Pastor Adeboye recounts encounter in church with an ex-girlfriend


General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor E. A. Adeboye recently recounted how a former girlfriend of his visited the Church which he pastored for a solution to her child’s problem.

The woman’s visit many years after they parted ways was a happenstance.

The clergyman, who spoke during the church’s just-concluded annual convention with the theme “A New Wave of Glory” said he did “virtually everything” with the lady whose identity he did not reveal.

He said: “I told you that before I gave my life to Jesus Christ, I had many, many girlfriends. But among all of them, there was one that I did everything with, and I won’t tell you the details.

“Then, we separated. She went her way; I went my way. We didn’t see for years, and she got married, and I got married.

“In the meantime, I was born again. When I was working at the University of Ilorin, looking after our little church there, in the meantime, they transferred her husband also to Ilorin.

“She had given birth to a child that was born lame. Someone told her there is a pastor up there; take your child to him. If he prays for the child, the child will walk. So, she came to the mission house.

“She saw some people at the veranda, and said ‘I want to see the pastor’. They said he is inside. And then she came in and saw me. We greeted. Old flames. How are you? Long time, no see. Where have you been?

“And then she said, ‘I want to see the pastor.’ And I said yes, can I help you? She said, ‘I said I want to see the pastor.’ I said I am the pastor. She said, ‘you?’ I said yes. ‘You are the pastor?’ I said yes. She said, “You will pray and God will answer?’”
