The Pastor and his disciple! Moyo and Jaman's true love story of victory, hope and happily ever after...

Moyo and Jaman
Another awesome Monday is here and we have got an inspiring and thought provoking love story for you!

Newly wed couple,  Pastor Jaman and Moyo (C.E.O of House of Emwai, an event planning firm) exchanged the marital vows a few weeks ago in Ibadan in the presence of family, friends and loved ones.

Their love story of Victory will not only restore your hope in God but open your eyes into not looking down on any one.

How they met: 

They went to the same University and belonged to the same fellowship but they never spoke. He was in his final year while she was a fresher.

"He was our vice president and a zonal pastor and he graduated when i was in 200 level"
The Prince and his heart beat

But before he graduated, Moyo had a divine encounter with him. He was one of the chapel officials that ministered unto her when she got her holy ghost baptism and after then, whenever their paths crossed, it was a 'hi, hello'' greeting that ensued between.

"I did not see him again until I graduated, he was invited to minister in one of our programmes, there and then we exchanged bbm pins and we got talking."

They became friends, but they didn't ever think they will end up falling in love because they were entirely opposite in everything.

"It was just a Pastor and his Disciple relationship.  He always looked at me like a childish, none spiritual and un-serious young woman while I saw him as an introvert and too spiritual somebody. I on the other-hand loved going out due to my event planning business, plus I was and am still very sociable."

But in 2015, the friendship began to grow deep, and deeper and emotions and feelings began to crawl in.

"I fought it at first because I have vowed to never marry a Pastor, cos I was of the opinion that they are not romantic, but at a point i couldn't resist it anymore. Our closeness made me realize that underneath his Pastor title is a caring, romantic and responsible young Man. He would make me laugh, and he was always there for me. His visions made me even fall more in love with him. He used to work with Gulf oil and gas but God called him and he humbly answered God's call to become a full time Pastor earning a meagre salary, how many young men can do this? He is cute and calm. We both would never have wanted to marry the personality we carry, my main lesson for the world is just that, never judge anyone from afar, he or she might become your partner for life"

 Although he didn't voice up to tell Moyo that he was in love with her, the sparks between them was enough evidence that they were meant to be....and one fateful day, just before Moyo's birthday in October, 2015, he made his intention clear.

She was having her NYSC in Port Harcourt when he placed a call through to her.

"He called me on phone and was perambulating all about. He then asked if i love him and how I will feel if he asked me to marry him. I laughed, and i gave him a positive answer of course. He did not do any big proposal because he doesn't believe in all this feferity. I sill always tease him about it though, lol. Anyways, he came to meet my parents, our parents got involved, my mum has been praying for me unknowingly for the kind of man that he is,  she prayed more and pastors confirmed us authentic...then a family introduction happened and we began to make plans for our wedding."


"I can boldly say to anyone, even if the devil himself comes down from hell where he belongs to hurt or harm you, retaliate by rejoicing, dancing and smiling always, that alone is enough to hurt the devil. I never knew I could  laugh, play and dance so hard during my wedding, but God gave me the strength to carry through, and i had supportive friends, they all made me laugh.

Revelations came from here and there, lots of dreams trying to scare us from getting married but we spat on the devil's face and told him to do his worst after we prayed and fasted.

And that's how a gas accident happened exactly a week to our day.  l joined them in the making of the wedding cake. I was happy and excited. When it was time to bake, I tried putting on the gas only to hear explosive sound. I could not explain what happened  next, but to see myself covered up with burns all over me-arms, legs and body. It's our kitchen gas. I was not a stranger to it. I do cakes for people. So we all wondered what could have happened. the gas spurred all over my face, it was my elder sister that used her hand to stop the fire from burning my hair, God preserved my face, no burn, just my both hands, knees and the other leg.The healing was progressive. People rallied round me.The affected parts of the body were covered by the wedding gown and the attire for the traditional wedding. Nobody could see my predicaments. God made everything to go well and end well beyond my imagination. "


Some claim abstinence in a relationship is not only archaic but down-right Impossible,  it is infact very possible Moyo and Jaman did it.

While dating we did not kiss or do all those smooching, God helped us. Sometimes I will lay on his laps and I will feel like kissing him but he will say "No dear, let us have our first kiss on our wedding day" and God really helped us to wait.

First of all introduction

  1. HML moyosore, knew her from way back in ago, jack of all trade

    1. Was the guy formally a muslim cos the Jaman sounds like a muslim name.

    2. Jaman was changed from Germany by the groom's father. German is the original name. Not from a muslim background.

  2. whoever advised her to carry that hairstyle is wicked, nice story tho

    1. It is her Natura hair I think. Besides you can't compare Ibadan weddings with Lagos weddings too na. The whole simplicity in the wedding is what trips me.

  3. OMG You are one lucky bride, thank God your face ddnt get burnt. You tried that you ddnt even postpone the wedding. Thank You Jesus. God bless your home amen

    1. I love their story! Nice pictures..that kiss though! lol

  13. And I keep wondering why Sisi Kemi posted this much pictures...

    1. She always does preferential treatment obviously and she is even swallowing comments.Twice now she has refused to approve my comments cos i told the truth yea. No wahala.

  14. My hubby and I started out as enemies in 2004. I didn't like him at all and he ddnt like me yet we were in the same platoon, same cc group and same ppa. We only started talking after I fell sick one day and he came with some of my fellow NYSC friends to say hello. I now found out that he wasn't that bad and proud as I thought and we became friends after that. We dated for 6 years and got married in 2010. Today we are happily married and blessed with a set of twin boys. Sometimes true love isn't always love at first sight. God be with you Mr and Mrs Jaman. Your home is blessed. Amen.
