The pastor of the King's Palace Parish, a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in Katy, Texas, Tunde Badru and his wife have shared what they went through before welcoming their first child after 23 years of waiting.
The couple, who shared their story in an interview published on Kemi Filani News, said they performed eight IVFs which turned out unsuccessful.
Pastor Tunde said: "All of the times, everything looked very well. Each time they did the transfer, they told us 'wow! This is very clean, embryo. It is grade A, everything is fine.' Then we waited 14 days, and sometimes before the 14th day, “Awwh” we’ve seen the period."

The man of God said he had medical challenges on sperm count while his wife also had medical challenges on fibroid.
Pastor Tunde's wife identified as Pastor Sade said she went through fibroid operations.
She said: "That I had to go through 3 fibroid operations. The 4th one, that was about 2 or 3 years ago, I told the doctor “whatever is ‘gonna’ be, is ‘gonna’ be; I am never going to go under any surgical operation.” If God is going to do it, let Him do it."
After 23 years of trying to conceive and believing in God, the couple finally conceived and welcomed their first child, a son named Isaac.

In another interesting report, a footage of a bridge commissioned by Ursula Owusu, just four months ago, has surfaced it was washed away by overrunning water and recorded live on camera.
On January 11, 2020, news broke that the honourable Minister of Communications and Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West Constituency had constructed a floating bridge over Chemu Lagoon.
It was reported that the special bridge was made with a floating ability to ensure that any time the lagoon overflowed its banks the bridge automatically rose or floated and returned to its current position when the floods subsided.
