Lionel Peterson has been ill for a while now and Wilson Joel has been at the helm of things, trying to put money together for his upkeep by opening a gofundme account on his behalf.
About the visit, Wilson Joel said:
“Today, I went to see the Legendary #LionelPetersen ~ I thought I was armed with words of enrcouagement but left with encouragement
Something he said “In all of these, I have come to understand that my dependance is of God”. . . I broke into tears, made sure he didn’t notice & ran into the bathroom! I must have finished the toilet papers in there
He later kissed me on my forehead & blessed me. That just messed me up
Anyways, Lionel says Hello to y’all ~ God bless everyone who gave to him & everyone else
I’ll share something he did for me in January 2007 with y’all tomorrow [Please if you find yourself in SA & this GREAT MAN has affected your life in some way, please make out time to go visit him… Your presence is more valuable than anything else]”
