The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye and his wife, Folu on Thursday said their faith in Christ remains intact, despite the sudden death of their third son, Dare Adeboye who died on Wednesday at the age of 42.
The family also debunked insinuations that the death of the younger Adeboye was Covid-19 related and therefore pleaded for some privacy as the family released the Order of Service for his burial rites.
According to the statement released by the family, the burial rites will commence with a special service at City of David Youth Church, Eket, Akwa Ibom State where he officiated before his death. This will be followed by a farewell service on Tuesday at the Redemption Camp, Ogun State.
Full texts of the statement reads:
It is with a deep and heartfelt sense of loss that we announce the departure of our beloved son, brother, husband and father, Oluwadamilare Temitayo Adeboye who went to be with the Lord on the 4th of May, 2021. Peaceful is the path of the righteous as we are grateful even at this time to not have lost him to Covid.
“His life was well lived as he served the Lord without reserve, giving effortlessly and leading fearlessly. He was crowned by the Lord with the blessings of 3 seeds and a beautiful wife.
“Though shaken, our anchor remains Jesus Christ, in whom we have the assurance that we will one day meet in a place where there is no pain.
“At this time, the family will appreciate some privacy as well as your prayers. We pray the Lord keep you as you honour this humble request.
Oluwadamilare Temitayo Adeboye, June 9th 1978 – May 4th 2021 remain forever in our heart”.
