Mrs Robert, a member of the Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation Nigeria, who lost her income and job as a teacher due to the frequent fracture occurrence of her little cute and adorable son, Mst Edward Robert who has been diagnosed with brittle bone condition (OI) in Nigeria was presented with some clothing items to start a business of her own at the 2019 conference, theme: totally well-being and issues around brittle bone condition to enable her earn a living as she continues to provide suitable care for both her little prince Edward and support the family in general.

Thank you to Bethany Community Church UK and to everyone in the UK who have donated these items to us, we are very grateful.

And here is her testimony and appreciation:

Greeting to you Neil, Elders and the Bethany Community Church, Harpenden U.K, with utmost pleasantries and touching love I write you this letter to show my sincere appreciation for your support to the Roberts family here in Nigeria and Osteogenesis Imperfect Foundation, Nigeria through Mrs Tarela Aghanti who is selfless in her goal to make life better with people affected with the Brittle Bone conditions in Nigeria which incidentally my lovely boy Edward is affected.
Words in this letter cannot really express the great joy I felt realizing that people out there can really show love to my family and the dying children of Nigeria suffering for Osteogenesis Imperfecta which the condition often render family useless in the strive to make your child pass through the world in peace and live just a normal life like other children does. Your immense donation, contribution and support have helped us grow morally, physically, educationally and financially.
It is not doubted that you all are great folks who are not only “hearer of His word but a doer of His work”. You all are God’s sent to us here in Nigeria and indeed we appreciate all you have sent across to us for upliftment and support of families here, may the good God meet you all at the point of your needs and may your prayers be answered.
The wonderful donations has helped my family stand morally and financially, my wife has her little business with the recent donation of clothes, bags and shoe and has been able to take good care of Edward with much concentration and love as a mother. Edward is all full of charming smile and spirit, he has forever been happy, with the Zole infusion administered on him every 6 months he has remained active both in school and at home. Edward despite his disability status was awarded “best coping” in his class in the last educational section. With Edward we witnessed the power and love of God in our life and through you all in Bethany
Community Church the Lord has fulfilled his work in our life. You are a living witnessed of Gods work in our lives.
A cheerful giver is always endowed with more as God loves a cheerful giver, And let us not be weary in well doing: for In due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Gal 6:9. You all shall reap the fruit of your labour and indeed may all sins be forgiven for it not to cut short the Glory of God in our lives.
Much appreciation to Neil for the love and support to everyone here, May you never be found wanting when the spirit of God is upon your life, the greatness of God’s purpose for you will manifest. “Distributing to the necessity of saint; given to hospitality” Roman 12:13
Thank you once again for your effort and support to our strive for survival of our little Prince Edward Roberts.
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all Amen
Mr & Mrs Roberts
