T love, the wife of my youth, my wife of inestimable value. For 19 years less 14 days we journeyed together. We labored, shared common visions and dreams. You were a pillar of support and encouragement. You believed in me and loved me with a passion. For so long you held on and believed Him for the miracle. Even in the midst of your pains your faith was so strong and you ministered to those who were ministering to your flesh. We had begun to see the light at the end of the very dark tunnel. Yet it pleased the Master to take you swiftly as with a chariot.
I will ever miss your fellowship, encouragement and corrections. Your sudden departure has left me so emotional. I take solace that you made it and already have joined in the everlasting worship in His presence. The Master had showed you in a dream what was about to happen but we misinterpreted it.
GOOD NIGHT (Your Chigo is waiting and praying for you to come back) and Fare thee well till we part on the resurrection morning to part no more.
Pastor Fabian Aleke, Husband
Dr Horatius Bonar’s (1808-1889) classic song titled, ONLY REMEMBERED resonates whenever we lose a dear one to the chilling hands of death.
When the hands of death have taken their toll on us, the one thing that lingers in the memory of those we leave behind is our good works.
Our dear sister, mother and Pastor, Titi Aleke will be missed and remembered for her different roles and works both at her home, the Church and workplace.
When she joined He’s Alive Chapel, she played her role as a member of the choir and children’s teacher.
As a single lady, she comported herself decently before she got married to Fabian,
As a housewife, she was a true, lovely wife and mother who took care of her immediate family. Not all house wives are cheerful at receiving uninvited guests, but Titi was an exception. She always welcomed guests to her home warmly and with lots of smiles.
She was a mother to the Badore Church and the entire HAC family.
She was a lover of children. She loved the youths, her annual summer holiday programme where she invited me to speak yearly revealed her passion for the youths. The youths will really miss her. No doubt her students at King’s College, LAGOS will miss her too.
She ran the race well, and has handed us the baton, she has left the track for us to continue in the relay race. We shall all miss our sister, Titi. Adieu, our beloved sister.
Oluyide and Austen C. Ukachi, Senior Pastors, HAC
ANOTHER SAINT HAS GONE HOME! WHY THIS IS SO PAINFUL IS THE SUFFERING YOU HAD TO GO THROUGH BEFORE YOU LEFT US! We will surely miss your noble smiles, your elegant poise and carriage, which you had with so much grace. Your wealth of wisdom, transparent, deep and fervent love for the Master, your undeniable faith, exemplary hospitality, proven character and integrity will be truly missed. You were indeed a strong pillar to your husband and the church. Certainly he and your children will miss you so much. Till that Resurrection morning when we shall meet again to part no more. Adieu! Take your rest in the bosom of Abraham, Amen!
Pastor Jerry Malchus, Resident Pastor, HAC Karu, F.C.T
How do I start to write about a woman that has influenced so much? Pastor Titi Aleke (Aunty Ti) started out being a quiet source of inspiration to me in her days as one of the teacher’s at the then HAC youth church. She always had this tender way of making you see things differently. Growing up as a young man I came to admire her passion and commitment to the younger generation a lot. At home, Aunty Ti, showed so much care and attention for all that came in contact with her in such a way that she became a model for a wife and mother to me.
I will never forget the first time Aunty Ti spoke to me about her intention to have me minister at the Vacation Bible School (Teens & Twenties) she organized for teenagers. Being a young person myself I felt really honoured that someone that watched me grow could ask me to share my experience with other youths but felt so inadequate knowing that one of my teacher’s would be present. Yet she encouraged me, and kept giving me the needed support. This became the beginning of a very outstanding partnership, as Aunty Ti shared her vision for these young people with me and seeing the testimonies that came out as a result of these meetings I could not but be a part of this move God birthed through His daughter.
I always remember Aunt Ti telling me “Godwin I need you to take up this person and make sure you guide them well”. Even while the battle for her health raged on she never stopped planning and working towards the betterment of the youths. Aunt Ti, from her sick bed planned the last Teens & Twenties meeting, calling, mailing and making sure things were in place for the success of the program, she even came out some days to the program despite her health condition. I recall how two days before your trip for treatment how you kept telling me about your plans for the young ladies that have been a part of the Teens & Twenties meeting and how you wanted me to find a way to reach out to the young men more.
Aunt Ti, we all will miss your love, care, commitment, sacrifice, understanding, listening ears, corrections, commendations, selflessness, smile, and encouragement. You believed in every young person’s ability to be outstanding in life and showed it in the most unique way I have ever known. Thank you for obeying God when you started the VBS (now Teens & Twenties). You graced us with the beauty of your personality and poured yourself out as a drink for all who came in contact with you. We rest in the assurance that you have gone to a better place and look forward to that day in glory when we will meet again.
We are determined to continue working with these young people.
Rest in God’s Love.
