After having my first son in 1991, I had series of miscarriages, about four times. I was tired and the doctors also became tired of me. I didn’t know what to do. I took in again and about the third month, I started bleeding again. I went back to the doctor and at the end of the day, he said ‘ woman, there is nothing I can do about it. I have to evacuate you on monday.’ I went home confused.
I had been a believer for many years, but now I started asking myself, ‘ Am I not serving a living God? Is there no Elijah in this our time?’ And suddenlly, I remembered Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel.
I became worried and told my husband that I must get to Winners’ Chapel. I was convinced that by merely seeing the man of God, I would be okay. I didn’t know anything about the Breakthrough Night (the Winners’ monthly all night service), but on February 20 1997, my husband and I decided to look for the church.
When we got to the church, I was shocked by the crowd I saw. It turned out that the breakthrough night was holding. I said to myself, ‘Today is my day.’ During the service, I was bleeding profusely, and had to make frequent trips to the toilet to clean up. This bleeding was as a result of fibroid I had for 10 years.
That night, the Bishop said that day was the first time people would be anointed seven times. I knew it was really my night. As the anointing oil was passed round, instead of anointing my head, I rubbed it on my tummy. After the sixth time,I had to go to the toilet, because it seemed as if something was upsetting my tummy. There, I noticed the bleeding had ceased. I was shocked!
I was supposed to see the doctor the following Monday, but I decided not to keep the appointment, because I wanted to disprove him. When I got to him on Friday, he was furious with me for not coming for the evacuation on Monday. I told him to scan me again. He initially refused, but later agreed. While he was doing this, I heard him say, ‘ What is happening? There is something like a baby in your womb!’ He also could not find the fibroid, praise God, I had my baby boy in 1997!.
