Producer Tedd Josiah reminisces late wife in a long tear-jerking post

Published

Music producer and Businessman, Tedd Josiah has had to raise his daughter all by himself after his wife´s untimely demise that remains engraved in his mind till date.

Over the weekend, the legendary producer penned a long, yet soulful message online, that moved fans and followers to tears.

A dedication to his late wife, Regina Katar, who left behind an adorable daughter in a mysterious manner.

 

Tedd starts off:

I MISS MY FRIEND
What is grief like?

For him, grief remains a mystery, never to be understood.

Well it’s like the waves of an ocean sometimes they are high sometimes low but ur guaranteed they will hit. What causes them? Memories, jolts of confusion, uncertainty and moments of self doubt all play roles in this. How long does it take to heal? U don’t heal u just learn to walk with the limp.

Flashback

As he recalls that fateful day that his wife breathed her last:

Friday 7:30pm dinner at home with mama and JayJay she’d cooked rice and chicken and was happy beyond words… then a movie…. as JayJay slept between us on the couch.
After the film we went to bed and she’d talked right thru the movie!!!!
3am as she breast fed she complained that heat head hurt, took meds and threw them up. So we dashed to hospital 🏥 and she fell asleep and never woke up again.

And that was it! She was no more! He was shocked beyond words, some sort of trauma I´d say, left behind with a little girl to nurture all by himself.

“The great Potter’s” When precious Jars 🏺 accidentally fall and break in Japan 🇯🇵 they put it back together with golden glue and their value increases immeasurably. But their is a potterer much greater that put our broken shards together and doesn’t need to use gold but rather just His Holy Spirit. God can make your broken shards vanish and make u a new. The old creation will vanish and a new u comes to life. Heart 💔break, death & loss, joblessness, broken dreams a loss of direction and vision, a broken home and health. He can make it all better because He can & Because the dust u walk on is all it takes for Him to breathe life into us. Before ur chards cut u and cut those around u ask the great potter’s to put u back together and make u new. As His word says “knock and the door shall be open…” He is a loving Good God 💕💕💕Happy Sunday

Published

Condolences are pouring in for Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, who died on Saturday aged 79. Bonnke is well-known for his Great Gospel Crusades throughout Africa.

Leaders and Christians across the world paid glowing tribute to a man they said touched their hearts with his message on Holy Spirit evangelism.

Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari mourned the renowned evangelist, describing his death as a great loss to Nigeria, Africa and the whole world.

“Great loss to Nigeria, Africa and the entire world,” said Buhari in a tweet.In his tribute, televangelist Benny Hinn said few had touched his life as Bonnke did.“The home-going celebration for my dear friend Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke has begun. Few have touched my life as he did. My heart is broken for his wife Anni, and his family, yet I join them in honouring the remarkable legacy of a life well lived,” said Hinn in a tweet.

American televangelist Paula White-Cain said Bonnke “was one of the greatest evangelists of our time”.“I was honoured to minister with you on several occasions. You served Jesus well and finished your course,” she said.Bonnke first visited Kenya in 1988 and instantly became a household name, with a number of parents even naming their children after him.

He was born in 1940 in Königsberg, Germany. The city on the Baltic Sea is now called Kaliningrad, and is part of Russia.His passing was confirmed by his family through a Facebook post on Saturday. In the post, his wife Anni Suelze said Bonnke passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family.

“Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, it is with sorrow that the Bonnke family would like to announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on December 7, 2019,” said Suelze.

Unwavering support

She added: “We want to thank you on behalf of him and our family for your kind love and unwavering support, which enabled him to preach the matchless message of salvation to countless people.”

It has now been 45 years since Bonnke founded the international ministry of Christ for all Nations (CfaN), which currently has offices in the United States, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Nigeria, South Africa, Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong.

The Pentecostal preacher oversaw more than 79 million conversions to Christianity, his organisation says.In his biography posted on the CfaN website, it was said Bonnke, who was the son of a pastor, gave his life to the Lord at age nine, and heard the call to the African mission field before he was even a teenager.After attending Bible college in Wales, and his ordination in Germany, he pastored a church and then went on to start missionary work in Africa.

“It was there, in the small mountain kingdom of Lesotho, that God placed upon his heart the vision of ‘the continent of Africa,” read the document. He founded CfaN in 1974.

Live audiences

Bonnke drew some of the largest live audiences in history. In November 2000, at a single meeting in Lagos, Nigeria, 1.6 million attendees heard him preach.His activities in Africa at times stirred controversy.In 1991, there were religious riots in the Nigerian city of Kaduna after police granted permission for Bonnke to hold a revival meeting and thousands of Muslims took to the streets in uproar.

At least eight people were reported killed.In 1999, 16 people died in a stampede during a rally organised by Bonnke in Benin City, Nigeria.

In 2014, the Associated Press reported that he was living in a $3 million (Sh305 million) apartment near Palm Beach, Florida in the United States.

Bonnke held a farewell gospel campaign in 2017 in Nigeria, after which he stepped down as the organisation’s leader due to health issues. The ministry is now under the leadership of Evangelist Daniel Kolenda.

He was charged with the murder of Skuse and three other counts of wounding with intent.

Seven suspects were arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder and attempted murder but four were released.

The other three men, aged 23, 24 and 29, were released on bail pending further investigations.

According to family and friends, Skuse had been laughing and joking minutes before he was stabbed.

His family has since described him as an “innocent soul” who had been acting as a “peacemaker” when he was killed in the flat.

“It wasn’t even a big party, the girl was turning 25 and she only invited 25 people,” Ms Mugo said.

Speaking to Barking and Dagenham Post, she said Skuse had just finished work at the factory where he worked as a supervisor at 10pm and left at around midnight.

She said her son got a lift to the party in a friend’s car to the party. Skuse was stabbed when a fight broke out in the morning. Ms Mugo said she was informed of her son’s death by a friend of Skuse’s.

“There were boys injured, a boy dead, boys in the police station and others still in the flat. The police told us to give our details and names of our children,” she said.

Ms Mugo said friends, family and neighbours and members of the Kenyan community have supported her following her son’s death.

“I keep hoping he’s going to come home. It’s hard. I still think I’m in a dream,” she said.
