Temitope Balogun Joshua better known as TB Joshua is the founder of The Synagogue, Church of All Nations which airs on Emmanuel TV in Lagos.
It is unusual to hear that someone has charmed a man of God but in this case, it’s actually love. It is his beautiful wife, Evelyn Joshua. She was born on 17th December, 1968 and she hails from a native of Okala Okpuno in Oshimili North LGA of Delta State.
Evelyn’s charisma, simplicity, and unique personality has been a great charm on her husband when they first met. Evelyn in an interview disclosed that TB Joshua proposed to her 45 minutes after they met.
“Many years ago, I visited a sister somewhere at Ikotun-Egbe, and, then they were talking about a particular man, a prophet to be precise. It was a kind of meeting to be precise. And it’s like everybody in that gathering, or at least half of the people in the room, had actually visited him”.
“So, they were saying a lot of good things about him. I was thrilled. At the end of the whole thing, I called a sister outside and asked whether she could take me to the prophet. I didn’t ask to go there out of curiosity. I actually needed a guide at that point in time”.
“And before then, I had not told him anything about myself, we were just looking at each other until he, at a time, wrote my name on the piece of paper. So, we started talking. He told me a lot of things about myself, both things that I knew, and those that I never knew”.
“I was shocked. He told me about my family, about my past, my present and my future. Altogether, we spent about 45 minutes. At the end of the whole thing, he spoke to me in Yoruba language and said:
“Joo ma binu o. Ma ro pe bi mo se nba gbogbo eniyan ti o ba wa s’odo mi soro ni eleyi o. Mi o ni ale, mi o dee fee ni ale. Sugbon, se oo fe mi?
(Which in Translation means: “Please, don’t be annoyed. Don’t think this is how I talk to everyone that comes to me. I don’t have a concubine, and I don’t want to have a concubine. But can you marry me?)
“Just like that. It was strange, but that gives us an insight into what the Scripture says that the Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. I think that was it. That was how I met him. Some months later, I asked him why he thought it was right seeing a lady for the first time and going on to propose to her. He said he had seen me four days before that very day”.
Evelyn and T.B Joshua tied the knot in 1990 and are blessed with 3 children.
The wonderful woman has always helped her husband in her Godly ministry in matters of counseling and meetings where and whenever her husband is unavailable.
