The visionary and founder of the House on the Rock Church, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, this morning shared with members of his congregation how he escaped accident yesterday.
The very articulate and dapper man of God, said he was on his way to the Lagos Airport, to catch a flight to Warri, where he was to attend the birthday/40th anniversary of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria President, Pastor Ayo Oristejafor.
According to him, God spoke to him and asked him not to use his Range Rover, which he would usually prefer to drive for long distances.
Unknown to him, the bolts of a tyre on the left side of the utility car, had almost come off. An automobile engineer was called in and he loosened about three bolts with his hands, without the help of a screwdriver.
In his words, he said: “If we had gone with that car, I would have been a statistic by now and the mood in this church today wouldn’t be what it is. But because I am a man who honours God and honour people that are honourable, I am standing here today.”
The church who had listened in stunned silence found their composure and applauded God’s mercies on the life of their Senior Pastor, who later continued his series on ‘The Power of Vision’.
Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor’s grand occasion, also had in attendance President Goodluck Jonathan, Mike Murdock, amongst other notable guests.
