Twenty one years, (21) after our wedding in 3rd January, 1998,God of Abraham, God of Mercy located us and wiped our tears, changed our prayer point and gave us double miracle . Join us to say, "Father to You oo, and be all the Glory, to You oo, be all the Honour, to you Ancient of Days oo, be all the Glory and adoration forever more.''
