Their mother, in dire need of fruit of the womb, had gone to the river to consult with spirits to give her a child. Then in her fifties, her request was eventually granted as she went on to deliver a set of female twins. Dedicating them to the river spirits, their parents gave them traditional names that reflected their relationship with the river. Both girls grew up worshipping the river spirits. They would find themselves in dreams eating strange food and having sex with men in the river. While Blessing proceeded to Europe to practice prostitution, Franca on her own part, became a herbalist of sort; she would prescribe traditional solutions to people’s problems much to the surprise of her own mother. It was clear that her ability to proffer solutions to people’s problems was borne out of her romance with familiar spirits which controlled and influenced her being.
While in Europe, Blessing continued to sustain the relationship they both had with the river spirits by sending money to her sister to ensure that all the rituals involved were observed accordingly. But in spite of all the goodies doled out to the river spirits, all the twin sisters could achieve were nothing short of sorrow, tears and disappointments. Keeping a stable relationship with men was not possible. Most of the men that came their ways would eventually dump them for no justifiable reasons. Blessing’s sojourn abroad was strewn in tales of despair. From Austria to Spain and from Spain to Finland, she could not lay her hands on anything tangible apart from the shame and disrepute that came with international prostitution. All efforts to put a stop to the illicit trade proved abortive.
When she discovered that there was no real and lasting gain in prostitution after twelve years in the trade, she succumbed to her boyfriend’s advice to return to Nigeria and undergo deliverance at The SCOAN. Returning home, Blessing met her twin sister stranded in marriage as her husband had deserted her. The spate of broken relationships, disappointments and failures stared them in the face and necessitated their action to proceed to the Arena of Liberty for deliverance. Franca was the first to be delivered during ministration of the Morning Water in the thick of a Sunday service; even though she had tried to run away, she was arrested by the power of God in the Morning Water and was delivered from the influence of the marine world. Blessing did not find it funny and insisted on getting her own deliverance by all means. She felt it was a wasted effort if she could come all the way from Europe and not receive her deliverance.
Availing herself the opportunity of another Sunday service, Blessing prepared her mind and looked forward, with every sense of urgency, to her deliverance. Fortunately for her, Evangelist Chris located her and ministered the Morning Water to her. Without any form of resistance, the spirit manifested and confessed all it had done to her life – how it had afflicted her with broken relationships, disappointments, the yoke of prostitution and failure. Now new persons in Christ Jesus, Blessing Isabu and her twin sister, thanked God for transforming their lives through deliverance and wiping away their horrible pasts. They advised people to desist from travelling to Europe for prostitution and urged parents to stop putting pressure on their children because of money.
