saw you using a walking stick; I want to know that you are well.’ I said it was illustrated sermon.
“So, you can see that they care about me and I do care about them.”
