Jesus kids, home for special people with disabilities, Iwo road, Ibadan.

Osun State, while his wife who suffers from Cerebral palsy is resident
in Ibadan. Their condition makes it difficult for them to communicate
effectively but they were joyous all through the event as they danced
Grace has been in the motherless home, Jesus kids for over ten years.
In his sermon entitled “God of the able and the hope of the disabled”,
Pastor Ayotunde Adamolekun said the couple should ensure that they work
together and respect each other.
The groom’s mother took responsibility to help the couple due to the
vulnerability caused by their condition. She has volunteered to help and
live with the family.

the historic event at the centre which started in 2010 said:
“I am very happy for this day and I give glory to God. Grace’s prayers
all through the years has been for her to get married and I am happy
that her dream has finally been realized. She has been living with me
for the past 10 years even before we started Jesus kids”, she added.
