The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that he wanted to have 12 biological children.
The preacher said this on Saturday during the Holy Ghost Service of the 70th Annual Convention of the church which was held at RCCG International Headquarters situated along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The clergyman, however, said that even though his wishes did not come through, he has thousands of spiritual children who are his church members.
The former Mathematics lecturer at the University of Lagos and University of Ilorin announced that 67 babies – 41 boys and 26 girls – were delivered at Redemption City during the one-week programme as of Saturday morning.
He insisted that the RCCG is a mission where God multiplies and soon there won’t be barrenness in the church any longer.
He went on to call on church members who welcomed a child in the last 1 year to come out and a large number of parents danced forward with their babies to the altar areas both in the new and old auditoriums of the church.
“See the homes where there used to be sorrow but now there is joy. I love children because my father in heaven loves them. If I had my way, I would have had 12 of my own but what I couldn’t have biologically, I can now have,” Adeboye said as he received the women and their babies.
