A young girl named Chinwendu was brought back to life after she passed on during Sunday service at the Anglican chapel of Light, FUTO also known as A.C.O.L. This incident happened on the 26th of June being the last Sunday in the month of June. The miracle was thought to be a rumour and different people where out with different versions of what happened. But the miracle has been ascertained to be true as series of interviews were carried out with the girl (Chinwendu) and the chaplain of Anglican chapel of light, Ven. Dr. Kelechi okere.
The interview was carried out by the ICT Wing of the church, led by the coordinator, Victor and was also edited by the ICT coordinator.
If you’re still wandering about what really happened and would like to know about every bit of the miracle, I urge you to worry no more because the whole incident has been detailed for you below. Any version contrary to the one below here is false and you are strongly advised to ignore them.
ICT COORDINATOR: What’s your name?
Chinwendu: My name is Chinwendu [surname withheld]
ICT COORDINATOR: What’s your department and level?
Chinwendu: Public Health, 200 level
ICT COORDINATOR: Where do you live?
Chinwendu: Hostel D
ICT COORDINATOR: Where are you from?
Chinwendu: I’m from Delta state, precisely Delta Igbo
ICT COORDINATOR: How old are you?
Chinwendu: I am 20 years
ICT COORDINATOR: Can you narrate to us what happened?
Chinwendu: I can’t really tell, but what I could remember was that I came early to church that fateful day and the Sunday school was going on so I joined them, then after the Sunday school, the main church service started. I also remembered the church singing the psalms number 77. That’s all I can remember
ICT COORDINATOR: So you mean you can’t remember what happened to you?
Chinwendu: I can’t remember anything. (NARRATION CONTINUES..) I found myself at the altar. I was only hearing sounds like the chaplain’s voice but I wasn’t sure because I was unconscious. I just don’t know what really happened, so if you ask me, I will say I don’t know what happened.
ICT COORDINATOR: Before the incident occurred, were you feeling somehow like feeling dizzy?
Chinwendu: No! I wasn’t feeling dizzy
ICT COORDINATOR: So you just slumped?
Chinwendu: Yes, I just slumped. That’s all I know
ICT COORDINATOR: From your own perspective, will you actually say you fainted or what really happened?
Chinwendu: I wouldn’t know because I haven’t had this kind of experience before.
ICT COORDINATOR: But I thought the chaplain said you’ve experienced such thing before somewhere else, was that similar to this?
Chinwendu: Not really, that one was different because I didn’t eat, so I was feeling somehow and my eyes were turning me but in this case, I was alright.
ICT COORDINATOR: Okay, so right now you don’t know the cause of what happened and you believe it’s not hunger?
Chinwendu: I believe it’s not hunger because after the incident when I came alive, I was taken to the hospital for check-up and the doctor confirmed that nothing was wrong with me. I can’t really tell what was wrong with me.
ICT COORDINATOR: Now that you are back and alright, what do you have to say?
Chinwendu: I really thank God for my life because God has been so faithful to me. Assuming I was still dead, I wouldn’t have been here right now and my enemies would have been laughing at me.
ICT COORDINATOR: Are your parents aware of this incident?
Chinwendu: Yes, I told them.
ICT COORDINATOR: What was their reaction?
Chinwendu: They rejoiced with me in the Lord. Assuming I died and my body was taken to them, how do you think they would have felt? So they thanked God and rejoiced with me
ICT COORDINATOR: Thank you very much for your time.
I’m sure you have been convinced how true the miracle was after the above interview with Chinwendu. We also approached the Chaplain to hear what he had to say about the incident and here was what he said:
Praise the lord, hallelujah. My name is Ven. Dr Kelechi Okere, by divine grace and permission; I am the chaplain of the Anglican chapel of light at federal university of technology, Owerri.
It is said that a thing of joy is a thing of beauty and thanksgiving to God forever, we experienced God’s grace in our chaplaincy that is really good to be shared amongst people of God.
On Sunday, June 26th, the last Sunday in the month of June, according to the church calendar, it was the 5th Sunday after trinity. We normally start our services by 9 `O’clock, so also that Sunday we started our service by 9 O’clock with the normal church procession and the rest. It was around some minutes to 10 in the morning when we were chanting the Psalms number 77. In the process of chanting the psalm, we were at the 6th or 7th verse of the psalm, I noticed that a student in the congregation fell down, and it looked as if she slumped. Her name is Chinwendu(which she told me after the incident), as soon as I saw the lady slumped, what came into my mind was that she was an epileptic patient. And for me I don’t know how to manage epileptic patient because I’ve not handled an epileptic patient before. But I had to move down to her by faith believing that God would tell me what to do. When I got to where she was on the floor, I noticed that there was no life in her. Then I started shouting Jesus! Jesus!! Jesus!!! with my mouth fixed on her ear, as I continued shouting Jesus for so many times and at that point, I remembered what Elijah did, I wanted to speak the word of life into her mouth. I tried opening her mouth but I noticed that her teeth were locked up and I couldn’t feel her pulse again and I noticed that she was cold, and immediately, I opened her eyes and I couldn’t see the eyeballs, it was only the white eyes. My God! It dawned on me that the girl was gone. But the spirit of God in me said ‘she cannot go to the mortuary from the sanctuary’. Because in the church, we’ve always prayed against premature death. It was then I beckoned on the students and some of the students and stewards assisted in carrying her to the altar. Brethren I want to tell you that what we carried to the altar was a lifeless body. We laid her on the step leading to the altar and we started praying. I had to ask the church to stop chanting the psalm and also asked everybody to come to the altar and we started praying. It was like crazy. I’ve not seen such a miracle before in my life, we busted out in prayers. For me, I didn’t know when I removed my hood, preaching scarf and surplice and threw them away in the altar, I noticed that during the prayers, God came down in a different manner as we all prayed and cried aloud unto God. In the cause of the prayers, I was monitoring her, but she was just there lifeless. At a point, in the cause of our prayers, sisters and brothers I want you to know that this girl opened her eyes and she came back to life. That was a great miracle I’ve never seen before in my life and ministry.
I believe in miracles because Jesus said that miracle shall follow us. It really followed my ministry.
Today I want to tell you that it’s a testimony in the Anglican chapel of light in FUTO. We give God praise for He did not allow His name to be put to shame. It was a challenge to Christianity and God made a name for Himself and we worship His name.
On this note may I encourage all believers, if you don’t pray, you’ll become a prey to Satan. You need to pray. Whatever that is your problem, if God could do that in our own generation, in my ministry, I want you to know that God will do all things you desire, He will strengthen us only if we believe in Him and pray with hands full of thanksgiving, He will deliver us. You Are Lifted.
Hmmm… What a great God we serve. I pray that as many as those reading this post right now, that they and their family member shall never experience untimely death of any kind in Jesus Mighty Name we pray. AMEN!!
