Man Who Waited For 23 Years To Become A Father, Dies 7 Months After Welcoming Twin Babies 3

A businesswoman, Ibukun Awosika has taken to social media to mourn the death of a missionary worker, Tony Abayomi Alder, who could not enjoy the joy of fatherhood after waiting for over two decades to become a father.

On her Instagram page, Awosika revealed that Mr. Alder waited 23 whole years to become a father while serving God through the support of the missionaries across the country.

Though the wait was long and difficult, it eventually happened for the missionary worker and his wife who finally welcomed a set of twin boys.

However, things turned tragic when barely seven months after the twins were born, the missionary worker died and his joy for fatherhood was cut short.

Sharing a photo of the deceased, Mrs Awosika paid tribute to him saying:

“A most faithful, most diligent, most dedicated , most trust worthy and loyal member of my team at Christian Missionary Fund for the past 25 years. You became my brother and my friend as we sought to build an institution to serve the Lord through the support of the missionaries across the length and breath of Nigeria. That you will be missed is an understatement.

“I am grateful to God that , after waiting for 23 years, you witnessed the birth and enjoyed being a father to your twin boys, if only for 7 months. We truly love you but humbly submit to the will of God. May you forever be remembered for your cheerful service to the God you loved so much, your faithfulness as a husband to Toyin and your love of all around you.”
