According to a publication by PM News, late Lasher who died on Sunday, August 28 was instrumental to Oyedepo’s faith in Christianity at the age of 15 and as such is known as his mother in the Lord.
Oyedepo noted that she actually changed his life and the last time he heard from Lasher was in July.
“My mother in the Lord went home two nights ago, Betty Lasher. I sobbed. I rose and wrote a poem, 53 years ago she changed my life. I spoke to her last month. You said you are too fast, I am not hearing you too well.
“I sensed in my spirit, that her time had come. Her aide had to talk to me and tell it to her one by one. She went upstairs like a saint. She was 92 on her last birthday. Let me give you a clip, Sweet Mother, Sweet Savour, Sweet Memory.”
The man of God expressed certainty that his deceased mentor is now in her mansion in heaven wearing a crown for all her labours, adding that whoever is saved in his ministry will be credited to her account.
“If I don’t know anything, I know sweet mommy is in her mansion. I know she has a crown right now because if I wasn’t saved, I won’t be in ministry. Whatever people got saved here will also be credited to her account. That is what happens to people you are leading to Christ.”
