Their love story as shared by Nonye and David:
I’ve known Nonye for several years before I got to even say “hello”. We both attended the same fellowship; I joined around 2013 and liked to sit behind as I don’t quite like to be noticed. I came for service on this Friday in 2014 as usual. Then came in this lady who caused my heart to leap immediately. In my head, I was like “Who is this?” Such pureness in every sense. I literally could discern there was something here for me and could sense a lot of meekness beyond her physical beauty. I always looked forward to Fridays as I’d get the opportunity to see her, yet I couldn’t get myself to even say hello. It was shortly after I was made a leader in the ministry. I kept observing her from a distance and can literally remember every time I saw her within those years and all the surrounding events. She joined the media department and was literally the most intelligent lady I knew. Mind you, I still had not said hello even after already being in love and discerning how precious she was. I was largely a shy person and wondered how I could land such a beautiful and sophisticated lady who I felt lots of people would also be interested in. Hence I decided to just focus on my studies.
Then came the evening of December 31st, 2019. I mustered the courage to finally establish contact on Facebook. The conversations were initially largely formal, filled with a lot of “Sir”. In my mind, I was like “I already love you please stop calling me sir, can you call me my love already?” Lol. The shocker came when I asked for her number so we could continue the conversation on WhatsApp. She offered to collect mine and chat me up instead (earlier in the conversation, I had told her how I had not been able to say hello for over 4 years). I thought this girl cannot be this nice, she just found the smartest way to not give me her number and end the conversation. I was shocked when I got a WhatsApp message from her several hours later. I tried to be slow and allow things gradually progress but I was uncontrollably in love and didn’t even know how to go about things sometimes. I wondered if I was being too forward but I already loved her and it was just impossible to hide it. I even applied for and got an offer at a new hospital so I could be closer to her. She needed some time and I had to continue being there as a friend as asking for any other thing would be a lot of selfishness. I had always been straightforward and intentional as to why I was there beyond just wanting to be her friend. Being a very smart lady, she took her time to vet and test my depth of passion and convictions towards her. You cannot imagine my joy when she finally said yes.
Like I said earlier, beyond the obvious beauty which everyone could see, she’s really precious and priceless. She has such purity in her heart and she’s a very honest person laced with a lot of wisdom. I can’t count the number of times I’ve sought her counsel on a matter and received ease. From the onset, I couldn’t have imagined doing life without her and I’m glad today and always that I had the courage to push through. I’m married to her now and it still feels unreal how that this precious gift is mine. Literally a physical expression of God’s love for me
