The Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) hosted a memorial ceremony for its originator, Prophet T.B. Joshua, who perished on June 5.
According to sources, the ceremony was held at the SCOAN headquarters in Ikotun, Lagos State. Joshua’s funeral activities included the liturgy.
According to reports, SCOAN announced on June 29 at a press conference that the week of July 5 to July 11 would be devoted to a series of Joshua’s “laying to rest” festivities titled “Celebrating the Life and Legacy of Prophet Joshua (1963 to 2021).”
Evelyn, Joshua’s spouse, noted in a eulogy that her 31-year marriage to the late prophet isn’t without difficulties.
She stated that her spouse educated her that difficulties enhanced God’s children.
