Nigerian gay pastor, Rev. Jide Macaulay is 50 years old and he thanked God for His mercies.
Nigerian born gay pastor, Reverend Jide Macaulay, says he is really a fulfilled man despite the fact that many in his country do not see anything good in him due to his stance as a homosexual.
Rev. Macaulay who is the founder of House of Rainbow, a church he opened in Lagos some years back to cater to the spiritual needs of homosexuals and lesbians, before he was forced to abandon the church and relocate to the UK, celebrated his 50th birthday on November 3, and had some touching words of thanks to almighty God.
This is what he wrote on his Facebook page:
"It is unbelievable that this moment has come. I AM 50 YEAR OLD. I am delighted and grateful to the almighty God, who is incomparable, the omnipotent and magnificent God. If I have a thousand tongues it is not enough to express my gratitude. I just want to say THANK YOU GOD.
I also want to say thanks to my parents, who laboured in my upbringing, though my mother is late. I believe she is looking down from heaven with joy and blessings for my future. I am grateful for my dad too, who through all hardship has the forbearance of hope and wisdom of a father.
I want to say thanks to the thousands of people who have befriended me in joyful and difficult circumstances, too numerous to mention here, but I am joyful because of the unavoidable contributions in my life.
Half a century is a gift, everyday will always be a precious bonus.
I say THANK YOU JESUS, MY SAVIOUR AND MY LORD."
