One of the Nigerian respectable clerics, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer and senior pastor of Redeem Christian Church of God, has in a video of his Christmas sermon today, Sunday, said that his father was so poor that the day his father bought an umbrella, they were celebrating.
Pastor Adeboye while addressing his congregation on the subject topic”perfect gifts” and how God can and is able to change the life of those that believed him, used himself, and his life stories as examples.
Here is what the cleric said about his background.
“Those of you who knew a little bit about my background, you will know that when they say something is from a rocky start, that means he started in serous poverty. My own rock was rock among rocks. My father was so poor, (that) poor people called him poor. The day he bought an umbrella, we were rejoicing, “
“It rubbed off on me. For the first 18 years of my life, I had no pair of shoes. That is how things were and then I received Jesus Christ. Then things began to change, look at me today.
