“Faith moves mountains.”
They say “seeing is believing”, but in Faith Ulien’s case, believing is seeing. Faith was single when she started planning her wedding from January 2017.
Her story of faith was evident after her wedding planner, Amber Ville Events, posted a very intriguing narrative about the backstory of Faith and David’s union. In actuality, she spoke and planned her wedding to reality. You can see how much faith Ulien had about her marriage and how she even acted towards it. Certainly, she might have been seen as one crazy lady, but she’s the one sporting a ring on her finger today. She shared with BellaNaija how she met David and how they came to this point in their lives. Read her narrative below:
“I lost my mom in 2014. It was very crazy for me, and I stopped going to church for a very long time. Fast forward to 2016, some of my spiritual brothers (Fanen and NUTTY Josh) came into town. They called me and told me that they were coming to take me to church on Sunday. I followed them to church (This Present House).
“When I got there, I fell in love with their choir. I decided to join the choir and to go back to serve God. My heart was re-dedicated to God and I started serving Him wholeheartedly. My husband-to-be is the guitarist in church. Truth be told, I never noticed him or any other person. Then one day, he approached me. He said, “Hi, my name is David.” I was like, “Okay. I’m Uyobong (my native name).” And then he said, “Okay nice,” and that he didn’t see me for a while in church. I told him that I [had] travelled. He was [like] okay welcome back and smiled.”
“One day, after choir rehearsals, he approached me again and said, “Hello Uyo, where do you stay?” I said Surulere, and he asked how I was gonna go home that night. I told him that I’ll look for a way and home or join someone going my route. He said he was so sorry, that he was going somewhere and he promised to be taking me home.
“So we went from him taking me home after each rehearsal and Sunday services to becoming good friends. [By the way,] he also lost his mom and it was tough with him too. He told me how much he loved his mom and how he had been unable to move on without his mom. He later asked me out. That he loves me so much and that I’ve been able to distract him a bit from his loss and that I’m his family now. We started dating in May 2016. We got engaged on my birthday, 14th December 2017, with the help of my friends.”
