/> On their 28th Wedding Anniversary, Pastor Mike Bamiloye Shares Touching Story of Their Marriage | Welcome to praizeblog
 

The founder of the Mount Zion
Faith Ministry, shared this yesterday

He wrote: “THIS DAY ON
OCTOBER 8TH, 1988 WE
MARRIED.


A marriage born out of raw
faith in the Lord alone. We
were two years into full time
drama ministry when we
married on this day 28 years
ago. I had spent all the money
I had on ministry matters and I
had no more money.
TODAY I REMEMBER THAT IT
WAS JUST May 2016, this
year, WE GOT OUR MARRIAGE
CERTIFICATE FROM A
REGISTRY IN IBADAN.

So we married without a
Government marriage
Certificate. WHY? We both
went to Ilesha registry to file
for the Marriage Certificate
when it was two months to our
wedding, but we did not have
the money to pay for the
Registration. We were to pay
about N120, or so, but we did
not have the money. So we
told the registry we would
come back and we never went
back, because we did not have
the money. therefore, it was
the Church Certificate only we
had until may this year, when
it was demanded at an
embassy for Visa. Then, I
searched the house and came
up the Church Marriage
Certificate, and I then
remember that the Visa Officer
would not accept that. So, I
went to a Registry in Ibadan
and secure OUR
GOVERNMENT MARRIAGE
CERTIFICATE after 28 years.
The Marriage was born out of
deep faith. I remember it was
my Best Man who bought my
Wedding Suit and shirt. May
God bless him wherever he is
now. It was my Sister-in-Law
who bought the shoes i wore
on my wedding day. It was a
ministry member who gave us
money to sow the Wedding
Gown, because we had already
gone to a place where we
could rent the Wedding Gown.
It was the money my Sister-in-
Law sent to us I used to
deposit for the seats in our
living room. May the Lord
bless Sister Taye, my sister-in-
law.
It was my Mama-Sister, (my
elder sister) who got the 3-
Room-Flat we married into.
she paid the first year rent.
May the Lord ever blessed
MUMMY Felicia Adesiyan. It
was my another elder sister
who got the Boys Bridgade
that played for us as we were
driving into the Reception
place at Ilesha Grammar
School, in a car that belonged
to one of my Cousins.
I remember all the monetary
gift given to us on the
Wedding Day were used to pay
some outstanding debts
incurred on ministry printings
we made before the wedding
and some debts on the
wedding programs. So three
days after the Wedding, we
had no money again and the
idea of Honey-Moon never
even crossed our mind,
because there was no money
to attempt such luxury.
I REMEMBER, that the
following Saturday, our ministry
had a drama ministration in
Ilesha, at the Advertisers for
Jesus Christ, Ishokun, Ilesha.
That was a week after our
Wedding Day. AND GLORIA
OLUSOLA AND I HAD TO
STAND BESIDE THE ROAD
LOOKING FOR A LIFT THAT
COULD CARRY US TO ILESHA.
There was absolutely no
money on us, a week after our
wedding, to go to our next
drama ministration. So, I had
to walk to my Elder Sister’s
house, to ask her for money to
travel. She gave us enough
money. God bless Mummy
Adesiyan. We travelled to
Ilesha and met the brethren
waiting for us at the venue of
Ministration of our first
outreach after wedding. That
was then…..28 Years Ago. OUR
MARRIAGE WAS BORN OUT
OF DEEP-ROOTED FAITH….
But today….the Lord has been
Faithful. Today…the Lord has
been wonderful to us. The
Marriage has been fruitful and
Productive. BUT THE
JOURNEY OF FAITH HAS NOT
STOPPED SINCE THEN. THE
MARRIAGE THAT WAS BORN
OUT OF FAITH…HAS
CONTINUED TO GROW BY
FAITH….
WE HAD ALL OUR CHILDREN
IN FAITH…. THEY GREW UP
AND WENT TO SCHOOLS IN
FAITH…. THEY GRADUATED
FROM UNIVERSITIES IN
FAITH….. AND THEY ARE ON
FULL TIME TOGETHER WITH
US IN FAITH….. ALL THE
GLORY BELONG TO JESUS
THE CHRIST, THE SON OF
GOD, OUR REDEEMER. HAPPY
ANNIVERSARY TO US AND
CELEBRATE… GLORIA
BAMILOYE, A WOMAN WHO
MARRIED A MAN WHO HAD
NOTHING BUT FAITH….RAW
FAITH….
HEBREWS 11:6 ”But without
faith it is impossible to please
Him, for he who comes to God
must believe that He is, and
that He is a rewarder of those
who diligently seek Him.”
– MIKE BAMILOYE
