Evelyn Joshua, wife of Temitope Balogun Joshua, popularly known as T.B. Joshua, has disclosed the incident leading up to his death.
Speaking with some selected journalists on Sunday, June 6, she said that her husband, the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), “ended his race prayerfully”.
She revealed the televangelist spent about three hours in prayers before the last service on the mountain and appeared to be very healthy. She said he never showed any sign of illness or worry and that his main concern was about the prayer line they offered to Indians against the COVID-19 pandemic.
She said: “Afterward, he came up to shower and I left him to have some time to prepare for service as worship had started.
“Few minutes later, he stepped out for ministration. While ministering, he spoke about a time to come and time to leave. His statements were spiritual and suddenly, he left the stage and went to his inner chambers. “I waited a few minutes and thereafter decided to check on him. I met him sitting on the chair like someone reflecting but unconscious. I quickly beckoned on his disciples who came and tried to revive him to no avail.”Of a truth, he went home to be with the Lord and left us with a message, watch and pray.”
On Sunday, June 6, Evelyn mourned her husband on Twitter, writing; “Losing a loved one is never easy; whether sudden or foreseen. It is always heart-breaking. Grief can wreak havoc on our overall well-being. That’s why it’s important to stay rooted to the Almighty. Only He can lessen our heartache and comfort us in these times. Seek refuge in him.”
