Brenda came home with a lot of edibles. Apple, orange,grape,strawberries, pizza, just name it. She also came home with jollof rice and fried chicken. Benita was amazed.
- come this girl, Benita said, what happened? Was there a party at your place of work?
- party keh, Brenda replied. It’s all yours dear. I need my baby to be healthy. Concentrate on the fruits. Just have little of the jollof rice and very little of the pizza.
awwww, Brenda. I don’t know how to thank you for all these. It’s too much. Thanks so much. My God will reward you. He shall supply your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. You will not lack helpers in Jesus name. As you have covered my shame and brought me in a wealthy place, God shall do same to you in Jesus name.

Amen dear. I have to go to see a colleague. We have some get together event to plan. Will be back late. I have my keys so lock the door when you want to sleep.
OK dear. May the Lord go with you.
Benita washed some apples and took them to the sitting room. She was watching a man of God preach and his message was quite interesting. She slept off on the cushion.
Brenda came home and saw Benita sleeping. She saw the apples on the table and thoughts she must have had some of it. She quickly signaled some men outside to come in. They came in and was carrying Benita out of the house into a car boot. Benita woke up and was shouting for help. They became confused. She was supposed to be unconscious. They were to close the boot when DR MALCOLM walked in.
- what’s going on here?
doctor Malcolm Brenda called smiling nervously. You’re welcome dear.
who are these men and what did they drop inside that boot?
emmmm, doc, its aaaaaaaa the old cushion In my bedroom.
-Hmm, I see. The old cushion has hands and leg? Who are you having in that boot?
- what’s the meaning of this Malcolm? How would you be intimidating me in my own house?
oh really? I want to see what’s in that boot. If you say it’s the old cushion in your bedroom, let me see it.
Brenda ordered the men to throw Malcolm out. They were struggling with Malcolm when some men stormed Brenda’s house. Brenda moved forward.
- yes, how may I help you?
we are men from the Area command, replied one of the men. We got a distressed call that a pregnant woman is being abducted by 2 men with a woman who is in charge of the operation and the owner of this house. Please can we see that boot.
officers, we can settle this.
my friend the boot. ( they cocked their guns. The boot was opened and Benita was inside SINGING. When the boot was opened doctor Malcolm rushed to help Benita out.
sweet, are you OK? Malcolm asked.
yes I’m fine.
Brenda was arrested along side the men. Brenda confessed she drugged all she bought so Benita could eat and deep sleep. She said she never wanted to kill Benita. She only wanted to take her far away from Malcolm.
Brenda went further to say she started having feelings for Malcolm but became jealous when she saw it was a pregnant women he desires. She got more jealous when she saw the kind of love Malcolm’s mum had for Benita. She vowed Benita will not enjoy it.
Malcolm wasn’t going to take chances. He lodged Benita in a suit and paid for one month. Her papers should be ready by then. Madam Beatrice joined her in the hotel.
- baby, she called Benny. No one will hurt you ever again. The battle is over. You have won.
THREE DAYS LATER!!!
Pastor Mrs ifunanya was rushed to doctor Malcolm’s hospital. She had fainted while cooking in the kitchen.
Test result shows she has malaria. The good news is she is also PREGNANT.
-I need to see Benita she said with tears in her in her eyes.
FOR GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE.
TO BE CONTINUED.
BENITA woke up and noticed a spot of blood on her night gown and on the bed. Madam Beatrice picked up her phone to call Malcolm. Benita stopped her.
- no mum. Calling Malcolm isn’t necessary. He would end up getting worried and would run to this place. It’s still very early and he had a hectic day.
-but baby, you are bleeding. We need to call Malcolm to come here, right now.
- no mum. We need to call Jesus. He was the one the woman with the issue of blood met and the fountain of her blood seized. Let us pray mum. ( she started worshiping)
Only you can do
What no man can do Jehovah
Only you are able, only are capable
Only you is reliable, only you
Yaweh, your name is yaweh,
The miracle working God
Your name is yaweh.
She began to pray.
King of glory, I worship you
The I am, I am I bless you
I’m grateful for your mercies Lord
You who made the barren bare, I bless you.
You who made a perforated womb carry twins
I bless you.
You who have brought me this far into my eighth month, you are worthy. Lord I honour you.
I lay my hands on my tummy and by the authority bestowed on me by my Lord Jesus Christ, I speak to this bleeding SEIZE now.
I degree, I shall carry my babies until the ninth month, I shall not be cut open. I shall bring forth by myself. In Jesus name.
After the prayers, madam Beatrice wouldn’t take chances. She still called Malcolm.
Benita was taken to the hospital for scan. Her baby was OK. She was told to have plenty of rest. Her babies are in good condition.
Benita came back to her lodge, 25 minutes later, pastor and pastor Mrs kelvin came accompanied by Malcolm.
Benita. Saw them and jumped for joy.
-mum, dad, she shouted. Welcome. I’m so happy to see you.
They both went on their knees crying. Benita stopped them.
- oh no no no, please don’t do that. I forgive you. From the depth of my heart.
oh my child replied pastor Mrs ifunanya, even our impatience, faithlessness, and unfaithfulness could not stop God from honouring his word through you. I am pregnant.
wooooooow, Benita shouted. Congratulations ma. Daddy congratulations sir. I have always known this God to be a truthful God. He does what he says he will do. I bless his name. Woow. Well mum, I also have good news. Malcolm and I are getting married after I put to bed, in the US actually.
(She pointed to madam beatrice) Malcolm’s mum. I mustn’t fail to testify that the Lord has blessed me with the best mother in-law ever.
Pastor and pastor Mrs kelvin were over joyed at Benita’s testimony.
A week to her 9th month, her papers are out. She will be traveling to the US. She would return after 6 months for her marriage proper with MALCOLM.
And off Benita flew to the US. One week later, on a Sunday, very early in the morning, she felt like she was pressed. She went into the toilet. As she tried sitting, her water broke.
- mum, she called out to madam Beatrice.
Benita was taken to the hospital. She brought forth. TWO BOUNCING BABY BOYS.
