Pastor Mensa Otabil, the General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), has said that his wife likes working to the extent that if there is no work for her, she would create one and get doing it all by herself.
He was saying this during last Sunday’s service when he stood in front of his church members.
Though he did not condemn her immense support, he said that many people wish to see her speak and actively get involved in certain vigorous activities in the church, yet, their expectations have never been met because she loves to work ‘on a low key’ without being seen.
He congratulated her in the open and described her contributions in his life as “a great support” and a “marvelous asset.”
“If I don’t see anything at home, I know whom to ask: where is my shoe? I put it here, where have you put it? She’s always arranging and fixing things but such a wonderful talent, a wonderful gift, a wonderful asset and I’m just so honoured to be her husband. Although she’s not in this service, go and tell her that I said this so she would remember”.
He said: “It’s good just to know that you have somebody that you have with you who is not just with you but also involved in what you’re doing and contributes significantly.
“She’s always fixing something and my quarrels with her is always based on hard work. When we were young in marriage, I’ll tell her: ‘Don’t cook too hard. I can eat anything; I can eat gari [and] soup but she’ll cook and we’ll quarrel because she’s working too hard,” the renowned preacher described his wife to the church.
