Mother of 4 cries out after she borrow money, and gives it to the pastor to pray for her, but no miracle occurred
Evarline Okello from Kibera, Kenya found herself in debt after borrowing money to “sow a seed” at one of the Nairobi pastors.
In an interview with BBC, the mother of four disclosed that her woes may have started way back, but they were compounded by her quest to better her life.
According to her, she was struggling to feed her children when she heard that a pastor would pray for her to receive a financial breakthrough. But there was a catch: Evarline had to part with N54,000 in what was referred to as a “seed offering.” She discloses that whoever informed her about the clergyman waxed lyrical about how powerful he is, and that she would repay the money in days.
Given that there was hope for better things ahead, she borrowed the money from a friend who took a loan on her behalf.
It dawned on her that she had been conned when there was no positive financial change in her life, and things even got worse. The loan her friend took on her behalf has since ballooned out of control due to unpaid interest and currently stands at N137,000. “I have no idea how I’ll pay the money back and my friend stopped talking to me. Things have become so difficult I have lost all hope,” she lamented.
