Christian Reporters reports that Agnes Toluwa, who works as a social worker at Douala Cameroun was full of praises to God for answering her prayers. The mother of two girls, who weighed 3.2kg and 2.8kg, advised other couples in need of children not to lose hope.
Agnes, in an interview with Christian Reporters, expressed gratitude to God for giving her the children after several years. ” I thank God for the new name he has given to me; before, I was being called “barren woman”, but today, my name has changed to “Mummy 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 can still remember vividly a dream I had many years back. A beautiful woman that looks exactly like Virgin Mary appeared to me and gave me a child she was carrying , when I woke up, I thought the dream would come true so soon “I thank my husband, who inspite of the troubles and problems from family members, friends, colleagues and neighbors 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 father of the twins, Festus Fotso, also expressed gratitude to God for the children. “We fast, pray and cry 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 my presidium in our church for their prayers and care for my family. The Parish Priest of St Theresa Catholic Church, Bonapriso Fr. Enerst Adimanu praised God for the blessing. He advised the couple to teach and train the children in the ways of the lord.
