What does the vow ’till death do as part’ mean if death was only months away?
Such is the reality Faith Michelle Mulinde faces after her husband Gideon Mulinde’s abrupt passing.
The couple was wed last year in September. It is reported by Uganda Christian News that Gideon Mulinde and his wife had just celebrated their first year marriage anniversary last week, days prior to his death.
The young pastor died on Thursday following abdominal complications.
“Gideon felt pain in the abdomen and was taken to Yesu Akwagala Hospital for diagnosis and the case worsened until he breathed his last at about 8 p.m on Thursday 25, September,” Pastor Bwire Godfrey of Kampala Trumpet Center retold.
Gideon was buried yesterday, Tuesday, September 28th in Kanganda village, Kabembe off Kayunga Road.
Pr Gideon Mulinde, 29 was a lawyer and son to Apostle John Mulinde of Trumpet Church Seguku (Prayer Mountain), where he was also co-pastoring.
He has been eulogized by many as a brother, friend, mentor, great worshipper and spiritual leader.
