“Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; Thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness; To the end that my glory may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto Thee forever” Psalm 30:10-11.
MY name is Martins Ross Imienwanrin and my wife’s name is Bunmi Ross. We worship at Ilaro Parish of the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement, Ogun State. We wish to testify to God’s goodness and favour unto our family.
We got married in 2003 and were anxiously expecting that God would bless us with the fruit of the womb immediately. When our expectations were not met after the first year, we decided to see our family doctor. The doctor suggested some laboratory tests and the result showed that my wife’s womb was blocked; that had been the reason she had not been able to take in.
The doctor said the way forward was for her to undergo surgery to correct the anomaly. We rejected the idea of going through any surgical operation so we went to God in prayers for His divine intervention. We informed some of our pastors of the situation on ground and they prayed for us, assuring us of their continued prayers on our behalf.
A year later, we went to see another doctor and did another test, and it was still the same result that we got. I was advised to also go for a test myself and when I did, the result revealed that my seed was too weak to father a child.
But all these put together, did not move me neither did my faith in God diminish, because God had revealed to me that my wife would carry her own baby and that was what I held on to.
