HOW DISTRICT HEAD GAVE BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO A LANTERN – Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche

HOW DISTRICT HEAD GAVE BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO A LANTERN – Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche

Papa Oyedepo said, when he went to do teaching practice in a village, I think it was in the year of 1973 or so, he came and realized that there was no church in that village at all and he said “what? There are churches everywhere and in this village, there is no church and I am here, in my lifetime? I am going to build a church before I go.” He was doing teaching practice and in those days, teachers were as respected as doctors are respected – village teachers. So, he went from house to house, he said, “tell your father, I am going to visit your house today.”
Teacher is coming to our house? Clean the house, clean everything!
Then he comes to the house, most of them other religion, many of them pagans.
He said, “I came to bless all of you with the blessing of the Lord.”
They said, amen!
He said, so pray this prayer with me, the prayer of the blessing. Say; “Lord, I receive your blessing, but I know I am a sinner…” He said, he both preached and led them to Christ inside the prayer.

The prayer he was leading them was the preaching and the altar call inside. By the time his days were over in that village, a church was planted and the District Head brought a lantern and told him, “anywhere church comes, civilization has come. We didn’t have church before, you brought us church. Now, we give you the gift of this lantern, it is light you brought to this village; may you take this same light to the whole world.
Is he going to the whole world or not?
