The birth of a newborn baby is a moment of pure love and joy for the whole family. The special bond a baby brings between husband and his wife cannot be overemphasized.
The story of a couple from Anambra, who had their first children – quadruplets, after 16 years of marriage brings this to the fore.
The story of the couple, Chika and Chinyere Nwokike, was shared by a Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Obum Martin, on his Facebook page.
The priest who was amazed by the goodness of God in the family stated that the couple had waited patiently on God in faith.
He added that the children came within 15 minutes of the woman going into labour and without any surgery.
His post reads,
“#Godisfaithful #16yearsPatienceWaiting #ItsQuadruplets. Great is God’s grace and mercy. When I look at this family and these beautiful gifts, I remember the Words of God in Habakkuk,”
“For still the vision awaits its time; it hastens to the end- it will not lie.If it seem slow, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay.
“Congratulations to my beloved friends Chika Nwokike and Chinyere Nwokike. Your faith and patience waiting on the Lord for 16years plus has been rewarded with these precious gifts with no surgery or stress…all given birth within less than 15 minutes. It’s amazing and can only be described as Grace~Work.
“As recorded in Psalms 5:11-12. But let all who take refuge in you rejoice, let them ever sing for joy; and do defend them, that those who love your name may exalt in you. For you bless the righteous, O LORD; you cover him with favor as with a shield. May God bless you with all the necessary resources to train and nurture these children”
