Ruth Matete’s late Nigerian husband pastor John Apewajoye would be celebrating his birthday today if he was still alive.
The man of God succumbed to injuries at a city hospital in April following a gas accident. He was later buried in July.
September 22, being his birthday, Ruth took to social media to reveal that she was overpowered by emotions on his special day.
Today, Sept 22nd, my late husband would be turning a year older. Tried to ignore the emotions, but it’s hard. Say a prayer for me😔’ she wrote.
Her fans have sent her words of encouragement and below are some of their messages;

Truth is some days are very hard. When death knocks at your door, there’s nothing you can do. Some days, voices in my head tell me am taking too long in this mourning phase. But I have made up my mind not to be hard on myself. I patiently wait for the day God will heal me totally. But the again, some days I doubt if this kind of pain can totally heal. So I ask God to give me a new heart instead. Till then, I’ll smile when God gives me a chance to. I will laugh when God allows me to. But above all, I will keep serving Him My hair is a gift from @ctylebycindy_glamhouse_hair_ke #Pstruthmatete #thejourneytomyhealing #GodcanGodwillGodwins
