Speaking on the legacies of the late Bishop, the State Chairman, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria( PFN), Bishop Joshua Opayinka described late Bishop Ketiku as a man of the spirit who worked tirelessly in God’s vineyard to preach the Gospel of Christ.
Reading from Josh. 1:1-9, Bishop Opayinka urged members of the ministry to remain dedicated to their individual leadership assignments saying God’s work must continue to thrive.
While urging them to cry for more of God and daily concentrate themselves to God, Bishop Opayinka said the late Bishop left an indelible mark in the sands of time.
In her charge to members, Pastor Mrs. Odunayo Christianah Omotayo Joshua urged them to keep the flag flying saying the late Bishop came, saw and conquered and that it is now the duty of all members to also fight the good fight of faith.
“It has been God in the last two years and I must say that I miss my husband’s laughter, jokes- everything. “He is watching us as we individually fight the good fight of faith”, she added just as she thanked the leaders of the church for their cooperation and support over the last two years.
