Wonders shall never cease to end! As LAGOS (AFP) – Samuel Akinbode Sadela, Nigeria’s oldest preacher at 107, he is the founder of Gospel Apostolic Church, he has been on the pulpit for 75 years. Sadela first got married in 1934, and the marriage lasted for 21 years, but none of the couple’s seven children lived beyond their infancy
A second marriage, consummated in 1965, was blessed with four children, but only two survived. His second wife died in 2001. And then he met the new woman of his life, 77 years his junior.
The pastor said he derived his strength from God after marrying a 30-year woman. “The Lord is my strength. I am very strong and energetic,” they quoted him as saying after the wedding in Lagos.
The marriage with Christiana Sadela is “a fulfillment of the scripture and worthy of thanksgiving and appreciation to God”, his church said in a statement. “Nothing is impossible for God,” he said.
