My Heart Still Looks For You - Dad

(Ifo, Ogun State, Nigeria)

My Dad, precisely on Wednesday, 31st of August 2016 at exactly 9.38am, you embark on the transition to your creator, God Almighty, The Giver and Sustainer of life. The day and the hour you responded to the final call on the earth was a remarkable day and notable hour in the history of the Church (The Sacred C & S Church, Ifo District Church Council Headquarters) where you worship your maker. An ascension day to Mount Zion and new Mercy Land Foundation Laying hour. Glory be to God!!!

Indeed, I am yet to believe that the root I followed to this world has gone on the journey of no return to the great beyond because any time I visit where your body is laid, seeing your meek and gentle face like that of new baby, it is hard for me to believe that you have left us and that your body is in preparation to be committed to mother-earth.

Pa David Olu Adesanmi (also know as "BABA IJO"), my mind still talks to you; my heart still looks for you. My soul knows you are at peace with your maker for the truth you stand for in the Church, Communities and Family while you were here in the physical body and with the testimonies we are receiving after your departure.

"Ara Oba mode" (Son of Kenta-Oba Town), “You came, you saw, you conquered through Jesus Christ, your Messiah" continue to rest in HIS bosom.

The song of “Jim Reeves” has been your echoing words to us since past 9years before your final departure on 31st of August 2016 that:
“This world is not my home I'm just a passing through
My treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
he angels beckon me from heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore
Oh lord you know I have no friend like you
If heaven's not my home then lord what will I do
The angels beckon me from heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore…”

“Debii” (means David) as they use to call you in your mother’s dialect, continue to rest in Christ. Good Night Father!!!!!!!!

From your son: Pastor (Prince) Adeniyi Olu Adesanmi
