It was glory, glory that filled the air at St Monica's Anglican Church, Enugu-Ukwu , Njikoka Local Government Area, Anambra State, when Rev and Mrs K.E.N/Gloria Kings Chukwukamma, thanked God for granting them noble gifts of twins Somtochukwu and Somkenechukwu, December 24, 2017.
God indeed made all things in the family of His servant who waited for 13 years after their first baby, Favour Chinazom Chukwukamma, now in SSS1. Rev KEN Kings is the parish priest at St Monica's and a federal civil servant with NOA Anambra State, precisely Njikoka, while the wife is a secondary school teacher with Agulu Awka Community Secondary School, Awka.
The Thanksgiving Service was attended by the high and low in society, including the diocesan bishop, Rt Revd Chibuzo Ibezim and his wife, Martha; the Deputy Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Nkem Okeke, who was represented by his wife; the clergy, among other dignitaries.
Dedicating the twin babies, a boy and a girl, Bishop Ibezim said the children were gifts from God to his committed servant of God, Rev and Mrs Chukwukamma.
In his sermon, Rev Canon Gilbert Nwankwo, Chaplain Queens' College, Awka, said Rev Kingsley and wife, Gloria, had shown that patience with God pays.
For his part, Rev K.E.N Kings Chukwukamma who could not hide his joy, in his vote of thanks, said the gift of twins had strengthened his faith in God, adding that there was joy in serving God.
Overwhelmed with joy, the mother of the twins, Mrs Gloria Chukwukamma, thanked God for His mercy upon them when all hope was lost by men of little faith and every human effort failed.
Favour, their daughter, said she was overjoyed by the arrival of her twin brother and sister after several expectations to have a brother and a sister.
For Mr Bennet Ugoagu, member of Awka Diocesan Media, God's time came after 13 years and all side talks ended to the glory of God.
As well, Mrs Kanayochukwu Ebele, said God had shown that He alone determined the fate of men, even as she expressed joy that her support to Mrs Gloria Chukwukamma all along, was not in vain until God showed He was God.
