TheCable also reports that she said he never showed any sign of illness or worry and that his main concern was about the prayer line they offered to Indians against the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Afterward, he came up to shower and I left him to have some time to prepare for service as worship had started. Few minutes later, he stepped out for ministration. While ministering, he spoke about a time to come and time to leave."
She said she waited for some minutes and thereafter decided to check on her husband, adding that she met him sitting on the chair like someone reflecting but unconscious.
