To an extent this is true. In the case of a child of God, his life is planned1 Proverbs The course of your life is challenged by some external factors. The crisis is reached when you give over your WILL one way or the other, for good or evil. You can love or hate. You can wish to understand or misunderstand. The will to obey is the greatest force of a new born Christian, while the will to disobey is the most destroying force of the sinner. A child when left alone in the world is controlled by one of two powers: Everyone is challenged by these two forces of life, and each must choose which life he must live.
And I believe that is what the Bible says: An orphan is xpirits unfortunate child and more exposed to spurits of the devil than children with parents. A mother is a protector of body and soul but it becomes double tragedy when both parents are lost and more so in most mysterious circumstances.

My parents were not classified amongst the rich but my dad was privileged to inherit 42 hectares of land from my grandfather, a blessing which has today brought the greatest misfortune ever recorded in the history of the family. My dad was greatly envied by his distant and near relations for reasons I do not know, perhaps for his vast land inheritance.
We were a happy family, my parents having got four of us: Love, Margaret, Emmanuel and Chinyere. After having the first two daughters, my parents waited for 14 years before having me the only son and later my younger sister Chinyere. This brought real happiness to the family but this happiness was short-lived as the first tragedy struck.
My lovely and caring mother died. She was alleged to have died owing to witchcraft, and four years later my father died, again through an alleged work of juju involved against him.
THE DELIVERANCE MINISTER
Two years after the death of both parents my eldest sister, Love, disappeared mysteriously and Margaret, the second daughter of my parents, went mental. It was a chain of tragedies in the life of a humble and otherwise happy family. My younger sister Chinyere and I were sent to our grand parents. There I completed my elementary education and was later admitted into Item High School.
I read up to Class III and dropped out of school as a result of lack of fund for fees etc. Shortly after that, my grand parents also died. After all the ceremonies that go with burials, an unknown relation collected my younger sister Chinyere, and up to this date I do not know her whereabouts. How very afraid I was! These events seemed to have brought me to the end of worthwhile living. Was there anyone who cared? One day I met a friend I knew during my elementary school days named Chinedum Onwukwe.
Chinedum loved me very much vidtoria having heard all that befell took me to his parents who readily received me and took me as a second son. Life came back to normal again. I was well cared for. I was happy again: I enjoyed this goodness for about two years and then the devil struck again. Chinedum and his parents were traveling to Umuahia ego their car ran into a tipper carrying laterites. Chinedum and his parents died on the spot! On hearing the news I collapsed.
My sorrow could better be imagined. I managed to survive through the burial ceremony, supplying those cooking with firewood and running errands: I continued doing odd jobs on the farm, in gardens, going a fishing with elders until one day, a man from my compound hired me to work in his farm for 50k. At the farm he subjected me to a series of questions.
In either case I objected and he was offended. He then vowed to kill me in the forest. I became afraid and ran and shouted for help. Unfortunately, because the fictoria was far into the thick forest, no one came but help came eho God. He pursued me with his knife but being younger I was too fast for him and fell into a pit of about 1. He searched for me and after a while he gave up. I later struggled out of the pit cictoria through another route returned to the village.
I reported the incident to the elders in the compound but no action was taken – the common plight of orphans. This incident created real hatred in my young heart; no one loved me, no one cared. I reflected in my mind why anyone would want to kill me knowing I had no parents.
Life was full of misery. Now I know that God in His love restrained the devil from suggesting suicide to me. I turned to the Church and became a full member of the Assemblies of God church in my village I still am but unfortunately no one cared even when some of the members knew about me.
It is important to note that I became a full member of the church without knowing Jesus Christ. Alice was a girl I knew during my elementary school days. She was five years older and from the same village. We were in the same class, sat on the same bench and became very friendly. A child of 11 years then, without parents, no education, no food to eat, promising marriage to a girl of five years his senior!
The next time I met Alice, I was 15 years and she was She had finished her secondary school education and was working with the Standard Bank Lagos now First Bankwhere her parents lived. Alice having known my background and my plight took advantage of it. National Currency of Nigeria! That was a fortune for a young boy of 15 years who had never earned up to N2 a day! This was manna from heaven and this meant that Lagos must be a wonderful place with plenty of money and the good things of life for all to enjoy.
Then I must go to Lagos to make my own money and get riches too. Going to Lagos to my mind was my only way of escape. Yes, escape from All that is evil!!! There is no peace, saith my God to the wicked. And life outside Jesus Christ is exactly as stated in the above Scriptures. I left my village armed with N50 and the address given to me by Alice, escaping to freedom, liberty, enjoyment and all that go with them: When I arrived in Lagos, it was so beautiful in my eyes and I compared it with Heaven, whatever Heaven is like.
I saw all those spirifs and beautiful buildings and on each face I could see happiness so I thought. I was excited and said to myself, “Now I know I am free! Expoaition parents knew me and my background as we came from the same village but never knew of my relationship with their daughter. The parents were shocked but after some discussions with her, agreed on the condition that they would further my education.

Alice rejected their offer and requested that I be allowed to live with her in her own flat. The parents could vuctoria accept this but she insisted. They had a strong argument for four days and under some unexplained influence they agreed and I moved in with Alice. Alice, a very beautiful girl, told me that warer was an accountant with the Standard Spitits and that she would make me rich and give me all that I needed in this life and said: The devil indeed is a deceiver!
The Scripture rightly says: Dear reader, the devil has no free gift! Whatever he gives you is for an exchange with your soul. This state of euphoria was short-lived, because after a period of three months strange things started happening.
One night, I woke up in the dead of fto night and found a boa-constrictor beside me. I wanted to shout but could not. Some nights, she would disappear and reappear.
Some nights I would hear strange noises or dancing in the living room etc. I could no longer bear these fearful happenings so I decided to ask her, and the expositin reaction was violence and serious warning.
From then I knew my life was in danger. I then preferred the sufferings in the village to what I came to discover. I became afraid of her. Two days passed and she came with smiles, gifts and hugged me.
She told me how much she loved and cared for me and encouraged me not to be afraid and promised to explain things to me later. She took me to a night club and there reminded me of her promise to make me rich etc. Inwardly I knew I was splrits danger, but how could I escape and where would I escape to?
