Mild Stroke! By God’s Grace He Saves Indeed

On the 6th of August 2019, I was hospitalized at St Luke’s. Doctors saw through MRI, a blot clot in my brain. Their diagnosis- a mild stroke! Somehow, numbness was felt in my right arm and my pinchers (pointer finger and thumb) could hardly move.

My wife was beside me all the time. She was weary and sad but I knew she prayed intimately. It was her comfort that Father God will just be right there to stay with us. She knew that all will end up in His glory. She is a breast cancer victim and she is surviving it. Oh, how noble she was by watching over her sick husband. All we had was to trust in God’s mercy as we have always done in the past. He has never forsaken us who sincerely beg for His help.

Another day of observation at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) was necessary for a possible deadly recurrence. Doctors advised a regular check of vital signs. For me it was a moment to call on Father God again. Coming to Him has become a recourse whenever we encountered an emergency situation like this.

My blood pressure began to normalize surprisingly! The attending doctor told me I was fortunate because nothing worse happened. Except for the slight numbness in my right arm the rest of my motor skills were functioning well. I saw it as another blessing instead! Now my right fingers are back to normal. Father God, once again, has made Himself felt in us.

Today there are two witnesses for you of God’s love and sincerity- my wife who has a breast caner (3rd stage b) and I who was hit by a mild stroke. These are only among many miracles we experience in our daily life. Obviously, He touches us to return to Him. He is indeed real!

He is waiting for you!

A Close Encounter With Nigerian Rebels In The Jungles of Nembe

It was in the year  2000….

Big and tall trees could be seen along the swamp while the rays of the sun break through the leaves. The place was so peaceful and quiet except for the sound of the wild birds. They were music to the ear! Air was so fresh! The deep forest was almost like a Paradise!

The speedboat which carried us from the Port Harcourt Base was zigzagging along the river. The trips were usually enjoyable and interesting. Life indeed had so much to offer! Our destination was to the Houseboats stationed along the swamp nearby the oil pipeline project in Nembe.

One evening we were unexpectedly visited by some rebels. Armed with long bladed weapons and guns they had demanded for some things they badly needed. It was a frightening “face-to-face” with them .What a life changing moment! There was nothing left to do but pray, deeply, and hoping to reach the Heavens instantly!

And God listened! The fear was soon gone. Lessons were learned. Life depended on its Maker!

Pray! Talk with Him heart-to-heart!

He has been waiting for you.

He loves.

He will always do.

We all are His children. Trust and strive to be happy!

It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.”
