I had no shoes as a teenager due to poverty



The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said he had no shoes as a teenager due to poverty.

Adeboye stated this while speaking during a sermon themed ‘Perfect Gift’, aired on his Facebook page on Saturday.

The 80-year-old cleric said things can change for the better for those accept Christ.

He said: “Some of you who know a little bit about my background, you know when they talk about people coming from a rocky background, that means from a background of hardship.

“My own rocky background was rock among the rocks. My father was so poor, (that) poor people called him poor.

“The elders have a saying, when there is hardship for the husband, and hardship for the wife, there must be hardship for the children.

“The hardship rubbed off on me. For the first 18 years of my life, I had no shoes. My father was so poor.

“The day he bought an umbrella, we were rejoicing, but look at me today, look at what Jesus can do.

“He can change the poor to the rich; change the unknown to the known.”
