Born February 2, 1984, Harrison Okene work for Chevron as a ship cook. Okene was amongst the 12 crew members on board of the Jascon-4 tugbaot that capsized on May 26, 2013 as a result of heavy Atlantic ocean swell. The boat was 30 km off the coast of Nigeria carrying an oil tanker filing up at a Chevron platform.

Okene alongside 12 other crew members was trapped in 98ft deep in the freezing seawater of Atlantic Ocean for 60 hours and nobody would have imagined that any human being can survive such ship wreck as the ship sank to the seabed, upside down.

Miraculously, Okene survived to the amazement of the world, he was trapped in an air pocket where he struggled to breath at the depth of the salty and freeing seawater of Atlantic ocean.

 

He struggled to breathe at the depth of the freezing seawater of Atlantic Ocean for 60 hours without food. Okene was the only person who survived out of the 12 people on board.

How Okene Held On To God At The Depth Of The Salty And Freezing Seawater Of Atlantic Ocean

Okene narrated that he was at the depth of the freezing seawater of Atlantic Ocean for 60 hours and still held on to God, adding that he kept on praying to God to save him as his skin continued peeling away after days of soaking in the salt water.

 

He was there without food, the salt water that got to his mouth peeled off the skin of his tongue and his only hope was God.

The Miraculous Help 

On May 26, 2013, Chevron contracted three diverse, André Erasmus of Durban, Darryl Oosthuizen of Edgemead and Nico van Heerden of Strand for the rescue mission. The mission was actually aimed at recovering the bodies of the 12 people on board because nobody ever imagined any human being could survive at the depth of the freezing seawater of Atlantic Ocean.

 

The three diverse were the heroes that rescued Okene from the depth of the freezing seawater of the Atlantic Ocean where he thought all hope was gone.

Okene had narrated that he was at the bottom of the salty and freezing seawater of Atlantic Ocean very cold and couldn’t see anything, adding that he could perceive the dead bodies of his crew being eaten by fish nearby.

 

He never thought he could make it out but God proved he wasn’t meant to die in the Atlantic Ocean, he continued praying to God and God saved him at the end.

The rescue mission which lasted for three days yielded positive result on May 28, 2013 when he heard the rescue team hammering on the deck.

 

He struggled to swim down and found a water dispenser which he used to hammered the side of the vessel to call the attention of the diverse that he is alive.

The diverse then broke into the ship in search of the bodies and traced the sound. As Okene, the only Survivor saw the light from a head torch of the swimmers, Paul MacDonald, along the passageway, he went into the water and tapped him, waving his hands to show he is alive.

 

Paul MacDonald was shocked to discover Okene was alive after 60 hours at the depth of salty and freezing seawater of Atlantic Ocean.

That was the greatest help Okene ever wished for after spending 60 hours in the salty and freezing water of the Atlantic Ocean.

 

In an interview, Paul MacDonald narrated that “I got a huge fright, but was relieved to find someone alive,” he said.

After rescuing Okene from the depth of the Atlantic ocean, he was placed on decompression chamber for another 60 hours where his body pressure was returned to normal because his body had absorbed fatal amount of nitrogen

He would have died if he was exposed to outside air because his heart wouldn’t have been able to pump back on land, it was full of gas after spending 60 hours at the depth of salty and freezing seawater of Atlantic Ocean.

 

Harrison Okene could only described his survival as a “miracle”, he has written a book titled “Sixty Hours Underwater” where he explained his miraculous survival at the depth of the Atlantic ocean for three days.

 

He, whoever, disclosed that “When I am at home sometimes it feels like the bed I am sleeping in is sinking. I think I’m still in the sea again. I jump up and I scream,” he said.

Two girls had been born together 14 years before. At birth Kendra Deene Herrin and Maliyah Mae Heerin had been together in 2002 before they were separated in 2006 by surgery. When they were conceived, they both shared a single kidney. Also their legs were just two independently regulated by each. The kidney was maintained by Kendra after the surgery, while her sister had a kidney transplant dialysis for one year. Her mother gave the kidney one year after the procedure.

How did they look before an operation:

They were born in the United States, Salt Lake City, Utah. Jake and Erin Herrin ‘s parents. During service, Maliyah ‘s life was at stake but still had to be done so that each would have a life of their own and make their own decisions. These two girls only have two legs, an abdomen, pelvic, liver , kidney and the large intestines. they are born together, yet they have different tastes. Therefore, each of the doubles has a leg access. It was confirmed that when they were four and a half years old in 2006, the procedure where they were split was carried out. In addition, it was said that the procedure lasted about 20 hours, with up to 7 surgeons involved. After separation, another procedure began, lasting another 7 hours for both of the children. They remained in the hospital for more than a month before being released to travel with their parents.

These girls have become so pretty 14 years after all surgeries and loves. While Kendra once refused the kidney her mother transplanted for in 2007, another successful transplant was performed.

They’re well aged now:

20+ Pictures of Women with the biggest bumps who surprised us by giving birth to just one child

20+ Pictures of Women with the biggest bumps who surprised us by giving birth to just one child

Pregnancy is an important stage in womanhood and it is the joy of every woman to experience it without stress. There are some women with moderate pregnancy bumps; yet, they give birth to twins or even more at a time. Funnily enough, some women whose pregnancy bumps are big ended up giving birth to just a single child. The difference is the weight, seize and development of the child.

Studies show that the size of the pregnancy bump is not a determinant of giving birth to more than one child. One thing that is just certain is that if it is one child, the child will be so big and well-nurtured.

It is such a wonder that these women have a very big pregnancy bumps but they end up with just a single child. The explanation to that is that the abdominal muscle in a woman determines the size of her tummy during pregnancy. Some women’s body is not stretchable, thus, when they get pregnant, the growing uterus within them is going to stay closer to the core of the body and unable to move freely. On the other hand, some women’s body are stretchable thus, they had possibly stretched their abdominal muscles during their first childbirth which makes the second pregnancy bump stretchable due to the elasticity of the abdominal muscles.

Science also proves that there is high possibility that a tall woman has a high tendency of having a bigger pregnancy bumps than a short woman. It is believed that once a woman has a tall height she probably has a long abdomen too which will create more space for the uterus to grow instead of just pushing outwards. A short woman has a little space between her hip and lowest rib to accommodate a big uterus.

Most women have bigger pregnancy bumps in their second pregnancy. A woman who had given birth has a higher tendency of having a big pregnancy bump in her second pregnancy because her skin and abdominal muscles are already stretched due to her first pregnancy.

 

Another reason that makes most women have big pregnancy bumps and end up delivering one child is the position of the baby. When you see a woman with an extremely large belly, she may be in her last trimester, thus, the baby inside her is definitely in a head-down position which makes her belly to grow outward, especially if the mother has a stretchable belly.

 

The common belief of most mothers is that once they have a large belly, multiple children are coming which is partly true but not absolutely. It is true that multiple pregnancies affect the size of the womb but not usually the belly. It can also make the belly big but not necessarily.

If you want all your prayers answered by God, avoid doing these things

If you want all your prayers to always get answered by God, avoid doing these things

win 40k and a night with me

 

There are so many Christian faithful whose prayers do not get answered by God anytime they pray. Many even go to the mountain, fast for days still; they do not get what they want from God.

win 40k and a night with me

win 40k and a night with me

In the course of this article, I have 2 major reasons which could be behind that and I will also propose some things that you must stop doing, in order to get what you want from God.

 

It is evident in the book of Matthew 7:7 that we should seek God for whatever we need and we will receive it. Following this, many Christians ask God for many things but they never get positive response because of the following things:

 

Insufficient faith in God: The power of faith can never be overestimated. Faith is more powerful than Prayer. Many Christians make the mistake of praying with two minds; one of faith and the other of doubt. Anyone who does not have full faith in God cannot receive anything from him.

 

 

 

According to James in the bible, we must pray in faith and without any doubt. It was mentioned in the bible that even if your faith is as small as a mustard seed, you can command the mountain to move. All what we need is faith in God. Many Christians believe God is able but he cannot do everything for them

 

Without praying to God, a non-believer can even get what he wants if he has faith in himself; that is the power of faith. Faith is so powerful than our prayers to God.

 

The second hindrance is Sin: Christians are guilty of this. It was said in the bible that sins hinders intercession. If God will answer the prayers of a Christian, it would be that of a holy one who conforms his life to the holy will of the Lord God.

 

The book of Isaiah 59:2 shows how Isaiah warned the people of Israel to flee from their sin, so as for their God to hear them. This is also evident in Peter’s declaration in the book of (1 Pet 3: 12); where he says that the eyes of the lord are only upon those that are righteous and his ears unto their supplication.

 

 

 

 

If you truly want you prayers answered, you will have to wash yourself of all iniquities and God will carry you with open hands.

 

After doing these things, you need to sincerely say the following Prayers to God now:

 

 

Oh lord, I want you to accept me like the prodigal son and forgive me all of my iniquities.

 

Oh Lord, I declare my absolute Faith in you once again today, Father, please aid my steadfastness in you.

 

Any impunity that may serve as hindrance to my prayers from now on, oh lord remove them; For in Jesus Mighty Name We have prayed.

 

Try as much as possible to follow this account for more of this and forward this to all your loved ones.
