“You grew from eight mem­bers’ assembly sitting on the mat, to the wooden chair, and to the level we are today. You grew me to be the woman I am today.

“For gold to become gold, it must pass through fire. I stand here today to say thank you for choosing me, caring and nurturing me. Thank you for being a good father to the chil­dren, thank you for shielding me from those who were bent on soiling our lives, yet you were undeterred,” the wife said.

She lauded the late prophet for spending his life on things that would outlive him.

Evelyn said her husband’s passing was peaceful and ex­pressed sadness that the man of God would not be seen phys­ically again.

“It is, however, comforting that you have gone home after service, sleep on my beloved. Sleep on my God’s General,” she said.

“He told me that the work of God is so beautiful to do. Indeed you lived a prayerful life of sac­rifice till your last moment on earth. I have no reservations to say my dad was a true humani­tarian to this generation,” Sarah said.

The second and third daugh­ters, Miss Promise and Heart Joshua, also gave there tributes at the programme.

Brian Moshi, his son-in-law, said the prophet exemplified the true meaning of living by the grace of God.

He said Joshua was a man who could be so many things at the same time.

Moshi described the proph­et as ‘a trail blazer’ and wished him eternal rest.
