Former host of NTV’s gospel show Cross Over 101, Faith Muturi, on December 11th, gave birth to a baby boy.
The media personality and her husband Geroge Ngungi walked down the aisle back in December 2015, and earlier this year revealed that they were expecting their first child.
A few days after breaking the news of the newborn, Faith who is also a singer, songwriter, motivational speaker, and MC, finally gave her fans and followers a glimpse of the cute baby boy named Lemuel Imani Gakio Ngugi.
Along with the pictures, Faith penned a letter addressed to the less than a week old Lemuel.
Words can’t describe the joy we have in meeting you. We have loved and prayed for you earnestly even before you were born. We are honoured and overjoyed to be your parents. We pray to raise you up as God desires. We’d like to let you know what your name(s) mean. They are a reflection of our prayers for you and God’s promises in your life.
Lemuel means ‘Devoted to God’. That’s our ultimate prayer for you. That you will love for God, all the days of your life. Lemuel is also similar to Emmanuel- you are a constant reminder that God is with us. The name Lemuel is of a king who gave wise counsel in Proverbs 31. Son, you are royalty. Your Dad gave you the name Imani.
Your journey this far has been one of Faith. You have overcome great battles to get here. May you always have faith. Be persistent, resilient and determined to be all you can be. You’re a champion! Gakio means hardworking. Just like your grandpa, may you work hard, not just for yourself but to add value and make a difference in society.
So now you know! May your name(s) continually remind you who you are and more importantly, whose you are. A man of great purpose and destiny. We are here for you through the different seasons of life.
Love, Dad & Mum.
