Renowned gospel preacher, Paul David Yonggi Cho goes home at 85

A renowned South Korean Pastor, Dr David Yonggi Cho previously known as Paul Yonggi Cho is said to have passed away at the age of 85. He was reported to have died in the early hours of today, September 14, 2021.

The man of God reportedly died of brain haemorrhage which he was said to have been battling with since last year.

David Yonggi Cho was a South Korean Christian minister with his mother-in-law Choi Ja-shil and was a cofounder of the Yoido Full Gospel Church, the world's largest congregation, with a claimed membership of 830,000.

He was born 14 February 1936 and raised as a Buddhist until he met Christ and got converted at age 17 after a little girl told him about the Jesus Christ.

His wife, Sung-Hye Kim had also died in February this year.

Founder and senior pastor of City Harvest Church, Kong Hee confirmed the passing of Dr David Yonggi Cho through a post he made on his official Facebook page.

Kong Hee was quoted to have said ''at 7:13 am this morning, my pastor and spiritual father, Dr David Yonggi Cho (1936-2021), just went home to the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. I love you, Dr Cho.

Reacting to Paul’s death, Revivalist, Chad Macdonald took to his official Facebook page to pen down his heart-tribute to the late gospel preacher describing him as a powerful Man Of God who was a great gift to the body of Christ

The Revivalist wrote "I have just received word that Dr David Yonggi Cho stepped into his eternal reward today and is now in the presence of The Lord. What a powerful Man of God he was, truly an apostle of the Lord.

It was he who first taught me how to pray and I will forever be grateful for that revelation. When I first stepped into the sanctuary of Yoido Full Gospel Church the tangible glory of God was overwhelming. There was an unmistakable roar that permeated the atmosphere as tens of thousands in unison prayed in the Holy Ghost".
