AFTER waiting on the Lord for the fruit of the womb for 14 years, a 50-year-old woman has been blessed with twins.

It has been celebration and joy in the home of Mrs Roseline Akinsola, a strong Christian who works with the Ekiti State Christian Pilgrims Board. She was full of praises to God for answering her prayers while answering questions from newsmen on the arrival of her bundles of joy in a report by

“I thank God for the new name he has given me. Before now, people called me “Iya Iyanu” meaning a woman without a child, but today, my name has changed to “Iya Ibeji” (mother of twins).”

“Many of my colleagues, friends and neighbours mocked and sidelined me, but because I stood firm on the words of God, He answered my prayers. I thank my husband, who, in spite of the troubles and problems from family members, friends, colleagues and neighbours, still believe in me and God.”

“He stood by me like a father in all ways and also believed in God all through the crisis. I also thank my siblings who stood by me in prayers for years. Let me thank God for all those who stood by me in prayers and encouraged me not to desist from serving God. These children are indeed signs that God never forgets His own people who diligently seek Him and believe in His words,” she said.

The proud father of the twins, Babatunde, also expressed gratitude to God for the children.

“We fasted, prayed and cried unto God for the fruits of the womb for years, but I am happy that today, God has finally fulfilled his promise to my family.”

I thank members of our church under the callings of Pastor and Mrs David Ajileye for their prayers and care for my family.”

Pastor Ajileye, the General Overseer of the Way of Life Bible Church, Ado-Ekiti, was full of thanks to God for His blessings in the lives of the couple.

“We have known the couple for over 15 years and they have been steadfast and faithful in serving God in spite of the challenges they were facing. For years, my wife and I have been praying to God to give the couple the fruit of the womb; I am so happy that the Lord has answered their prayers.”

“The church witnessed a similar miracle in 2013 when a couple, members of our church delivered a set of twins, a boy and a girl after 31 years of childlessness,” the pastor recalled.
