The description of his looks where he would come from and others matched perfectly when i set my eyes on him in Ilesa. My church is in Osogbo but we had an event in Ilesa where i met the man destained for me.
God also revealed our wedding date which was October 29 2021. The period between our meeting and wedding was really short. I give God the glory for remembering me after all these years.
