It sure took me a while to put pen to paper writing this and I do not know why.
I Knew Pa Johnson Olatuyi as a man of many parts. He was a tested and proven Priest of the most-high God, a husband, a father, a great leader and a friend to me. I finally settled to emphasize on his rare nature of “youthfulness”. Pastor Olatuyi’s youthfulness can be seen in his dressing, his zeal, his teachings, and in his lifestyle to mention a few. It is sometime “magical” how the man chose not to be “old” through his years of sojourn on the earth. Pastor Johnson Olatuyi blooms daily with joy, laughter, revelation of the word, energy and in all youthful vibes. His love for Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God never grew old. The man was on fire daily. It does not surprise me when I was told that one his last words on earth was “my spirit is alive”. I can attest to the fact that Pa Olatuyi lived life (Physical and Spiritual) and still lives in my memories and most importantly before his savior and God who kept him renewed in the inner man daily. Like King David prayed, “O God, take not your Holy spirit from us and renew the right Spirit in us all” till we meet to part no more.
I sorely miss him.
