General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye on Thursday praised his wife Pastor Foluke for standing by him through the years.
The duo is celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary.
Going down memory lane in his posts across social media, Adeboye said his wife stood by him when they had nothing.
“My darling @pastorfoluadeboye the woman who has suffered with me, she stood by me when we had nothing,” he said.
“I was the poorest and the least known of all the men after her 55yrs ago. But she left all those who were famous, well to do and she picked me. Thank God, God had made us a success and proven all the oppostions back then wrong.”
The 80-year-old added, “Here is to 55 more years of double love, double grace, double peace, double of heaven on earth.”
Adeboye was born into a poor family. He however took education seriously and found his feet through it. He was named general overseer of the church six years after he obtained a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the University of Lagos and just eight years after joining the church.
