Pastor Adeboye is 79: Another good reason why I am writing about this
Perhaps, one of the most compelling reasons why I am writing about this today is because, in the year 2001, I began a new life when I gave my life to Jesus Christ under the ministration of this great man of God at the annual Holy Ghost services.
I can still remember the simple prayers he said over me and others who came out to surrender our lives to Jesus Christ on that memorable day. I strongly believe the prayers are still working for me, my life, and my ministry today.
My foundational training
I am also writing about Pastor Adeboye is 79 because immediately after I gave my life to Jesus Christ, I began to get really serious about going to church and I joined the convert teaching class in my local parish. I moved through those exciting levels of training at the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Those trainings were so good that they helped to steady me in the body of Christ.
