A couple who had been described as barren by friends and family members has been blessed with a child after seven years of waiting for the fruit of womb.
Mr and Mrs Amaechi got married in March 2011.
Resident at 23, Igbehinadun Street, Onibeji, Ayobo, Lagos, the couple joined nearby Appealing Grace Assembly (APGA) at Onikanga, Ayobo, not only because of their peculiar situation but also for the salvation of their souls.
The happy mother was full of gratitude to God for blessing her with a baby boy while giving her testimony during a special programme organised by APGA.
“I was frustrated with life because I heard a lot of things that weren’t good for a woman to hear from people around her. Even my family members were not happy with me so much so that it led to me walking out on my father and my mother. They had invited me to the family house and asked me to leave my husband. With pain in my heart after the episode, I cried to God and devoted my time to Him”, she narrated.
Mrs Amaechi also talked about things that were said to the husband.
Her words, “My husband’s friends asked him to go out to check out his fertility with another woman to be certain that he was not the one that had problem. I thank God and my husband for the support and love they gave me. My husband was a rock to me during that difficult period of my life”.
Mr Ameachi, on his part, stated that he was grateful to God for blessing them with the child.
“I thank God for giving me a good wife, a wife that I always want to be with and spend time with. Though I already had a child and I am old, my wife didn’t treat me anyhow. She accepted me the way I am and respects me as the head of the house”. He also specially appreciated the Senior Pastor of APGA, Pastor Akinwale Damilare, for his support to him and his wife while they were looking for the fruit of the womb.
“I really thank my pastor for the support and advice given to me and also standing as an example of faith because he also went through the same thing which lasted eleven years before he was blessed with a girl. So I strongly believed that God could do the same miracle for me and my wife and He did it”.
