The senior Pastor of House on the rock church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin on Friday expressed his condolence to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, his family and members of his church over the death of his son, Pastor Dare Adeboye.
The 42-year-old Dare was the Assistant Pastor in charge of Region 35 (Youth) in Eket, Akwa Ibom State before his death.
Adefarasin in a statement shared on his Instagram page wrote: “Dear Daddy and Mummy GO, and the entire Family,
Ifeanyi and I were shocked and deeply saddened to receive the disheartening news of the sudden passing of your precious son, Dare, and we cannot begin to fathom the sense of loss the whole family must be reeling from.
Nothing in life can prepare us for the sudden transition to glory of a son, especially one so young, so full of life and vigour. He was a beloved son, husband, father, friend, man of faith, brother and so much more.
No words can possibly convey the depths of our feelings for you but please know that our heartfelt condolences go out to you in this time of bereavement.
Though we are grappling with and grieved by his sudden departure, we submit to the will of our Sovereign God. We ask Him to comfort you like only He can, console you in the midst of the tears, and give you succour to ease the pain of his passing.
To his dear wife, Temiloluwa, their beloved children, and the entire family, we pray for God’s peace that passes all understanding to encompass you, His strength to cause you to stand even under the weight of the grief and His grace to cause you to continue to walk in His wisdom, favour and protection.
We take solace and are immensely comforted by the certainty of knowing that Dare, our brother, has reached the fulfilment of our faith and is now at rest with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Daddy and Mummy GO, you and the entire family remain in our earnest prayers as we all find the strength in Him to bear this monumental loss.
Adieu to a great soldier”.
‘Pastor D’ as he is fondly called was said to have died while in his sleep, just as the door to his room was reportedly forced open to access his remains.
