The Senior Pastor of all House on the Rock Churches, Paul Adefarasin, is presently mourning the loss of his 98-year-old mother, Hilda.
Announcing her death on Instagram, Pastor Paul wrote: “We thank the Almighty God for the life of our mother, Mrs. Hilda Joanne Adefarasin (nee Petgrave), who passed unto glory peacefully in her home, on the evening of Sunday the 5th of February 2023, at the age of 98 years.
“She is survived by children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
“As we reflect with gratitude over the illustrious life of service led by Mrs. Hilda Joanne Adefarasin as she parented her children, doted over her husband, and impacted generations and communities, we are reminded of her unwavering love for our LORD Jesus Christ.
“We covet your prayers and ask that you do allow us these initial days to grieve privately.
“Obsequies, venue for condolence visits & visiting hours will be announced soon.”
This is coming just three weeks after his mother marked her 98th birthday.
While celebrating her 98th birthday back in January, Pastor Adefarasin wrote:
“Today, my siblings, my family and I pause for a moment and join everyone who knows and loves you to celebrate a true heroine on her 98th birthday.
I am certainly most grateful to God for keeping you not only alive to witness another year but for also keeping you well to know the blessings of watching all your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren flourish in their various roles and stations.
Thank you Mummy for being so selfless, an enormous example and a powerful illustration of what it means to be a virtuous woman in the fast-paced nature of modern-day society.
Your love for everyone you come in contact with continues to be worth emulating and today and every day, I celebrate and honour you for who you are and all you do.
It is my prayer that God adds life to your years and years to your life with His divine strength, love, joy and the peace that passes all understanding.
Enjoy your new year knowing that we love you dearly.
Happy birthday, Mummy.”
May mama Hilda Adefarasin’s soul rest in peace
