Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We'll understand it all by and by.

May the great God of comfort grant comfort to the family and uphold them all till the end.

I never met you; and I never had an association with you; but from what I read and heard, you were a man of God whose life was dedicated to God and humanity. May your legacy of faithfulness to service and embrace of God and humanity linger long among us. Good night!

Your effort in moulding us while you were with us at the then English section of Sabo Baptist Church Ogbomoso can not be forgotten.

God used you graciously for us during Youth and Teenagers Camps.

You shall forever be in our hearts.
Adieu Revd Dr. Ijaola

THE PARADOX OF ADELOKOJI IJAOLA'S DEMISE
Painful But Thankful

For everything you have been to us your return to dust was painful but in everything we are thankful to God.

It is painful to remember your impact in raising men to fulfil God's purpose but we are thankful that you have fulfilled your part of God's purpose.

It's painful you have left without saying good bye but we are thankful you arrived at your mansion with joyful welcome.

It is painful that the Nigerian Baptist Convention have lost a BRAIN BOX in you buy we are thankful that heaven has gained a general.

It is painful to note that your children are still young and they will miss their father but we are thankful that God who made them will father them and see them through, if it were not so some of us would have been nowhere.

It is painful that your wife is now without husband but we are thankful for God is her husband and Father to the fatherless.

It's painful to affirm the reality that you joined the dead but we are thankful to affirm that you have joined the living choir in heaven.

Rev'd Dr Adelokoji Okejimi Ijaola left us in deep pain but his leaving is Praiseful for God's knows why, it is Gainful for he is with Christ and we are thankful for we will meet again.

AU REVOIR

'My Lasting memories of Rev, Dr Adelokoji Ijaola are simple" a hard working, passionate figure of strength, who never waned in his support or love for the Body of Christ, family and our denomination and who soldiered on, even when the times were tough, indeed just as Robert H. Schuller postulated it that "tough times Never Last but tough people do," this moment is tough, but you linger forever in our hearts.

How are the mighty fallen and weapon of war perishing? my brother, friend, classmate, and former Director of Publications, Nigerian Baptist Convention, Jesus, did I write former Director, my God, You are sovereign! How can I refer to you in the past?

TRIBUTE TO OUR DADDY - REV’D DR ADELOKOJI OKEJIMI IJAOLA

TRIBUTE TO OUR DADDY - REV’D DR ADELOKOJI OKEJIMI IJAOLA
As much as it is extremely difficult to come to terms with the fact that you are no more with us, we cannot, but reminiscent of your well lived life and what you stood for while alive.
Daddy Ijaola, you were:
• an exemplary Christian and true child of God till you breathed your last breath
• a man of integrity, a visionary leader and of many positive impacts
• a lover of Mission together with Mummy (the wife) through BLEM International Ministry and a giver to the core, our family have benefited a lot from your kind gesture.
• a mentor to those who were ready to learn. As members of Young Minister’s Forum WhatsApp group are already missing you.
• man of full of ideas and innovations
Daddy, we least expect that you will leave now but who are we to question God. He knows better and it pleases Him to take you home to be with Him. That we will miss you is an understatement, Sleep on in the bosom of your Master whom you served with all your might and resources.
Our consolation is that you died at your duty post and did not deny your faith in Christ Jesus your maker and caller. You came, you saw, you conquered and meet your Lord. “Let me die the death of the righteous…” Numbers 23:10b.
Our prayer is that the Lord will uphold those you left behind, most especially, Mummy, Oyinkansola and Ayomide. Amen.  
Finally, we believe that for you our Daddy, REV’D DR ADELOKOJI OKEJIMI IJAOLA, the words of John Donne (father of metaphysical poet and cleric of the Church of England) has now come to pass: “I shall rise from the dead… I shall see the Son of God, the sun of Glory and shine myself as the Sun Shines. I shall be united to the Ancient of days, to God Himself, who had no morning, never began… No man ever saw God and lived. And yet, I shall not live till I see God; and when I have seen Him, I shall never die.” Adieu!
