‘I REMEMBER YOU GOT IN PRAYERS AND FASTING FOR THE SAME THING AND ON THE THIRD DAY OF PRAYING THE ACCIDENT HAPPENED. MY LOVE, I HAD NOT SEEN IT COMING. I WAS CONFIDENT THAT GOD WOULD HEAL YOU AND BRING YOU BACK TO ME. I REMEMBER ON GOOD FRIDAY WHEN I SAW YOU AT THE HOSPITAL AND YOU COULDN’T TALK, I GOT WORRIED BUT STILL WAS HOLDING UNTO FAITH. I GOT HOME THAT NIGHT AND MADE THIS PRAYER I SAID, “GOD PLEASE HEAL MY HUSBAND AS YOU RESURRECT ON SUNDAY PLEASE LET THE HOSPITAL BED NOT CONTAIN HIM GIVE HIM A NEW SKIN, NEW KIDNEYS AND HEAL HIM TO EVERY PART OF HIS BODY”. I SAW YOU THE NEXT DAY WHICH WAS A SATURDAY AND LEFT AROUND 4 PM,’ RUTH RECOUNTED.

She continued,

AT AROUND 8:30PM THAT NIGHT I FELT A STRANGE COLDNESS IN MY BODY ALL OF A SUDDEN. I WAS AT MY UNCLE’S PLACE. THEY COVERED ME AND I LAY ON A SEAT FOR ABOUT 10 MINS. I THOUGHT I WAS EXHAUSTED FROM RUNNING UP AND DOWN NOW I KNOW YOU WERE SAYING GOODBYE. I WENT ON TO SLEEP AND THE FOLLOWING MORNING I RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE HOSPITAL AT AROUND 6AM THAT I WAS NEEDED THERE. I’L BE HONEST WITH YOU, I KNEW RIGHT THEN THAT YOU HAD GONE TO BE WITH THE LORD. I GOT TO THE HOSPITAL AND IT WAS CONFIRMED YOU WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD ON APRIL 11 AT 8:30 PM.

Adding,

B, IT HURTS SO MUCH. IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE YOU DIED WHILE GROWING. AT FIRST, I THOUGHT GOD WAS SO INFARE BUT LATER ON, I REMEMBERED THE PRAYER I MADE TO GOD TO HEAL YOU COMPLETELY TO TAKE AWAY THE PAIN AND TO RESSURECT WITH YOU, I DIDN’T MEAN IT THAT WAY. DID I PRAY THE WRONG PRAYER? I’LL NEVER KNOW. ALL I KNOW IS I JUST WANTED TO HAVE YOU BACK HOME HEALED. GOD HAS ANSWERED MY PRAYER. IT MAY NOT BE THE ANSWER I EXPECTED OR WANTED BUT ITS WHAT I ASKED FOR. YOU ARE NO LONGER IN PAIN AND NEVER EVER WILL YOU BE. I KNOW YOU’RE HAPPY WHEREVER YOU ARE. EVEN IF I ASKED YOU TO COME BACK TO ME YOU WOULDN’T WANT TO. I MEAN WHO WANTS TO COME BACK TO A WORLD OF SO MUCH PAIN, A WORLD OF WEARING MASKS COZ OF CORONA.

AS HARD AS IT HAS BEEN MY LOVE, I HAVE ACCEPTED GOD’S WILL, IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE NOW BUT I’M CERTAIN IT WILL SOMEDAY. HE’S NOT A WICKED GOD. BY THE GRACE OF GOD I’LL CONTINUE WITH THE MINISTRY WE HAD STARTED COZ I KNOW YOU’LL WANT ME TO.
