After waiting on the Lord for 21 years for children, Rev. Ukpai Nweke Sylvester of the Assemblies of God Church , Ebonyi and his wife Linda Ukpai Peace, finally gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl.
The couple from AGC Ifelemenu Ekpaomaka community in Ikwo local Government of Ebonyi state, got married on January 3, 1998 but never experienced the joy of parenthood until early this month when his wife Linda gave birth to their first kids, a set of twins.
Rev. Ukpai Nweke Sylvester took to his Facebook page to thank God For Answering their prayers and for wiping away their tears. He writes:
“The family of Rev. & Evang. Mrs. Ukpai Nweke Sylvester wishes to thank the Almighty God of gods, God, the prime changer of time, who makes a thousand year to collapse into a second for giving us a set of twins – a baby girl and a boy. He does His things at His appointed season. Twenty one years, (21) after our wedding on 3rd January, 1998, the God of Abraham, God of Mercy located us and wiped our tears, changed our prayer point and gave us double miracle. Join us to say, “Father to You oo, be all the Glory, to You oo, be all the Honour, to you Ancient of Days oo, be all the Glory and adoration forever more.” May the God of Hannah favour all my friends as He did to my family in Jesus’ Name, Amen!”
