    Your wife and mother of your children was a Great Blessing to my life in the moments I shared
    my visitation at the church. I will keep you and your children ever before the Lord in
    prayers. Your wife has truly been a Blessing to the Body of Christ. In all things May God be Glorified through Jesus Christ Our Lord

    Indeed we have lost a dear sister and mother whose legacy will forever be remembered. Everything you embedded in your children are so supernatural. To God be the glory. So long sister. We shall see
    you in the morning by and by. Shalom!

    I am deeply shocked and grieved by Adesuwa’s demise. Having known her for over 30 years when we became friends and course mates at the faculty of law at the then Bendel state university, Ekpoma in 1982. We remained friends and close confidants ever since. I recall our last meeting when she was in Nigeria and how she spoke about the ministry she ran with her husband. She was a woman of grace and great conviction in the power of God. May she rest peacefully and rise with the saints.
