Unknown to many, the late woman of God, Beloved Apostle Bimpe who died on a Ash Wednesday, February 13th, 2013, a day to St. Valentine`s day had planned her burial arrangements before she breathed her last.
As a woman of bravery she`s known to be, the founder of Baba Missions` international ministry held several meetings (in the throes of death) with the trustees of her ministry taken her time to roll out her burial plans as well as charging key people with different roles. She ultimately resolved to be buried in the UK.
She was particular about being celebrated and not mourned. According to her in one of the meetings which yours truly was part of at the St. Joseph`s hospice in London, Apostle Bimpe emphasized that no one should cry after her death, “please I don't want anybody to cry, I want to be celebrated, it should be done like a marriage, please, no one should wear black attire to my burial, it must be a celebration of life”, she warned.
Speaking further, Apostle Bimpe said, to tell you I know what am talking about, am choosing the colour code for my burial, women should wear BABY PINK while men should be on BABY BLUE, it is a sign of joy and happiness, I know where I am going and am sure the angels are ready to receive me in continuation of the celebration.
It would interest you to know that, Beloved Apostle Bimpe and her intelligent first son, Damola worked on the computer to perfect the obituary plans, they both chose the pictures for the obituary and were only waiting for the DoD (Date of Death) before it would be taken to the printers. Quite a queer decision you would say, but there`s nothing as interesting as being privileged to know about one`s death because this courageous woman of substance left no stone unturned to prepare her children not just for the future but the battle ahead.
She made so many decisions some of which are the committee for the burial plans which will be championed by Baba Missions International Ministry. Heading the burial committee is Apostle Temi Ogunmefun who was one of her close confidants, he`s taking the major decision with Damola and other children.
Also very much involved in the burial plans is a top American pastor and founder of the Agape Christian Fellowship in America, Bishop Lonnel Henderson who`s the Chairman Board of Trustees of Baba Missions International. Also on the committee list are one of the hottest Christian couples in the UK, Pastor Tim & Shola Oladipo, others are Esteemed Olukunle Adepoju-Oluwa who stood at her bedside at the hospice together with her elder sister, Mrs. Moji Ladeji-Fayose and Mrs. Cole till death, also Pastor Kemi Idowu in the UK, Chosen Modupe Hyatt from the US, Omopee Petcoff, also a US citizen to mention but a few.
The committee has chosen Tuesday and Wednesday, March 5th and 6th, 2013 for the service of songs and final burial. There`s also a candle light procession in her memory in Abuja this Wednesday by her blood brothers, Emmanuel Oluwayose and Isaac.
