For Reverend Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi aka Iya Adura, birthdays mean a lot to her.
Sauntering into age 58 is indeed a moment to celebrate and thank her creator for allowing her to witness yet another year on planet earth.
Most especially in a period when many have lost their life due to the deadly global pandemic. For the prayerful woman, being alive in good health is a testament that she is indeed blessed by her creator.
The generous clergywoman and Minister in Charge, Love of Christ Generation Church (C and S), who is known for cheerful giving, was caught off guard in the celebration of her big day on April 3 during the Easter break.
Last Saturday, at a private location in Shiro Landmark beach Lagos, she was surprised by her immediate family, friends, church members as they converged at the location to give her the surprise of her life at the birthday dinner to celebrate her 58th birthday.
The celebrant in her usual smiling and respectful nature arrived at the venue in the company of her husband and close family members fitted in a white gown looking different from the regular prayer attire.
She was looking way younger than her age as she could pass for a 30-year-old woman. Overwhelmed by the love shown to her by those around her she rained prayers on those who organized the surprise party in her honour.
