I got to know about Prophet TB Joshua some years ago when he gifted a grandma to me and elderly ones in my community, bags of rice, lanterns and some cash. I loved him since that day. But it’s sad to hear that he’s gone so soon. I am pained. Rest in peace Prophet of God. ?? pic.twitter.com/e5KUFZJcJZ
