The General Overseer of The Gospel Faith Mission International, Pastor (Dr) Elijah Oludele Abina, has opened up on the death of his first son, the Late Pastor Emmanuel Folorunsho Abina who passed on to glory on the 28th of April 2021 and was buried on 28th May, 2021.
Abina started by appreciating all the members of GOFAMINT worldwide for standing by him during the period. In his words, he said, “words cannot capture the level of my gratitude to you all for all that you did for me during my son’s passing. “ He said further, I really feel your prayers and they worked for me.
On how the death of his son has affected him as a father, he said, “it was very painful for me, but the Lord is seeing me through. In fact, I used to write it that God is good to me. I still write it after my son’s passing, that God is good to me.”
Abina made these statements as part of his opening address to the Council of Ministers’ Meeting held at the International Office, Ogun state on Monday 7th June, 2021.
He also implored all GOFAMINT members to read the book of Ephesians 4. He specifically harped on ‘enduring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace’ in the body of Christ.
Finally, Abina told his audience to be circumspect about their spiritual lives because, Heaven is real.
