The story of Ifeanyi Adefarasin and her husband
Pastor Ifeanyi and her husband Pastor Paul Adefarasin have not been that successful all their lives. When they met and got married in 1995, witnesses claim, they had nothing. She managed to see the future success in her husband and never feared to give birth to their first baby in a poor half-empty room where they lived. She didn’t even worry because of fact that her prospective husband was once a drug addict.
They had no car of their own, only an old one that was ragged and almost broken. When they finally had a house to live in, a house that was their own, they needed practically everything because the only furniture they had was a kerosene kitchen stove to cook some food.
All the friends of the young spouses mentioned that even through that hard time when their first baby was born in that empty house, they never complained. Eventually, they were able to get some furniture but the process was very slow. Pastor Paul never received any salary for serving in the church.
