In what came as a surprise to many of her followers and netizens, Evangelist Patience Otene who is famed for her vocal Christian admonitions on Facebook announced that she welcomed a child a month ago despite being unmarried.
Otene who shared her story on Facebook admitted being in the wrong for having a child out of wedlock and urged her followers to pray for her.

The vibrant Christian teacher also encouraged her followers not to lose their faith in God because of what has happened to her.
Her emotional post read: “I HAVE A BABY. Yes you read it right and my baby is a month old today. Am I now married? NO.
“Does GOD approve of what I have done? Definitely NO, (God’s word on this is very clear and can not be changed). Does the Bible approve of this? Definitely NO
“Would I advise another person to do as I have done? Definitely NO. Did I plan it to happen this way, Definitely NO.
“I have gone through the toughest of times in the past months and I’ll tell you for sure that staying in GOD’S will is the best.
“To those who will feel discouraged considering the fact that I am someone who put up godly contents of what one should do and not do, I am truly sorry.
“Please, do not lose your faith in GOD because of me or what has happened instead let your faith in GOD be strengthened as GOD’S way is the only and best way to do it.
“While I am struggling with my spiritual life at the moment, I ask you pray for me in this season as it’s all I really need in this season. Thank you.”
