A Priest at Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion Asaba, Delta state, Reverend John Ifeanyi Ezeike, welcomed a set of triplets on Wednesday October 19th, 13 years after he got married.
The excited new dad shared these photos with his babies on Social media while thanking God for the safe arrival of his babies. He wrote;
“God has shown me great favour and mercy today the 19th day of October 2016. In 2003, God led me to marry my good and humble wife, as a young graduate of Uniben, serving my NYSC, but little did we know what will befall both of us.
For 13 good years we waited, we cried, we were hopeless and sometimes dejected, we had mental torture for we could not have a child in the marriage. But our faith in God kept us hoping that one day God will answer our prayer.
As human we got to a stage that we felt all hope of having babies is gone, even at this stage we maintained our close walk with God that even if He did not give us any child we were ready to go childless and still serve Him so long we make heaven at last. But then it was a tortuous moment.
God today in His in his faithfulness has decided to bless us with our own babies of triplet, two boys and a girl on this 19th day of October, 2016, after 13 years of waiting. Just thank this Great God for His goodness and mercy.
