By Samuel Olamide Osifuye

The Late Pastor Amos Olushola Abiye Olorunpomi has been laid to rest. It was a celebration of a fulfilled life as children, family, and friends gathered to give him a befitting burial.

The burial rites, which started with a service of songs and Christian Wake on Wednesday 26th June, 2024 ended with the internment and Outing/Thanksgiving service on Thursday 27th June, 2024.

While the late icon was buried at Atan Cemetery, Yaba, Lagos, Thanksgiving and Outing Service was held at CAC Oke-Igbala, Ketu DCC headquarters, Ikosi-Ketu, Lagos.

The Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church Akinyele Region, Pastor S.A. Adedayo in his exhortation at the Thanksgiving and Outing Service titled 'Christians' Attitude Towards Death', urged the congregants to live life in a way that focuses on heaven as we would take nothing away from the world.

"Death, as we understand it, is the separation of our soul from this earthly body. Each of us, alive today, carries within us the spark of life, but when that spark departs, our bodies cease to function, and we face what lies beyond", said Pastor Adedayo.

The Cleric said "the scripture teaches us in Genesis and Ezekiel that death came into the world through sin. It's a consequence we all face, for it is appointed unto all men once to die. Yet, amidst this inevitability, there is hope—a remedy found in Jesus Christ. He conquered death, offering eternal life to all who believe in Him."

"Therefore, as Christians, our attitude towards death should not be one of fear or despair. Instead, we should live with the assurance of eternal life through Christ. We should comfort one another with the hope of reunion with our loved ones who have gone before us. Our grief, though real, should be tempered by the knowledge that death is not the end but a passage to eternal life with our Lord," he said.

Thanking God for a fulfilled life, the younger brother to the deceased, Bishop Michael Oludare Olorunpomi said "Late Pastor A.O.A. Olorunpomi was born dead, and it took ministers of God 12 hours of prayer before he came back to life, as the mother had suffered many stillbirths before him. And thereafter lived to serve God, winning many souls into the kingdom of God."

In his appreciation, the CACYOF Coordinator Akinyele Region, and second child of the deceased, Pastor Emmanuel Olu Olorunpomi expressed gratitude to the attendees, illustrating with a story: "Imagine a rat riding on an elephant crossing a wooden bridge. Upon reaching the other side, the rat exclaimed, 'Hey, elephant, we shook the bridge!' Pastor Olorunpomi likened the attendees to the elephant, thanking them for being the strength that shook the bridge."

The event had in attendance many dignitaries such as Superintendent, Akinyele Region, Pastor S.A. Adedayo; Director of Youth Affairs CAC Nigeria & Overseas, Pastor S.O. Gbuyiro; Superintendent of CAC Ketu DCC, Pastor M.A Ajayi; Superintendent, CAC Ajeromi DCC, Pastor G.O Nwobodo; Superintendent, Owutu Zone, Pastor Festus Oluwadele; Superintendent, CAC Ayere Ijumu District, Pastor A.O. Elegbeleye; Special Assistant to the General Overseer & Pastor-in-charge of RCCG Region 1, Ebute-Metta, Pastor Dele Balogun; Deputy Director of Youth Affairs CAC Nigeria & Overseas, Pastor Olusola Oke; among others.

Pa Amos Olushola Abiye Olorunpomi lived for 80 years before he joined the saints triumphant.
