Mrs Adeleke could sense her hesitation; whatever the issue was, it had cause for serious concern. She encouraged her to wash her hands and sit with her by the steps that led into the kitchen. While she waited for Bukola, she prayed that the Holy Spirit would grant her wisdom and utterance to address the thing that had her bothered. Bukola started out by thanking her; expressing how grateful she was for the concern care and attention. She admitted that she constantly felt like a biological child. She then went on to explain her dilemma about the love she constantly heard about in the house and in her Sunday school class at church. All the while Bukola was speaking, Mrs Adeleke listened with a steady smile on her face but what brought tears to her eyes was when she said she wanted to know who Jesus Christ was. Her prayers were been answered: from the very first day Bukola stepped foot into her home, she had been praying that one day she would ask to know who Jesus Christ was. In order not to confuse her with her tears, she instantly enveloped her daughter in a bear hug.
The questions you have are nothing to worry about and I am very glad you were able to summon enough courage to talk to me about it, Mrs Adeleke whispered into her ears. She asked if she could say a word of prayer. She gave thanks and asked that the Holy Spirit finish the work He had started in Bukola so that she had a full understanding of who Jesus Christ was. She told her a little about Him and asked if she wanted to have the gift of salvation. Bukola asked if you could think about it while she finished washing up the clothes she still had at the tap. Mrs Adeleke said it was fine and that she would be waiting inside the house whenever she was ready.
