Two weeks ago, Rev. Dr. Eseme Unem and his beautiful wife, Pastor Esther, welcomed 3 bouncing babies after waiting for 18 years since first birth.
The couple, have over the weekend, dedicated their newborn triplets – a boy and two girls to God at a special thanksgiving service with family, friends and church members in attendance.
According to a feature story published by The Guardian, the couple had waited 18 years after the birth of their first child, a girl, who is currently a university undergraduate, before God blessed the family with these bundles of joy.
Speaking to The Guardian about her experience, the excited 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 face the reality of failed expectations, but was thankful God never let her down in such moments.
Speaking further, she revealed other challenges she faced during the pregnancy, and how she spent six months in the hospital receiving treatment before the delivery.
Esther advised expectant couples to be patient, persevering and focus on God and shun the temptation to run to different churches looking for solution.
The husband thanked God for giving them the grace to keep believing and not bow before unholy altars during their trying times.
In his words he said:
“It got to a point it seemed we were giving up. But we persevered and God answered us.” The General Overseer said they fortified themselves against external pressure, which helped them to be steadfast in the face of challenges.
