Comfort interview with Sam Amaga Foundation
DR. SAM AMAGA: Here again, we have young girls we want to introduce to you and we want you to listen to them after this short
teaching. They are Nigerian children denied of a future as they lost their father at a tender age. The scripture says something here in the book of Psalm 10: 17-18. LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear: 17 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no
more oppress. Who is the humble He is talking about? The one who is standing by the fatherless who have heard, He said, you have heard the desire of the humble. I know you have desire you want to present to God, the prayers you pray every
day you want God to bring breakthrough into your family, to heal your body and to bless your life. The bible say’s God hears that cry, because it is the cry of the humble. But then the bible say’s we must hear the cry of the fatherless.
When we begin to hear the cry of the fatherless, God begins to hear our cry. When we begin to become Gods answer to the prayers of the fatherless, God begin to answer our prayers.
With me here today, I have Comfort and Grace and both of them are twins. They lost their father when they were very young.
You were telling me that you lost your father; you were telling me your story while your sister was weeping. He was on a
business trip to Maiduguri right?
DR. SAM AMAGA: Grace how tender were you at that time?
Grace: I was 14 years old
DR. SAM AMAGA: You were just 14 years and you were in secondary school and that was the last you knew of your father?
Comfort: My father was shot dead and we didn’t know about it until after three days and we were still looking for him and
my Mum had to go over to Maiduguri to look for him. When she got there Whose father died in a religious crisis in Maiduguri. She couldn’t find his body due to the killings going on at that time of the religious crisis in Maiduguri.
My Mum also died 2 years later as a result of the hurt and pain.
DR. SAM AMAGA: Now psychologists tell us thatwhen there is a soul tie amongst couples, if one dies the second one may not survive for so long. It takes extra grace, that’s the sixth level of marriage. They call it the lone years. It is a
proven case here. Grace, Comfort, you lost your Dad and 2 years after, your Mum also is gone. And the question has been
ringing through my mind since I heard about your story before we invited you for this interview. People, when I hear stories like this, my heart tears apart. We heard about their story because Sam Amaga Foundation is setup to give help, hope and a future to orphans who are denied of help, hope and a future. The society sometimes takes advantage of these orphans.
Sometimes maybe relations take advantage of them. They do not have where to turn to, they can’t go to school and people want to take advantage of them but today, God set us up to go after these orphans and send them to school. God has been faithful to give us partners like you. Many of them have graduated from Salem University already, and these ones, Grace and Comfort are our subject for the 2014/2015 section. But as you step out to help them, Grace and Comfort will be sent back to school. Do you know that at age fourteen these girls have to go to school for one week and go look for menial jobs to do for the other week to gather money? Amazing brilliant girls and I congratulate them; they demonstrated courage in the face of their circumstance while some other girls would have been wasted on the streets. Comfort has four B’s and
five credits in her WAEC and Grace also has five B’s and four credits, brilliant girls but they can’t go further.
We can’t waste these brains because they are orphans. As you step out today God will see to it that your children are not orphans. He will give you strength and grace to surround you children. But now we need to surround Comfort and Grace with
love, to say we will step out to pay their school fees.
Today you can step out to be a father for Grace and Comfort, today you can step out to be a mother for Grace and Comfort. So we can wipe away these tears from their eyes and the Lord bless you as you do
