Femi's Story

FemiMy name is Sonia and I am Femi's mother. The love and faithfulness of God is true and has been proven many times to our family. After God brought us into the United States from Benin, a small country in West Africa, Femi was diagnosed with congenital heart disease in 2013 at Children's Hospital & Medical Center – Omaha. She needed a heart transplant. The decision to get a heart transplant without any delay came up after Femi passed out the second time. It was very hard for our family to believe in such a thing, but as Christian believers, we know that Our Lord Jesus can heal her, for He has been always faithful to us throughout our journey with Him. We strongly believed in His miraculous healing and we first stepped out in faith from the hospital without putting her on the transplant list, fasting and praying throughout churches,
and everyone who heard her history for the supernatural work of the Lord. When the time came for God to glorify Himself through her servant, HE used HIS way to do the miracle we all were waiting for.

A year after her diagnosis, we trusted God and added Femi to United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) national list. At that time she was an outpatient, and the doctor said that as an outpatient it could take 6 months to a year to get her new heart, because there were many other kids across the country waiting in the hospital to get an organ at that time. Only six days after putting her on the list, we received a phone call that an organ was ready for her. That day, we were watching the air show at Offutt AFB south of downtown Omaha in Bellevue, Nebraska. I personally did not believe that Godwill heal her through another person's organ. All my expectation was in Jesus'
supernatural healing. I understood and believed after that day, that God is truly limitless and HIS ways are not our ways. Within 3 hours after the phone call, we were at Children's. The Lord provided a new healthy heart for Femi. The surgery took over 8 hours and went successfully by God's grace.
