Wole Balogun, ADO-EKITI
World-renowned cleric and General Overseer of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor Williams Folorunso Kumuyi at the weekend stormed Ekiti State for a day crusade geared towards bringing a refreshing time to God’s people.
Kumuyi who paid a visit first to Governor Ayodele Fayose at his Osuntokun hall residence of the government House, assured that a time of divine refreshment and victory from all challenges facing the state had come.
“We thank God for the progress that has come to the state since you assumed office. And we pray that this would be a time for peace, security,u protection and prosperity for the state. We know that in every government where things are active and dynamic, there would be some challenges here and there. We know that God is control and He would give victory to his people in Jesus name. We have come to the state for the whole people not only for the branch of our church and it is going to be a refreshing time for all who partake.
“The governor himself has been so nice to us. Once the blessings start from the number one citizen in the state, it flows to the rest of the people of the state. And it is a great blessing we have brought to Ado-Ekiti here.
Extolling the cleric’s godly virtues, Fayose, who had to cancel an earlier scheduled trip to receive Kumiyi, said: “We are very happy to have you in the state at this time. We know what does through you and the church. We know that now that you’re here the yoke on our people would be broken and when the state is at peace, the governor too will be at peace.
” We know what you stand for with God. Many times that I stand on God’s words, it is the church that taught me. I gain all that from the undiluted preaching of the word of God from the church.
Permit me to say that Pastor Kumuyi’s coming brings much attraction, the attraction comes because of what God has deposited in him and the church. Even coming to visit us as the leader of the state is a rare privilege. It is a indeed a rare privilege for the state as well. And for any government, either Christian or Moslem, if a Pastor of his stature is coming, if they cannot cancel their appointment, they should send a high-powered delegation to receive him. Pastor Kumuyi carries God’s blessings and he is here to bless the state. I know what his church represents. For him to be here in Ekiti it is a rare privilege for people like me and for the state. So, we are happy that the Pastor is here,” he said.
