My first meeting with Uncle Michael was Christmas Day 2008, he was coming to Milton Keynes to visit his sister Martha and stay with us for a few weeks. It got to 3pm and no word from Uncle Michael. Dorothy and Ebony had prepared Christmas lunch and Granma Martha said “we can’t waste this food, we can put some aside for Uncle Michael” so we sat down to eat I am sure that I had only managed to pick up my knife and fork and the phone rang, it was Uncle Michael he had arrived at Heathrow airport only to find that there was a very limited train and bus service and he had missed the last bus for the day. He had been told that there was one more train that day going to Paddington Station and he was heading towards it. Before I could say “wait at Heathrow and we will come and collect you” his phone went dead. It took Dorothy, Ebony and I three hours to find Paddington Railway station (we actually had to pay a taxi to lead us to the station – no satnav as all our phones had run out of charge). At last, we found Uncle Michael and made our way back to Milton Keynes. My first and lasting impression of Uncle Michael was his calmness his total belief and trust in God, he knew that God would find a way to fulfil HIS plan all Uncle Michael had to do was to be ready to act. We could all learn from Uncle Michael.
Today is one of those days that you hope is never going to come, but it does we come together from around the world to say goodbye to Uncle Michael for now, but we know that we will be reunited with him at some point in the future. Farewell dear friend/companion I miss our talks and your laughter.

Uncle, councillor, friend
always ready to offer a sympathetic shoulder to cry on, you shared your own story and told me to let go when I had to deal with some complex issues in my life. that advice on auntie’s sofa changed everything!
I woke up the next morning relieved, free of the huge cloud that was hanging over me!
I miss you dearly uncle

Fond memories of our little chats to and from your doctors’ appointments, the opportunity to spend time with you at that time was no coincidence, moments that I’ll cherish forever x

We celebrate a life well lived, a wonderful life that touched so many. A great ambassador for Christ, you soldiered on till the end!
You are sorely missed uncle

Demrifa due x

Dr Bediako good friends with my late dad.Real nice gentleman may your soul rest in perfect peace.

My pastor, my counsellor Dr Badu, I will always remember the moments and many advices you gave me. Little did I know I will not see you again when we meet in December 2018. You were happy to see us visiting from New Zealand. I remember you taking us out for a meal. You are such a great person. Exactly 2 years and you are gone. It was hard for us to take the news as it was around the anniversary of the wedding you humbly blessed 25 years ago.
We would have loved to see you again on our next trip to Ghana but God knows best. We thank God for everything as His word encoureages to do so. You have fought a good fight, you have finished the race and kept the faith as an example for us all. You will always, always be in our hearts. May you Rest in peace.

Psalm 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”
The last day I spent with my father Prof. Michael Badu Bediako on his sickbed at the hospital is still fresh on my memory because I promised him of returning to see him again within some few days, but to my utter dismay I received the news of his passing suddenly with a shock.
I met Professor in line of work when he needed my construction services but we grew fond of each other suddenly when he realized my passion for the things of God, that was when I was just at the beginning of my ministry .The relationship started as a Father and a son but grew later to the extent that he once told me “Kobby you are no more a son but a junior brother to me” . I remember when we went across the country to evangelize in the various towns and villages to spread the gospel with his friends from abroad. The training seminars were very impactful on my ministry and personal life, I sincerely appreciate the time we time spent together as a father, a mentor and a big brother.
May the protection of God continue to be with as you journey on……. Rest in the bosom of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
You are dearly loved.
Ps Kobby

A MIGHTY OAK TREE HAS FALLEN.
When an oak tree falls, it carries with it the sorrows of a generation, because there are many whose living depended on its acorns as fruits, or its timber for furniture. For, the oak, as a deciduous tree, even though evergreen, sheds off all its leaves at the end of a period of growth. Grandpa, "Dr. Badu" as we affectionately call him, was the mighty oak tree of the family and beyond, his shed cover us all. He support everyone of us be it financially, spiritually and emotionally. He was a teacher, advisor, counselor, preacher etc to us all. We will forever miss you, Dr Badu.
Rev 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this down: Blessed are those who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the Spirit, they are blessed indeed, for they will rest from their hard work; for their good deeds follow them!” I know you are resting peacefully with your Maker. Rest In Peace, till we meet again.

I remember when I visited Ghana in 2009 to research and write my dissertation for my master's. You were of great help and an encouragement to me. A true example of a man of God with a heart of service. Thank you for the many encouragements along the journey. You will be greatly missed!

Our sharpest icon, Dr. Kofi Badu-Bediako, which I called "the teacher of Teachers" have fallen into a deep pit. Dr. Bediako you introduced me how to take a Bible School to Christian Leaders who could not gain the required qualification through seminars and training's. You were a mentor, my teacher and my pastor.
Dr. Bediako, the whole world surely have miss you forever in many hearts. May your soul Rest in Perfect peace.
Much condolence to the entire families.

Tribute to Pastor Badu
From David and Beth French and Family
and the Pastors of
South City Christian Centre
New Zealand


We offer our sincere and heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the Bediako family, who we respect and love with all our hearts

In the words of the Maori people of New Zealand, a country where our much respected Dr Badu lived for many years:

Kua hinga te totara i te wao nui a Tane
The totara has fallen in the forest of Tane


A Totara is a huge tree, native to New Zealand, similar to many found in the forests of Ghana… This proverb is saying, “We have lost a great man.” And Badu was a great man, used by God to see many souls swept into the Kingdom.

We remember him, not just as a loved one who has died, but as a godly man who truly lived!

We got to know Badu when we invited him to speak at our church in Christchurch in the early 1990s. It was, as they say, “a match made in heaven” and led to a lasting relationship with Badu, the Bediako family, and churches in Volta Region, Togo and beyond. 
Dr Badu was a man with a heavenly vision. His purpose in life was to see men, women and children prepared for a life beyond this life. To meet him was to be drawn into that vision. Being part of his team was a privilege and an honour. He now lives forever in our hearts as we continue the work.

Our beloved brother has been taken from us for a season but, as we’re faithful to Christ, we know that we will meet again in Glory.

Today the hosts of heaven echo the greeting,

“Welcome home!  Well-Done good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord!”

Uncle Kofi I can't believe am writing a tribute because of your passing.
Words cannot describe this difficult moment we all going through as a family. You touched so many lives by your selfless and acts of kindness by you preaching the word of God to those wanting to listen and changed so many peoples lives through your Religious work. People loved your bubbly and calm and gentle personality. Your death has left a void that no one can ever fill. Everyone in the whole family felt the pain that you had been suffering for so long with your health and you certainly in a peaceful place with no pains now, but we will miss the love you shared with us. Yes those memories will live on.
The Bible says in everything give thanks and I am indeed full of thanksgiving of having had you in my life. We love you but God loves you more and I know that he has you resting comfortably in his everlasting arms.
Rest Well Uncle Kofi Badu.
Rest In Perfect Peace.

From Your Niece Adjzo and Simon and my children.

My friend, in-Law, smart & bright one, I want you to rest & keep on resting peacefully till we meet again. The first time I met you in early 1964, you devoted your time in preparing me for my up coming    add- Math, Exam in The WAEC. While doing that I was having a crush on you. I bet you did not even know that fact. The review with me helped me to pass the exam. Then you visited me & my family in mid- 80’s at Woodland Hills, CA. In 2002 we met again in London, & in 2014, your niece, Bebe, and I visited you at your home at Adenta. Even though we both had our own family and even thou, you took the lead to depart before us, my love has not died. But it hurts by the sequence of the events, however, I know that you are no longer in pain, and that’s comforting. Please Rest In perfect Peace forever.

Badu I miss your sweet smile and your gentle spirit. Ministering with you all over the world was a great privilege. The power of the Holy Spirit working through you to touch broken hearts and seeing healing come through your touch. Your wisdom and spiritual understanding was always spot on. We will soldier on till we meet again in the presence of our Father.

This is the man anytime I meet him, he will begin to tell me about my future, and the conversation is always like any normal talk yet if you are in the spirit, you will understand what he means. In fact God used him to inspire me any moment I get in contact with him.
He has been a father and a source of inspiration to me.
Father Rest in Peace

Professor Michael Badu Bediako, how can I forget your affectionate love you use to show to me any time I visit you in Accra.  How I will forever miss your teachings forever.  Your guardians in my ministry,  your explanations whenever I feel confused. Daddy, how I affectionately call you, who will replace you in my life?  Tears will never stop dropping from my eyes, anytime I remember you and how  you used  to feel for the lost souls., whenever we are discussing Evangelism. Your passion for the loss soul, your caring for the poor,  your heart for the spreading of the Gospel,  indeed you are a role model, a teacher, a mentor, a father and a hero in the kingdom of God. Daddy we love you, but your maker loves you most. We know you have fought the good fight and won the  race, your crown awaiting.  Have your peaceful and perfect rest in the bosom of your father, the God Almighty. Damirifa Due.

I needed "Spiritual Help"

Shared by Jacob ASOMANING on March 4, 2021
Prof. Badiako was my lecturer at Dominion Seminary, Accra Ghana. I was poised on working for God but I was then tormented by a demon of masturbation. I had sought help through all means I knew how to including Prayers, fastings etc. One day in class Prof begun to preach about demonology and shared testimonies of how God has used him to help many across the nation's. I believed, and went to meet him after class. He arranged for a counseling session and after two sessions with him, I was set free forever. Today I am in ministry and helping many because he did not only help me but taught me how to help others I will meet in the course of ministry. Prof. lives on in my heart, his ministry continuous and truly he will forever be missed❤️
