Deeper Life Secretary explains why Kumuyi ‘broke down’ during Easter Retreat

More revelations have emerged over the recent failing health of the
General superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William
Folorunsho Kumuyi during the just concluded national Easter Retreat of
the church.
According to Dailypost , the former university don
broke down during the retreat and was forced to rest on Saturday after
losing his voice the previous day.

Explaining why the preacher broke down, the church secretary, Pastor
Jerry Asemota while addressing the congregation Saturday morning said
the sudden health failure of the pastor was not unconnected to his
recent marathon engagements across the continent.

According to Asemota, “With much pleading, we had to convince our
pastor to rest. You could recall that lately, he was engaged in series
of rival meetings across the continent. Only recently, he was in Abuja,
Taraba, Bayelsa, Imo, Edo, Akure and Ibadan. He was also in Ghana,
Namabia and Togo and other West African countries.

He’s human and needs to rest, so we enjoined you all to pray for
God’s strength upon his life and bear with us at this time. He is not
going on holiday but he needs serious rest. I am very sure that before
the programmes end, your Pastor will bounce back to complete what he had
started” Asemota assured.

Kumuyi who eventually bounced back during the last day of the retreat
did not make any reference to his health condition during his
However, he was seen very agile and vibrant during the last day of the power-packed programme.

The soft-spoken preacher in his last sermon entitled “Reigning
Through the Victory of Jesus” said, once you have the vision with Jesus
Christ, you can achieve anything.

Speaking from the book of Luke 6:19, Kumuyi said in these perilous
times, one needs to make Christ his focus. According to him, holiness is
important as without it, no man can see God.

The preacher testified of a recent miracle that happened during his last programme in Bayelsa State.

According to him, after the programme, he went to the office of the
state overseer for a meeting and in the process some persons brought
three men on wheelchairs and dropped them behind his car.

“When I saw them, I told them in name of Jesus rise up and walk and I entered my car of drove off.

“Before we could reach the government house where we lodged, we
received a call from them that they have started walking. That shows
what God can do when you focus on him,” he told his congregation.
