  14. Bonny Omeri and the Family.
    I am confident that this novena is a special one for the above family. For many years the family has been tormented by alcoholism, frustrations, now violence and the children for the first time being abandoned by their mother to cook by themselves. Myself and the relatives of Bonny have been praying that bonny should one day leave taking alcohol and three weeks ago, he decided to implement. He abstained from taking alcohol and in the first week, he suffered slight hallucinations. Through the second and the third week, he gained a lot of stability and withdrawal syndrome was already going. Surprisingly, the devil used the wife to insult him that eventually ended up by Bonny slapping her and she fled to her parents leaving three small children with Bonny and causing yet another terrible depressions. Because of the unfortunate event, Omeri Bonny is under serious stress and has resumed taking alcohol that is deteriorating his mental and body health again. On Saturday 30th August 2014, his Father and Brother in Law brought the wife back to resettle them for the children’s welfare and the family stability. May this very worthy novena by the genuine intentions of the participants through St. Jude, Our Mother MARY to her SON JESUS change the bad route of the family for the benefit of the children?
    I still repeat that I am confident that this novena is the special one for the family. This is because; the moment of change began at the dawn of the novena as the devil started the angry attack to flee forever.
