After ten years of praying and searching for her biological father, the Christian minister finds her dad from a word of knowledge God gave her.
Searching For Biological Father For 10 Years
Deanna Shrodes was adopted and never met her biological parents as a child. But she eventually met her birth mother and kept in touch with her for 20 years. However, she never told her about her biological dad. She kept the secret with her until she died in 2019 due to cancer. But her mom told her a few things, “that he was Greek and from Richmond, Virginia.”
Deanna, now an ordained minister in Florida, searched for her biological father for many years. She kept praying while taking the initiative on social media to reach her dad. She created Facebook groups to ask for help from others. Also, she “signed up with DNA registries, hoping that there will be match somehow.”
God Reveals Biological Father’s Name
One day, while praying to God, Deanna received a prophetic revelation from Him. God revealed her father’s name was “Gus.”
“I told my husband, I told my best friend Laura … I said, ‘Listen, guys, you might think I’m crazy, but I was in prayer,” she recounted. “God spoke this to me: Your father’s name is Gus.’”
Finally, in May 2022, Deanna found her biological father. Through a DNA match, she met a cousin she never knew for the first time. The cousin then told her, “I think you’re my Uncle Gus’ daughter. And I said, ‘I think that, too.’”
It’s been ten years, and the Florida minister thought she would find a biological father in the grave. That’s why she was mind blown that he was still alive.
Deanna’s father is now 92 years old, and just like what God told her, his name was indeed Gus Nicholas. He is a “retired ballroom dance instructor who had been in Richmond all his life.”
Due to his old age, Gus was kept in a nursing home. He apparently prayed to God for a family. Then Deanna showed up, and it deeply elated the elderly that he had a daughter all along.
“He said, ‘I woke up this morning and I was alone. … And now this afternoon, I have a daughter. I have a son-in-law, I have three grandchildren. I have great-grandchildren. …I ‘m not alone in the world anymore.’”
