David Otim, a project director with Great Hope For societies Uganda, a non-governmental organisation and Angela Babuleka, a teacher met in 2015 while in secondary school. Although they later lost contact, they reconnected last year and exchanged their vows on November 19, 2022 at Victoria Baptist Church in Jinja City, eastern Uganda.
David: I met Angella while in secondary School in 2015. However, after school, we lost touch but met again in 2018 after her friend shared her contact. When I called, she was glad and after a month of talking, I asked her to be my girlfriend and she accepted. I fell in love with her because she is patient God-fearing and undeniably beautiful.
Angella: I remember while in secondary school, he was a member of the Scripture Union and loved serving God. He was a principled young man with a simple lifestyle. As I got to know him better, I realised he is also kind, thoughtful, not mention handsome.
How did she/he change your idea of love and affection?
David: When I met Angela, I was trying to get over a painful breakup. She helped me heal and made me feel appreciated. She never waited for me to make the first move and I was impressed when she organised our first date and paid all the bills. After this, I knew she was special.
Angella: I felt his pain given, especially since I was also nursing a broken heart. I became his cheer leader which I believe helped him heal faster. Click to read more…
