NAIJ.com reported that a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Dele Taiwo, his gotten married to the love of his life.
Now the couple have opened up about their incredible love story with Joel Motunrayo. Dele started off by saying how he met his wife. He said: "I have known my beautiful wife for almost a decade. We met in Ondo State. We were attending the same Redeemed Christian Church of God parish."
"I would describe our union as divinely orchestrated by God, because she was not the person I intended to marry. I was in a serious relationship with another lady and she knew about it. Even after my relationship with the lady ended, starting a relationship with my wife never crossed my mind."
"Aside from it being God’s will, her love for God got me attracted to her. She is extremely passionate about godly things – that got me drawn to her, not her beauty. I finally decided that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her on January 2016."
"I told her what God told me concerning the future of our relationship and her being my wife. I also sought the views of my spiritual fathers before I approached her. Surprisingly, my request didn’t catch her unawares. All she asked for was some time to think over it. But God had already spoken to her too about it."
Doyin confirmed: "After God told me that he is my husband, I kicked against it because of his height. I didn’t want to marry him. But I had no other choice but to allow God have His way in my life."
"I love the fact that he is godly. He has a caring heart. He is a loving husband. Though, the personal qualities he exhibits weren’t what attracted me to him. I believe our union is God’s will."
"The moment I accepted God’s will, but it wasn’t easy. At this point, I’m no longer bothered about his height. My parents kept saying no. Their objection lasted for months. But when they saw that I was determined to get married to him and that our union is God’s will, they surrendered to His will."
Dele continued: "I’m not bothered by people’s stares. I always say to myself, people cannot stand and stare at me forever. It is either I move away or they move away."
Doyin said: "Aside his physical characteristics, he is everything I’ve always wanted in a man. I love my husband; I don’t care if people stare at us. I decided not to be bothered about his height a long time ago."
About gifts they give each other, Dele said: "I am not sociable, but things I give her are spiritual gifts." Doyin added: "He likes to buy me books. He knows I love reading books."
About how many children they want ot have, Doyin admitted she wants to have three children. We wish the couple all the best.
