couple, Mr. and Mrs. Jeremy Mazheandu has described Nigerians as very
hospitable and loving. The couple made the assertion at Asaba, the Delta State
capital recently in a chat with newsmen, during a visit to the family of Bishop
(Ambassador) Charles Ifeanyichukwu Okoh (JP) of Peace Foundation Church, Asaba.
Narrating how they got to know
the Okoh family and their subsequent visit to Nigeria, Mrs. Winnie Nakalumbi
Mazheandu said she met Rev (Mrs.) Victoria Okoh when she (Mrs.) Okoh visited
Zambia to attend the Conference of Women of Influence in Lusaka, the Zambian
She explained that it was the
second day of the programme, when she attended the conference that she was told
of a woman by name Victoria Okoh, from Nigeria who gave a powerful and
inspiring message. She said that from that moment she had a strong urge to meet
with the said woman preacher.
“I had to make effort to reach
this woman of God. When I eventually met her, she asked me what the problem
was, and I told her that I had been married for 9 years without any child. She
prayed and counseled me. She later asked me to come with my husband the
following day. The next day when we met her, we prayed together and she assured
us that God will grant us our request.” Mrs. Mazheandu narrated.
She said that before Rev. (Mrs.)
Okoh left Zambia, she asked her to observe ten days fasting and prayer, adding
that every morning and evening, for that ten days, Rev. (Mrs.) Okoh joined her
in prayer through phone. She said that eventually she had a baby girl, and
called to inform Rev. (Mrs.) Okoh, that they would bring the child to Nigeria
to see her. “We had to bring the baby to Nigeria to show mummy. That is why we
are in Nigeria, as a way of appreciating God and the servant he used,” she
Mrs. Mazheandu who said the girl
was given the name Tapeth Victoria Rivarache Mazheandu, maintained that her
encounter with Rev. (Mrs.) Okoh in Zambia in 2005 really affected her family
positively. She said her baby was born in June 2009, and four years after, the
family decided to come and say thank you to Rev. Okoh whom God used to change
their story for good.
On their experiences in Nigeria,
Mrs. Mazheandu says Nigerians are very friendly and hospitable. “We really
enjoy our stay. We appreciate papa and mama (Bishop and Rev. Mrs. Okoh) for
hosting us. May God continue to bless them and their family and ministry.
The Zambian lady advised women
looking for the fruit of the womb to always look up to God, as he alone has
solution to every problem.
On her part, Rev. (Mrs.)
Victoria Okoh said the Zambian couple are very humble and respectful, saying
that “they are really children of God. The woman is a woman of integrity. She
actually fulfilled her promise to visit Nigeria with her family. They have
really spent so much visiting us. We are grateful to them also. For her to
visit with her kids and husband shows they are truly appreciative of what God
did for them. I pray that God should continue to protect and enrich their lives
