To combat the devil rocking their marriage, the 5000m Commonwealth Champion was advised by her hubby to visit Nigeria to seek divine intervention from the famous prophet, TB Joshua.

Her aim was to seek deliverance from marital problems.

“My husband advised me to come here [To church] for my career breakthrough because I was having problems with my career and marriage too. and the man of god prayed for me and delivered me from bondage,” Mercy told the congregation in Nigeria.

Cherono revealed to more than 10,000 congregants that she and her husband have been going through a lot and fights were the order of the day in their house. And it did not help that his baby mama made things worse.

“We were having a lot of quarrels and fights. we would create something big from nothing and we would go for days without talking. My husband had a child with another woman and it was very hard for me. The baby mama used to disturb us with many calls every time,” she said.
