obadare_200_160THE GUARDIAN – IT was a befitting final departure for the renowned late founder of World Soul Winning Evangelistic Ministry, Prophet Timothy Oluwole Obadare, as his remains were Saturday buried at Ileki, Ilesa, Osun State.

His final resting place, WOSEM Shiloh, where the multi-million naira mausoleum is located, played host to people from all walks of life, including the Osun State cabinet, led by Governor Rauf Aregbesola; clergymen, captains of industry, politicians and traditional rulers.

Amid prayers and words of exhortation by clerics, people were urged to emulate the virtues of the late clergyman.

Speaking at the funeral, Aregbesola said Osun State government committed huge sum of money in the celebration of Prophet Obadare, in recognition of his life, having braced the odd of his disability to impact lives.

Aregbesola noted that the life and times of the Ilesa-born preacher have several lessons for people to learn from, pointing out that he demonstrated rare talent in managing his ministry and winning souls for Christ within and outside the country.

He urged Nigerians to take a cue from Obadare’s life by aspiring to succeed in whatever calling they find themselves, irrespective of their physical condition.

According to Aregbesola, the economic benefits of having the final resting place of Obadare in Osun State was enormous due to its tourism potentials, adding that pilgrims and tourists that will be visiting the place, henceforth, will add economic value to Osun State.

“Prophet Obadare is an epitome of wisdom in evangelistic world and his legacies will remain indelible on the sound of time. The lesson his departure thought us is that any position you are, dedication and faithfulness are necessary for success to be guaranteed,” Aregbesola said.

Prayers were offered by ministers of God for the family of the late clergyman, his ministry and Osun State in general.
