At Last, 59-year-old Blind Teacher Finally Finds Love as He Weds His Lovely Wife (Photo)

59-year-old visually-impaired teacher and his wife finally married
 
A 59-year-old visually-impaired teacher and 1991 Political Science Education graduate of University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN, Mr. Alphonsus Orjinta has finally gotten married in Enugu after years of rejection and loneliness.
 
Narrating how God finally answered his prayers in an interview with Vanguard, Mr. Orjinta, who could not contain his joy, thanked God for the opportunity and privilege granted him after several unsuccessful attempts at getting married largely due to his blindness.
 
The couple had their first contact in 2016, which eventually culminated in a wedlock.
 
Mr. Orjinta said: “I have made many failed attempts in the past to get a soul mate since many were not willing to settle with him because of his sight challenge. The Almighty God has done a wonderful and awesome thing that I never expected to happen in my life. For so long I have been searching for a partner and at last, God has crowned my efforts by showing me my wife, who is truly the bone of my bones and the flesh of my flesh.”
 
He expressed gratitude to God for this one-in-a-million favour granted him.
 
On her part, the wife, Mrs. Caroline Orjinta (Nee Njoku Chinedu), who hails from Ezinato-Ohafia Oduma in Aninri Local Government Area, LGA, of Enugu State, expressed fulfillment in finally settling down with a man she loves so much.
 
She declared: “God is in charge of all things. It is not good not to accept people because of their conditions. People can be accepted for the sake of Christ who is love personified and with the love you have developed for that person, you will get committed to taking care of him in love.”
 
Mrs Orinta prayed for God’s continued blessings in their marriage so that they would both make heaven in the end. Mr. Alphonsus Orjinta was born on the 18th of November 1958. He hails from Mpu in Aninri Local Government Area of Enugu State.
 
Though, he was born blind, Mr. Orjinta never allowed fate to dictate his pace in life; he took bold steps to create his world and made a meaning out of it despite the natural hindrance and challenge posed by his blindness.
 
His doggedness saw him through primary and secondary schools in the earlier stages of his life. Mr. Orjinta graduated from the University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN, in 1991 from the Department of Political Science Education. Since his graduation, he has been a teacher at the College of Immaculate Conception, Enugu.

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
