Betty Lasher, the woman who led Bishop Oyedepo to Christ

Founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo today prayed profusely for the woman who led her to Christ On February 19, 1969

The woman, Ms Betty Lasher was a missionary teacher in Nigeria when she had the opportunity to preach Christ to Bishop Oyedepo and several other young people in his high school.

Oyedepo stated that the woman has many children in faith in Nigeria noting that many of them are still standing for the Lord and doing exploits.

He then asked that prayers be said for Mama Lasher who clocks 90 today, June 18 saying he was certain that she would have many crowns on her credit in eternity.

Oyedepo said in a video posted on his Facebook page earlier in the week, “You could catch love on her face. She loved kids. The love of Jesus radiating from her eyeballs, she caught me with that love and several others.


“We were all getting set to be gathered there but for the lockdown of aviation around the world. Many notable sons, came out of that woman. Sweet mummy. She is alive, well and bouncing.


“I sent to the ones coordinating that look, we will all talk to her on Thursday but we are still going to be there. The lockdown is not forever, the lockdown will be un-locked any moment.”


On his birthday earlier today, Oyedepo called for prayers saying “Great woman of God, this church proclaims the blessing of God upon your life. You will not weep over any of us that are your spiritual children. We will gather and be with you and rejoice with you. You are not permitted to die with any sickness or disease. This is our expression of our love for you. Thank God for being alive to see your children doing great for the gospel.”

I congratulate Miss Betty Lasher on her 90th birthday. I am.proud to have been her.student and one of her many disciples during her missionary days. She is a lover of Jesus Christ, a.sound Bible teacher and a disciplinarian to the core. The body of Christ is blessed to have such a great woman still alive and well in such a time as this.

It’s beautiful to hear her teaching on the life of Christ. I sat under her for about three years at ECWA Theological College Kagoro in Kaduna State
