The problem of barrenness brought Mr and Mrs Akpobor Udu to The SCOAN. At the time, Mr Akpobor also had the problem of a permanent erection which he had just woken up with one day which caused extreme discomfort. When they came to the church, they had the privilege of going to the prayer line. At the prayer line, Prophet T.B. Joshua introduced the Morning Water as a medium even more powerful than himself. He min…istered the Morning Water to them and prayed for them in the name of Jesus Christ.
After the prayer and deliverance, they met as husband and wife and Mrs Udu became pregnant to the glory of God. However, the devil had not stopped – in the ninth month of her pregnancy, a scan revealed that she had a breech presentation and that the umbilical cord was wrapped around the neck of her baby. News that would have scared any other couple hardly even startled the Udu’s who rather came together to minister the Morning Water over themselves and decree the goodness of God over their lives, that there would be no operation or problem. According to their faith, Mrs Udu delivered a beautiful healthy baby girl after ministering the Morning Water to the surprise of the medical staff at the hospital who had been preparing for the inevitable operation that should have been needed.
Reflecting on his past, Mr Akpobor admitted that he was not an innocent victim but had played a role in his affliction. He said that he had lived a life of alcoholism, smoking and womanizing in clubs and hotels, often returning home in the early hours of the morning. Although, he added that at that time, he was not attending church and was not a Christian. His wife faithfully went every Sunday to the house of God but he would lounge about at home. However, when the permanent erection came with the terrible pain and discomfort, it moved him to examine his life. He came to realization that he needed God and agreed with his wife to visit The SCOAN for deliverance and redemption.
Present with their daughter, the happy family advised the world to trust in the goodness of God and with glad smiles, they announced the name of their daughter as Divine Emmanuella Akpobor.
