‘Sir, this is the lady I informed you concerning on the telephone, she has been hitched for a year without a child. If you don’t mind compassionately help her as you helped me, sir.’ Iya ibeji begged prophet, David. ‘Have you disclosed to her the terms and conditions?’ ‘No sir, yet I realize she will participate in light of the fact that she needs a tyke urgently. I will pardon you now with her for further advising.’ Iya ibeji stood up and was disregarding me and prophet David in the room. I wound up apprehensive as she shut the entryway behind her. No petitions, no citing of the Bible, nothing religious by any stretch of the imagination.
‘Madam, would you like to convey your child or not?’ He rehashed same inquiry Iya ibeji asked me as we entered the inn. ‘Truly sir I need to convey my infant,’ I answered with dread all over me. ‘How would you need it, a male or female, twins or triplets?’ I didn’t know the conditions yet I rapidly said triplets. ‘That is a great madam, give me your hand.’ I extended my hands towards him and he took a gander at my palm like a man perusing something on it. Following two minutes he discharged my hand and returned to his seat. Triplet is N600,000 with three weeks of supplication outdoors. When you are prepared you can illuminate iya ibeji. ‘You may go,’ he said. I took my pack and left his office in rush to join Iya ibeji at the gathering. ‘How could it go?’ She asked me. ‘Mama, I thought you said we are coming to see a prophet? This man in there isn’t a prophet of God. I didn’t perceive any Bible on his table neither did he offer an expression of the petition. He charged me N600,000 for triplet with three weeks petition outdoors. Mama, I question in the event that I am intrigued, I am a Christian and I can’t do anything indecent on the grounds that I need youngsters. I will look out for God, his time is the best.’
Where on earth will I get N600,000 when I have not begun working? It’s absolutely impossible I can ask even N100,000 from my significant other without him researching what I need to utilize it for. On the off chance that I need to mislead him, it must be a very much arranged falsehood. Be that as it may, I am a Christian, I can’t pay N600,000 just to have a child.’
Be that as it may, to what extent will I hang tight for God? In my tears I advised God to substantiate himself inside a quarter of a year or else I will give prophet David’s proposition a preliminary. “On the off chance that you are God and you don’t need me to return to prophet David you should answer me inside a quarter of a year.” I gave God a final proposal. I turned into a constant liar as I needed to advise my better half numerous deceives conceal my visit to prophet David Evans. My better half should not realize I visited a prophet without his assent, it will be a major issue in the event that he knows. My considerations were isolated, would it be advisable for me to think about prophet David’s proposition or not?
One month came and passed nothing occurred. I made life extremely troublesome for my better half inside this time. His fasting way of life turned into a major test in the home. I ended up stressed for the fasting since he was getting more slender and he started to lose enthusiasm for the room. This turned into our real explanation behind squabble every day. This night you should break this fasting, my ovulation begins today and I can’t give you a chance to proceed with the quick and let my ovulation time pass. ‘Sweetheart, for what reason haven’t you imagined this time you have been watching your ovulation period? How about we manage the main driver, the Bible says this sort goeth not out but rather by fasting and petition, he cited. I wasn’t keen on the sacred text he’s citing, I needed to boost this time in light of the fact that the final offer I provided for God will slip by one month from now.
Iya ibeji did not enable me to breathe since our visit to prophet David. ‘You don’t need to sit tight for a long time like I held up when you have an answer for your concern at the tip of your finger. Every one of those you married around a similar time is largely conveying their children with the exception of you. Will you hold up until you get disappointed by your better half’s kin? You better make feed while the sun sparkles,’ Iya ibeji support me. Her words entered me even to my marrows, “every one of those you married around a similar time is generally conveying their children aside from you”. These words resounded in my ears occasionally.
The three months final offer I provided for God slipped by and I was as yet not pregnant. Clearly, God needed me to go for prophet David’s proposition. Be that as it may, why me? For what reason do I need to experience this? What’s my transgression before God? What is my reward for serving him every one of these years? For what reason will God relinquished me this much? Where are his guarantees? How would I raise N600,000? What will I accomplish for three weeks outdoors with prophet David, I know without a doubt it won’t be a petition. I picked my telephone and looked through iya ibeji’s number. ‘Great night iya ibeji……’
Do you think Maryam will acknowledge Prophet David’s proposition?
Part Ten is on the way.
‘I have decided mama, I need to see Prophet David however I have a few difficulties mama.’ ‘What are the difficulties? Try not to stress when we find in chapel tomorrow we will discussion of the difficulties. I am upbeat that you have at long last decided.’ She was so cheerful about my choice. My difficulties are the manner by which to raise N600,000 and how to do all these without my better half information.
My significant other was suspicious of my new association with iya ibeji in light of the fact that I have never revealed to him anything about her nor the point of our dialogs yet we were in every case together after everything about administrations. I needed to keep my better half holding up most occasions just to see iya ibeji. My better half couldn’t hold his tranquility any longer since the present exchange with Iya ibeji was simply excessively long. I realized he will demand to know the topic of our exchange today so I began arranging out lies before he defied me.
Much the same as I anticipated, my better half demanded I should disclose to him what I have been talking about with Iya ibeji. Not much, she has been empowering me and supplicating alongside us on the issue of my powerlessness to imagine. He wasn’t persuaded yet he needed to acknowledge my clarification like that. All during that time, I couldn’t rest as a result of the horrendous things iya ibeji recommended to me. How might I lay down with Chief Mike only for N600,000? Things I didn’t do while I was single, for what reason I’m doing it since I am hitched? This is unadulterated infidelity. Be that as it may, I required the cash to pay Prophet David. After all, it is only one gathering with Chief Mike. I will do it, God needs to excuse me. In the event that he could pardon Sally for every one of the barbarities she submitted is there any good reason why he won’t excuse me for only one-time infidelity? Boss Mike is kind for mentioning only a one-time meeting for N600,000. I decided to do it.
I had never observed Chief Mike until iya ibeji took me to his visitor house. He was an older man in his late 60s. He kept to his guarantee as he gave over a polythene sack containing N500 notes of N600,000 to me. We didn’t talk a lot as everything seemed like an arrangement. Iya ibeji was happy when I left his life with the dark polythene sack. ‘Congrats, you will before long be a mother,’ she held my hand and we left the visitor house together. In any case, I was extremely embarrassed in light of the fact that the majority of boss’ staff who took care of us realized what I desired. A wedded lady so far as that is concerned.
I had crossed the primary obstacle, I have the cash however how was I going to make it for the two weeks outdoors with prophet David without my better half’s learning? I kept the cash with Iya ibeji in light of the fact that there was no how I could keep it without my significant other finding it. Two weeks after I got the cash there was no thought of the sort of falsehood I could tell my significant other until he returned home that day with a letter for a three weeks course in Port Harcourt. I was so cheerful on the grounds that this came at the correct time. My significant other was bewildered with my response towards his course contrasted with when he was advanced.
The day my significant other left for Port Harcourt, I left for Abaji the next day. I made all installments and was given my room. It was in room 5. I was there in solitude until around 8 pm when a woman thumped at my entryway, ‘who is there? I inquired. ‘It’s me, Stella.’ I headed towards the entryway since it was a woman’s voice. We welcomed and she revealed to me the ruler Bishop will see me by 9:45 pm this evening and I ought to get set. I lost my tranquility after Stella disclosed to me Prophet David will see me by 9:45 pm. What precisely would he say he is coming to do? I couldn’t eat the nourishment they served me in view of dread. Be that as it may, I had achieved the final turning point. At precisely 9:45 pm, there was a thump at my entryway and I realized it must be Prophet David yet for obligingness purpose I asked, who is there? It was Stella who reacted, “the master Bishop”. I opened the entryway as Stella drove him in and disappeared. I couldn’t see his face since I realized I was in for something filthy. He sat on the bed as he opened his sack and drew out container water and extended it to me, “take a drink, this is the blood of my new pledge that was shed for you”. I realize I ordinarily hear this citation at whatever point our minister needs to serve us blessed fellowship in the chapel. I took the water and drank as he educated. The following thing, he pulled off his garments and was remaining before me distinct exposed.
