    Nigerian 107-year old pastor weds 30-year old with strength from God
    Sun Jan 7, 11:11 AM ET

    LAGOS (AFP) - Samuel Akinbode Sadela, Nigeria's oldest preacher at 107, said he derived his strength from God after marrying a 30-year woman.

    "The Lord is my strength. I am very strong and energetic," they quoted him as saying after the wedding in Lagos.

    Sadela, founder of Gospel Apostolic Church, has been on the pulpit for 75 years.

    Sadela first got married in 1934, and the marriage lasted for 21 years, but none of the couple's seven children lived beyond their infancy.

    A second marriage, consummated in 1965, was blessed with four children, but only two survived. His second wife died in 2001.

    And then he met the new woman of his life, 77 years his junior.

    The marriage with Christiana Sadela is "a fulfilment of the scripture and worthy of thanksgiving and appreciation to God", his church said in a statement.

    "Nothing is impossible for God," it said.

    But that's from two years ago. I wonder how much he's aged in looks since then.

    which reminds me of the old joke about a 90-year-old guy preparing to marry a 20-year-old woman. The guy's doctor advises him against in, saying that death could leave one of them alon and broken-hearted. The 90-year-old guy says, "Well, if it does I'll just have to find a new wife."

    how can the story not mention whether the pastor is rich? i assume he's not but i think that's the first question anyone would have to ask.

    He credits God. I'm guessing viagra.

    At least he'll die with a smile.

    That's a bad headline, unless the bride has the "strength from God"
