Have you ever wondered how popular great men of God in Nigeria met and proposed to their wives?
Which method did they use? The ‘flower style’ or the ‘God said‘ style. Was it love at first sight or love after many sights.
Just stay cool as I show you in few words how ten of them got their resounding YES from the Mummy GO’s. The last one will SHOCK you.
1. PASTOR TUNDE BAKARE
‘‘Her father saw it even before me”
Bro Tunde, together with his friend visited sis Layide’s house for business stuff. When they left, Layide’s father said to her, “’I saw an illumination around that young man, (the short one) and the spirit of the Lord told me that he would be your husband.”
Without being aware of the conversation, Bro Tunde proposed many weeks later. When he did, sis Layide (in her heart) was like…” Awnnnnn, and daddy told me this o.”
2. PROPHET T.B JOSHUA
He proposed the same day he met her.
See how he did it!
Sis Evelyn came for counselling. He gave her some accurate words of knowledge. After 45 min, he propose! (no time)
He proposed in Yoruba. Later, he told her, “God showed you to me four (4) days before you came.
3. PAUL ADEFARASIN
“As I opened my Bible to minister, the Lord spoke to me and said ‘see heeer……'”
“I stood up one day and I was about to preach. I never met her before, but as I opened my Bible, I was suddenly given a deep peace inside of me that the woman you’ve been praying for, for 3 years, look at her there, she is your wife.”
4. PASTOR ORITSEJAFOR
“I never planned to marry a Pastor”- Wife
But God’s plans many times differ right? So who did she marry eventually?
Read what the wife said here
“I went with a friend for him to pray for us, then the Holy Spirit ministered to me that: ‘He would be your husband.'”
After that day, I decided to fast for seven days, on the seventh day, he called and the glorious journey began.
I have never regretted that since then. I am so glad I married him” -Mama Helen
5. BISHOP OYEDEPO
He met her at a motor park
I met her at a motor park going for Jesus, and the Lord said unto me: ‘that’s your wife.’I did not ask where she is from (because to me, that’s unnecessary). And what a glorious family today!
6. APOSTLE ANSELM MADUBUKO
A slight difference to the previous scenarios, she refused his advances initially…
“We were both invited to a church as guest minister. I was a guest preacher, she was a guest gospel artiste,
We became friends and from there, God took the glory.”
7. PASTOR MATTHEW ASHIMOLOWO
“I thank God that I never listened to the Unilag lecturer who warned me against marrying Pastor Matthew.”-Wife
Pastor Matthew was an Assistant pastor to my dad.
I like him then, he was so committed, and the way he was serving God swept me off my heels. But the only problem is that I didn’t want to marry a Pastor.
But I thank God I married him, see how my life has turned out to be- traveling all over the world to preach and minister.
“Out of the many suitors that approached her, I was the least qualified“
“I had been in various relationships and she was supposed to be just one out of many.
“But then on my birthday, she gave me a birthday present of a small New Testament Bible and two snow-white handkerchiefs.
By the time I got these gifts; something within me made it clear to me that this is the woman I will marry.
“I was a student when I proposed while one of us (the suitors) was a lawyer who owned a car. All I had was a ‘foot wagon’ (moving around on foot).
I told her three (3) things
1. I said to her, ‘Please, listen. I have nothing; no money, no house, no influence, nothing.’
2. I told her that if I had anything at all. It was the little brain God gave to me.
3. I have nothing to offer you except myself. If you will marry me, you will have me to yourself completely.”
And she married me!
9. Dr. Paul Enenche
“The first question I asked my wife when I met her was: ‘can you speak in tongue for an hour.'”
She answered, ‘who does that, is it possible for someone to pray in tongue non-stop for an hour?
I told her, go and try it and she did.That’s how the journey began…..
10. Bishop Mike Okonkwo
“I was shy, so I asked my sis to help me ‘talk’ her“
Mike: I was a very shy person and found it difficult to speak to women. When I saw her, I fell in love but we were like cat and dog in the same youth fellowship.
When the Lord laid it on me to approach her for marriage, I didn’t have the boldness and I told my sister. Later, I told my parents and they were happy about it.
Peace: I felt he was arrogant at that time because he was driving his father’s car. Whenever he come to fellowship, he would be fiddling with the car keys in his hand!
How did he propose?
Peace: His sister spoke to me. He gave his sister a gift to give to me. She said to me, “My brother likes you and he wants to marry you.” I said, “Okay.” Later he told me, “I like you and I will like to marry you.”Again, I said, ‘Okay’.
