“I thank God that I never listened to the Unilag lecturer who warned
me against marrying Pastor Matthew, otherwise, I would have probably
ended up in one room corner here in Lagos. But see how my life has
turned out to be, travelling all over the world to preach and
minister. The lecturer never saw any future in Pastor Matthew as a
Pastor. When I married Pastor Matthew, I just wanted to be a full-time
housewife but he was the one who really discovered me and saw the
beauty of God in my life. So, he mentored me to be what I am today.”
Born on the 27th of September 1959, to a Pastor of the Foursquare
Gospel Church, the fireful woman of God never looked forward to
marrying a Pastor until God changed her mindset. “Marrying a Pastor
was the last thing on my mind, my Dad is a Pastor and as a Pastor’s
daughter, I dreaded marrying a Pastor. My Dad has two brothers that
are Pastors also but of different denominations. I never really wanted
to marry a Pastor but God knows the plans He has for our lives and
they are always better.”

Her personal ministry is to equip women of God with the necessary
