After 17 years of marriage and losing pregnancy of triplets, a pastor and his wife has welcomed their first child to the world.
Very Reverend Ofonime Udoh, the pastor in charge of the Presbyterian church of Nigeria, Oka Oba in Efun Ilaje area of Lagos and his wife has welcomed their first child after a long wait for 17 years and trusting God.
After a decade of their marriage, they decided to seek medical explanations to ascertain their physiological make-up and one after the other, they took turns to undergo every recommended test to unravel the mystery behind their unusual situation. Some of the recommendations demanded adjustments to their diets. Yet, nothing changed.While every probing procedure returned a clean bill of health for both. They had all that was needed to be productive.
In 2014, God answered their prayers and the wife conceived of a set of triplets but sadly, few days into her final trimester, she lost the pregnancy in mysterious circumstances. It took months for them to erase from their heart the pain of the tragic loss.
She however had some challenges during this pregnancy, including bleeding but the pregnancy stayed intact till full term and on June 27 this year, Udoh and his wife welcomed their baby boy into the world.
