A Nigerian pastor identified as Juliet Olele has put a smile on a 72-year-old widow's face as she built her a house after she was abandoned by her son.
The pastor who extended the kind gesture through Comforter's Hand of Care Foundation she founded had earlier visited the woman at her dilapidated wooden home.
How it all started
In the video shared on Facebook by a Nigerian man identified as MC see gobe, the pastor assured the septuagenarian that she would pull down the dilapidated house and build a better one for her.
The elderly woman couldn't hide her joy upon hearing the promise and she kept thanking the Christian cleric. She also prayed for her.
Before leaving, Pastor Olele gave the woman a white envelope stuffed with cash, saying it was a gift from one of the foundation's partners.
She fulfils her promise
The pastor fulfilled the promise she made to the widow as a beautiful house was built for the latter.
People danced and rejoiced during the housewarming.
Pastor Olele said God gave her the mandate to put smiles on the faces of widows and the less privileged.
In her words:
"I believe God gave me this mandate to put smile on the face of widows, the less privileged and to those who do not have a roof over their head to be a mother to them, and by the grace of God, this vision has become a mission and we are good to go."
