FIRST MEETING

FLORENCE: We met while on campus. He didn’t ask me for my number directly, but instead, he circulated a paper in class asking for phone numbers just to get mine. I must say that his strategy worked out quite well.

THE PROPOSAL

FLORENCE: It was on the eve of my birthday and he was set to travel to Djibouti. He came home and left shortly after that. Moments later, I heard a knock on the door. I  asked the person to come in but no one did. Instead, the knocks continued.

Out of curiosity, I went to check who was at the door. I was totally surprised when I saw more than ten people at the door. They were carrying my birthday cake. I cut the cake and we ate it together with some refreshments.

Before I had even recovered from the shock of the birthday surprise, Dennis stood up holding the ring. And I couldn’t say no because he was the man I had grown to love.

THE BIG DAY

DENNIS AND MAGDALENE: Preparing for the wedding was a bit challenging. At some point, the budget was not matching the money we had saved up and we almost cancelled the wedding. But with God, everything was made possible.
