God is faithful - 'How I got my miracle babies' - Chioma Ajunwa
Sunday Express publisher Mike Awoyinfa with Chioma and her triplets
'I was married for many years and when the child was not forthcoming, I
was worried all the time, because I know that if you don't have a child,
your marriage will not be that strong. In Igboland there's a saying
that, 'a woman that does not have a child, her seat is kept outside.
That was bothering me, though as a believer I wasn't that desperate over
it. I wouldn't have a devilish child. I strongly believed in God that
at His appointed time, it will come because I know he never fails. I did
not ever entertain the thought that I could be barren. As a pastor, my
husband was always consoling me, telling me to leave everything to God.
In my mind I said 'I hear. Tomorrow you will go and marry another person, thank you very much!'
When I was pregnant I asked God for so many things; the number one
thing was that if this should become a reality, I promised God I will
return the children to Him and I will give a giant offering. To God be
the Glory, it came to pass. My babies are two boys and a girl; Joshua,
Caleb and Rose.' Chioma Ajunwa Opara to Sunday Express
