Dennis Daniel Muhumuza, a civil servant and Grace Namugenyi, a businesswoman met in 2016 at Makerere Full Gospel Church where she was part of the evangelism team that would go door-to-door preaching the gospel in the neighbourhood.
When he joined the evangelism team, she was already a preacher and her zeal for the Lord coupled with her beauty and poise endeared her to him. Dennis says she ticked all the boxes; she was beautiful, calm, and stylish and had a great voice. In fact, he yearned to listen to her every time would sing in the church choir.
“From the beginning, I knew that we would be more than just friends. She had something extra; perhaps the ‘x-factor’ that intrigued me and made me think about her all the time,” he says.
Namugenyi on the other hand fell in love with this quiet, humble man who never missed overnight prayers at church.
“Dennis was a focused and persistent and would not give up even after five years of chasing after me and being told no at every turn. He is also a hard-working man who loves God. Although I am quiet, he is good with words; he has a way of making me open up easily and with him, I always feel heard,” she says.
