Day Grace Found Grace in Church through Abia Speaker


When on Sunday, April 18, Mrs Grace Ifeoma Enyiocha dressed up for church like any other Sunday, little did she know that that of yesterday was going to be different and had been specially prepared for her by Heaven as a prayer answering day for her.

When as the lead singer of Trinity Methodist Church, Umuegwu Afugiri, where the Speaker had gone to attend the Child Dedication and Thanksgiving Service of Little Princess Chikaima Ihedioha, daughter of Prince & Mrs Emeka Elias Ihedioha of Ohuhu community in Umuahia North LGA, she raised melodious choruses that got the church rocking in worship, the heavily pregnant Mrs Grace Ifeoma Enyiocha caught the attention of the Speaker who was enthralled by the joy and dedication with which she led the church band in songs despite also having a toddler she was caring for at the same time.

Moved by this sight, the Speaker, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji called out Mrs Enyiocha when the church invited him to make his remarks and expressed his gladness at seeing such a heavily pregnant woman with another toddler she’s caring for leading the church band in songs of praise to God and with so much joy.

Asked what she was doing for a living, the church already sensing where the Speaker was heading to with such question erupted in joy with thunderous applause and with shouts of “Praise the Lord!” The lead singer replied that she was an applicant having studied Accounting and completed her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) but had been searching for a job without success. Then the church was rocked to its foundation with jubilation and shouts of “Ikukuoma Abia” (the name the Speaker is generally called by his admirers) when the Speaker announced that he was offering her automatic employment and asked Prince Emeka Elias Ihedioha to get her documents for processing immediately.

The Speaker urged the church to give the glory to God alone as Mrs Grace Ifeoma Enyiocha was definitely another reason God made him come to the church, for the first time.

“It is her day of reward”, the Speaker told the jubilant congregation and gave another princely sum to the church as support.

That was how Grace found Grace yesterday!
