Rev. Uma Ukpai: “Everyone Mocked Me When My First Son Was Born Crippled.”
Reverend Uma Ukpai, the founder and head of the Uma Ukpai Evangelistic Association, has revealed how his first son was born with a handicap and was ridiculed by everyone. Reverend Dr. Uma Ukpai’s biography
The Nigerian preacher said that he was referred to as “Nigeria’s biggest stupid” by a nurse at the hospital where his child was delivered. Nevertheless, despite all the insults, he remained unfazed. Instead of giving up, he asked God for advice, and when he did what the Lord instructed, the kid was cured. He stated in his own words:
The day my wife gave birth to our second child, her nurse asked me; ‘your son, is he still crippled?’ I said ‘yes madam’. And she said ‘you are the biggest idiot in Nigeria. If God heals, why can’t He start from your house’.
I said, ‘madam, having turned your mouth into a basket mouth, he will start now.’ ‘Father what do YOU do?’ God said ‘move from song to song… raise a song unto me. I will take over your struggle from you’.
The youngster was anointed as I was singing, fell asleep, and when he awoke, he stated, “Daddy’s angels were here; they have strengthened my bones and my legs; I can walk, I can dance, and I can run.” And I pleaded with you to show it to me.
I don’t know what in your life has drawn ridicule, but starting today, God will change that ridicule into a miracle, your humiliation into fame, and your disgrace into uncommon grace!
