Gospel singer Ruth Matete has penned a passionate letter to her newborn daughter Reyna Toluwa as she celebrated her first wedding anniversary but without her husband Beloved John Apewajoye who died this year.
In the letter, the former Tusker Project Fame winner prayed that her daughter will grow to serve and spread the good news of the Lord.
“Reyna Toluwa my princess, my love. I’m not a poet, but the words I write here, are from my heart. I pray for you on this special day that you will grow to serve the Lord. You will spread the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As the Bible says; “And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?”
“As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!.” I declare today, that your feet are beautiful. Not just because they look like your father’s, but also because they will bring good news as the word of God declares,” read part of the letter.
The Mapenzi singer went on to mention the vows she made with her late husband (to love each other till death separates them) as they walked down the aisle but death came earlier than they had expected.
The singer added that despite taking away her husband, it left her with her daughter which was a gift from her late husband.
Matete noted that it might be tough for her at the moment but she promised her daughter all would be well as God never leaves His people.
She went on to ask her friends and fans to support her with whatever they might be able to contribute as she is not able to work at the moment.
“Friends, our till number remains the same,in case you wish to support us. 5495849. Whatever you can, will go a mighty long way as am still not able to work. God bless you friends and please keep us in your prayers,” she added.
