TREM's Bishop Mike Okonkwo celebrates wife's 65th birthday with a surprise proposal (photos)


Presiding Bishop of The Redeemed Evangelical Mission (TREM), Mike Okonkwo surprised his wife of 37 years, Peace Okonkwo on Sunday by asking her to marry him again in the presence of his congregation.
This happened right after they had a thanksgiving session during the service to mark her 65th birthday.
It has always being on record that Mike Okonwkwo as a young man was so shy that he had to ask his elder sister to speak to Peace his behalf.

"Bishop is a very shy person and he could not talk to me. After the Civil War, everybody started to go to church because there was nothing to look forward to; he could not propose to me. It was his elder sister that walked up to me on his behalf. The lady just liked me, she is a pastor now. He told his sister that he liked me and she promised to talk to me on his behalf. The first time she spoke to me on his behalf, I shrugged it off and told her that we fought every day in church because I felt that he was arrogant. He drove his father’s car while we always trekked and whenever he got to church, he always wanted his voice to be heard but that was his nature. When you look at him at first glance, you would think he is a proud person but on the contrary, he is very down to earth and simple.

When his sister insisted, I told her that I would think about it but I had to go to school first because my aunty was planning for me to join her abroad. I knew his parents and all his family members so that made things easy; here we are today." Peace disclosed in an Interview. You can read more (HERE).
Interestingly however, Bishop Mike decided to propose all over again on Sunday and of course she said yesssssss!!!!











Beautiful family!
