The first time I saw her
I felt she is too hard
She earns respect
Respects others

Dedicated to her work
Diligent in her duties
Commitment and loyalty
Are the two words
That best describes
Her kind of person

A no-nonsense
But friendly and lovely lady
She cherishes her work
And values relationships

A dutiful and godly lady she is
One who doesn’t encourage mediocrity
But commends hardwork and excellence

Who is she
She is no other person
Than Pastor Biola Adeyoola
The amiable and beautiful Administrator of
The Latter Rain Assembly
A worthy and faithful
Executive Assistant
To the serving overseer

Sincerely, from afar
You have been to me
The true picture of
A God-fearing
And contented lady
A virtuous lady you are!

Words may fail me to fully express myself
But I want you to know that
Since my first close encounter
With you in January 2006
I had always observed you
Whenever such occasion had arisen

And I’ve come to conclude
On the fact and truth that
You are a blessing
To this generation of youths
And also to the body of Christ at large

You may not sound like Pastor Tunde Bakare
But you are a unique minister
With a unique and distinct message
For God’s people

I trust that God
That had helped you this far
Would satisfy you on all sides
And grant you your heart desires
According to the abundance
Of His grace and mercy

I am sending this
At such a time as this
To assure you
That the God that you are serving
Is still very much on your side
And regardless of whatever you may be going through
He’ll surely see you through
And you’ll LAUGH LAST

Ma, I sincerely love and appreciate you
Though I might not have been able
To express it before now
But you have become
A godly standard to me
And every time you stand to talk
I place great demands
On God’s grace upon your life

You are sincerely appreciated!
