‘Why we celebrated TB Joshua’s posthumous birthday with elderly’
Partners of Emmanueltv have explained why they decided to travel to the hinterlands of Taraba State for the posthumous birthday of the founder, Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) and Emmanueltv, Temitope Balogun Joshua.
The Taraba Coordinator, Alexander Emmanuel, said they were following the footsteps of the late Joshua, who was passionate about the elderly in society.
His words: “We are only following the footsteps of our father in the Lord, Senior Prophet TB Joshua, who was always passionate about the elderly ones in the society.”
Senior citizens in every nook and cranny of Kpantisawa, the administrative headquarters of Yorro Local Council of Taraba, were excited when the partners from Jalingo reached out to them with food items to mark the 59th posthumous birthday of Joshua, on Sunday.
Led by Emmanuel, the partners moved from house to house celebrating with the people, after paying homage to the traditional ruler of the community.
Like Oliver Twist, the elderly passionately beckoned the partners not to be tired of coming back to them.
