General Overseer of Victory Life Bible Church Abeokuta, Apostle Lawrence Achudume and his wife, Oluwafolakemi have renewed marital vow 25 years after.
Before well-wishers and members of the church, they vowed to remain faithful and committed to each other 25 years after they were joined in Holy Matrimony.
Wife of National President of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev Biola Omobude, commended the couple for deeming it fit to go through the marital vows again.
Supervising the heart-touching hand-written vows on the couple, she praised them for remaining true to their marital commitment and service to God.
She however said there were still mountains to climbs and lands to possess for the couple, urging them not to rest on their oars.
“This is just the beginning. The first 25 years have been good but there are better days ahead.
“God has not started with you. You have gone through a lot in the past but it’s nothing compared to what lies ahead,” Omobude declared.
The ‘groom’ Achudume thanked his wife for “managing me and bearing with me in these 25 years.”
He added: “To marry me for 25 years is not a joke and I must say that you have tried indeed.”
His wife said she married the cleric with faith and determination to make the union work.
“All I see in him was passion and love for God. He’s so much in love with His works. He didn’t have anything in terms of material possessions because the sitting room had nothing, not even furniture but He had vision.
“That was enough for me. It was all I was looking for. I knew we would make it big in a matter of time,” she stated.
Pastor Mrs. Achudume said the testimony is that God has not failed the family in any aspect, saying the journey has been challenging but worthwhile.
Friends, well-wishers and clerics at the vow renewal service attested to the bliss in the union, urging them to remain steadfast and shinning lights for upcoming ministers.
