Miracles promised at massive Nigeria church

Hundreds of thousands crowd into Lagos church whose pastor has become one of richest people in country.

    In Nigeria, faith-healing Pentecostal Churches promising instant miracles are drawing in more worshippers than more traditional institutions.

    The Redeemed Christian Church of God prides itself on holding what it calls the largest gathering of Christians in the world. And its pastor, Enock Adeboye, has become one of the richest people in Nigeria.
