Rev Yinka Badejo also coordinated a prayer and counseling ministry known as Dew of Heaven.

She founded the ministry to assist women, through prayer and counseling, that are looking for the fruit of the womb as well as mature ladies, who desire to marry.

She once said in an interview that she would love to be remembered for the compassion she had for the barren, which she showed through the Dew of Heaven Ministry.
