A Nigerian couple are celebrating after welcoming triplets 18 years after they had their first child, a girl, who is an undergraduate.
According to The Guardian, The General Overseer of Grace Impacts Baptist Church, Berger, Bariga, Lagos, Rev. Dr. Eseme Unen and his wife, Pastor Esther dedicated their triplets, two boys and a girl to God at a special thanksgiving service last week.
The elated mother recalled how she prayed, fasted and sowed seed for the fruit of the womb, before God at His own appointed time answered the family.
She said there were low moments, when she had to grapple with the reality of failed expectations, but was thankful God saw them through such periods.
On his part, her husband thanked God for granting them the grace to be steadfast and not bow before strange altars, during their trying period.
“It got to a point it seemed we were giving up but we persevered and God answered us.”
Rev. Unen said they fortified themselves against external pressure, which helped them to be steadfast in the face of challenges.
