- John ad Florence searched high and low for a child and ended up spending KSh 300,000 in their quest
- The two stayed married for 21 years without any sign of the fruit of the womb
- Eventually, the two welcomed three healthy babies and thanked God for granting them his grace after their suffering
Just like the Biblical story of Hannah, Githurai couple Florence Makena and her husband John Gitobu feel like they have been touched by an angel after 21 years of crying.
The two who have stuck by each other through thick and thin had all the love in the world but no children to share it with.
But God smiled at them and granted them not one, not two but three children all at once after being childless for more than two decades.
“After 21 years, God has decided to bless me and shine his light on me. I became pregnant and delivered three children,” Florence told KBC.
But this does not mean the two never tried to expand their family before.
The first time Florence was with child, her little one was breached during delivery and the baby sadly lost its life.
The mum went through an operation and the lifeless baby was taken out.
Three more years passed and the couple did not see any signs of pregnancy. That is when the pair realized they needed to take drastic measures.
“We stayed for long and used a lot of money to a point we had nothing. We are in debt and owe over KSh 300,000,” John said.
Florence gave birth to three healthy boys and named one of them miracle to thank God for the fruit of the womb.
The Jua Cali artisan and his wife pleaded with Kenyans to help them with money and provisions to cater for their triple miracle.
The venue of the proposal appears to have been a park filled with people who were there for what seemed like an event, and this made the gentleman's experience more saddening.
In the video sighted by Briefly.co.za on the verified Facebook handle of OMGVoice, the lady is presented with a flower as well as the wedding ring by the man who is on his knees.
