Subject: re: remaining questions
Honestly if I could open up my heart for you to see how much I have been blessed by your life tonight, I would. Immediately I dropped the phone I had to call my friend Adeline to tell her I have just spoken to someone whose yardstick is longer. I respect her values a lot and now you. wow!!
It is so clear you guys are perfectly matched. Adeline has a ministry here in Dublin and I am a very big supporter of her vision. She has a mandate to relieve women that are hurting by showing practical love. Some of the groups dominant here are single women. If God wills, it will be a great honor to have you address them at an informal forum, so they know there is light for them along the way and not just at the end of the tunnel.
Thanks and thanks and thanks again Dupe. Big respect to your husband for his love and obedience as a servant of God and a man after God’s own heart.
I attach the rest of the questions and do look forward to chatting with you very soon.
Re: remaining questions
Again it was really good talking to you. At some stages I was beginning to think that it all sounded unreal. Infact I think this is the first time I’ve ever thought so deeply about my life and what has shaped me. For me, it actually makes me appreciate Tunde even more. Please, don’t get me wrong, he has his faults like anyone else and we sure do have our squabbles, but he is perfect for me and neither of us is ever too proud to say sorry. I think that is another valuable aspect of our relationship. It will be interesting to read your summary when you have collated all the info. My life/marriage is a testimony and I look forward to another 60yrs of marriage. Tunde and I have trusted God to live till we are 100. Considering we are both 40 in a few weeks, we’ve got plenty of time ahead. I could go on forever!! It’s a good thing we decided to do the rest of the questions by e-mail cos I’ll need to check the accounts to answer them. Hope to speak to u soon and I am glad to hear you feel encouraged. We serve an awesome God and he sure works if we stick to the straight and narrow.
