Tears usually found their way into the eyes of Jane, my wife, any time she sees an abandoned baby, she would talk about it, share it and hope that someday she would be able to give such children a shelter of their own and eventually give them a daddy and a mummy to call their own.
As for me, the thought of ‘’serving orphans’’ was not just my kind of thing most especially abandoned babies, but, the teardrops of a man in the rain is not known to anybody else save the man alone.
I hungered to give helping hands.
One thing was certain, we both had a heart for the Lord and wanted to serve HIM in whatever capacity HE requires us to serve HIM. Jane never stopped talking about children and the need to give them a helping hand; little wonder she spends all her time in the company of these angels. After our marriage in Oct of 2002, she devoted more time to them, at the same time learning to be a wife, mother, friend and minister all at the same time.
God began to strengthen our marriage and take us through the path that will one day make us become masters at mending the lives of these pretty angels.
In July 24, 2006, through diligent study of His words and prayers, Jane and I found ourselves under the spiritual leadership of Pastor Oluranti Arowolo and Pastor Akin Olaniyan who were both the presiding Pastors of Glory Point Assembly of the Redeemed Christian Church of God respectively. The times were periods of the refreshing move of the Holy Spirit. It was during those times that the vision was birthed.
We started in 2010 a Sunday school house fellowship just mainly for children, the turnout was so amazing and brought a wide range of benefits to the children and, families within the community. This helps to boost academic performance, reduce risky behaviors, promote physical health, and provide a safe, structured environment for the children of the parents.
Through the next few years, we began putting pen to paper, dreaming, drawing, planning and working committedly to the dream. With the help of God and those who dared to believe God with us, ROYAL DIAMOND ORPHANAGE HOME was birthed on August 2013.
This marked the beginning of the never ending story.
