A portion of the tribute was dedicated to Adeboye’s life before he went into Christendom. The spiritual father had disclosed how he was ‘rotten’, and how his activities as a photographer and a sportsman afforded him the opportunity to have many girlfriends.
“I had two things going for me that made it extremely easy to have girlfriends. I was a sportsman and I was also a photographer," Adeboye said.
The man of God talked about one particular lady that was very dear to his heart among all the girlfriends he had. However, he said with time, they parted ways; both got married and started having kids.
Adeboye said within that period, he became a born again Christian.
The RCCG pastor narrated how the lady had a child that was born lame and how someone directed her to bring the child to a particular man of God for spiritual healing.
Unknown to her, he was the one she was bringing her child to. He said the day they met, they exchanged pleasantries and caught up on old times. However, she could not hide her surprise when she heard that he was the pastor that would pray for her sick child.
According to the pastor, the child got well after he prayed.
