“Ezra and I had gone for the wedding meeting and I expected nothing more. Unknown to me, Ezra had prepared a bouquet and an engagement ring. He also had placards written on ‘Will you marry me?’. Immediately after the wedding meeting, it was the usual banter,” she says.“Then before long, people stood up with the placards and then Ezra went down on one knee with a bouquet and ring. As I was still wrapping my mind around what was going on, he was on one knee proposing. Oh, I could not help shedding a tear or two. Indeed, I talked about it for days because it was such a shock,” she says.
Oh, well, we skipped a bit of the information. Let’s take you back to the start.
In 2018, Nalwoga started attending cooking classes at a home close to Ezra’s fashion and textile workshop (Safi na Zuri fashion House).
Spotting the familiar face of the guy from church (Ezra) nearby, Nalwoga occasionally passed by on her way home to say ‘hello’ and before long, she was also volunteering at the workshop.
This gave the two the opportunity to draw closer.
“I got the chance to see her character, kindness, respect and the love she had for people. That was besides her beauty, which was heart-melting as well as her work ethic. This inspired me to get to know her more,” he says.
On the other hand, Nalwoga loved Ezra’s prayer life, and principles of commitment, accountability, purity and integrity.
“He is also handsome and always dressed impeccably,” she smiles.
When Ezra shifted his workshop to a new location in Kisasi, their relationship also moved to another level.
“ In September 2018, we broke the friendship barrier to transcend to the courtship zone and we had an amazing time where we prayed together, and hang out every weekend. We also went for our favourite pass time every Friday; the Power Sex Money (PSM) workshops at Watoto Church,” he says.
By then, Ezra prayed from and also volunteered at Watoto Church while Nalwoga worked at St Catherine Hospital, Uganda’s front desk.
It even got better when Ezra started working at Peponi Couture, at Equatorial Mall and rented a house in Namasuba because they got the opportunity to go back home together.
“After work, Nalwoga waited for me at Equatorial Mall so we could go home together as we were living in the same area. The kindness, love and care drew me closer to her, and before long, I was smitten to a point of no return,” he adds.
In the midst of all the bliss were some thorns where Nalwoga was diagnosed with appendicitis and needed to undergo surgery. Click to read more…
