Nigerian gospel filmmaker, Evang. Mike Bamiloye is celebrating his 32nd anniversary with his wife, Gloria Bamiloye and he took to his Facebook page to share a lovely post recounting how his wife stood by him when the journey began as portrayed in the film that chronicles the life of Evangelist Mike Bamiloye titled “The Train”
Mike Bamiloye shared a throwback picture of his wife captured on their engagement day and revealed that he will also be taking his daughter, Darasimi Mike Bamiloye to the front of the altar to get married in some days’ time.
In his words;
THROWBACK: OCTOBER 7TH, 1988, ENGAGEMENT DAY.
Very Innocent and humble girl.
Age: 24 Years Old.
The man she said she would marry had no tangible job but acting of drama up and down.
The families were so skeptical and would have rejected this plan, but these young boy and girl said hey wanted to marry.
This girl was entering into a future which only God knew.
Me: 28 Years Old.
Full time drama minister and no other job. Owing my Landlord about nine months house-rent at the time I entered into full time ministry.
It was Families who rose up to support this wedding o.
Because, me, I had nothing. No money, no nothing.
It was my Big Sister who rented our first house for us, so that we would not come and be living in her house.
And it was my wife’s Uncle who gave a little money to do some little things.
It was my Best Man who bought my Suit, Shirt and tie.
It was my Wife’s Aunty who sent us the Shoes I wore from America.
It was one of our ministry members who gave us the money we deposited for the Wedding gown, because we had gone to three places where we wanted to rent a Wedding Gown for N500.
It was the money we saved we used to deposit for our furniture for the living room.
Forget about bed.
A mattress was good for us for the first five or six months.
It was all the money gift we were dashed on Wedding Day we used to balance some debts and outstanding of the WEdding.
So, the following Week on Saturday, when we were going to meet the rest Mount Zion brethren in Ilesa for drama ministration, GLORIA and I stood beside the road waiting for miracle of a car lift to Ilesa, because there was no money on us again:
A WEEK AFTER WEDDING!
If you see what this Innocent Girl has passed through in the hand of a man who had no tangible job in hand, but to be acting drama up and down…
Fast forward to many years later.
This Girl has still remained faithful and still following the Young Man Up and Down.
Still remains Submissive and Understanding.
And Now, today, this Young Innocent Girl is still following the Young Man Up and Down around the World.
And even till yesterday…
Even up till Today and Tomorrow and
Even till Saturday the Wedding Ceremony of our last Child….
She will still follow till Jesus Come and till Rapture and till Millennium Era and Eternity.
God bless This Young Innocent Girl,
For still Following this Man around Up and Down!
And two days time, I am taking her daughter to the front of the Altar to be married.
Tomorrow is her Engagement and she will dress the way this innocent girl dressed 32 years ago.
Happy Wedding Anniversary!
Few moments later, he added to his post
O GLORIA THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT
On October 8th, 1988, on our Wedding Day, a member of our ministry met me as I was coming out of the Wedding Reception and said this profound statement that I have never forgotten since that day.
She said: “Bro Mike, Our ministry has now just began” And that was after three years that our ministry had began, a ministry member saying it was the day I go married the ministry actually began. I did not understand the statement, until I began to understand through diverse experiences.
Today, on the thirtieth year of the marriage that began 32 years ago, I can confidently say with proper understanding, that I would never have gotten any successful ministry without You GLORIA OLUSOLA ALABA.
If my God had not had mercy on me and had prevented all those sisters I had blindly proposed to initially to turn down my proposals,
If any of them had said YES to my proposals, I would have missed it in life and for ever, because I would have missed marrying you, GLORIA OLUSOLA ALABA.
But God had mercy on me, they all turned down my proposals and I thought God was against me, not knowing that God was planning my future for me by guiding my feet to the actual bone of my Bone and Flesh of my Flesh.
I therefore, thank the Lord God of Heaven, that I did not make the greatest mistake of my life.
I FOUND YOU.
I COUNT MYSELF VERY FORTUNATE IN LIFE, FOR
GETTING MARRIED TO YOU.
NO Wonder things are working well for me.
No Wonder I am succeeding in ministry.
No wonder I am looking younger as I grow in age.
You have not overused me, I thank you.
I thank you for managing my Issues and Challenges.
No wonder, I have he peace I have.
AND NO WONDER I HAVE THE WONDERFUL CHILDREN I
HAVE: DAMMY, JOSHUA AND OLUWADARA.
Who could have given birth to these types of Classy,
Highly Intelligent and multi-talented children like these ones
If not SOMEONE like YOU.
GLORIA OLUSOLA ALABA,
I know I have not loved you enough,
I am trying to read some books on how to handle a Gold
SO, I am trying to know how to love someone like you.
I am eager to learn how to love you as expected.
Many times, my ministerial duties have taken me away from you.
I am in-between two options, many times,
To give you all the time you deserve,
Or to attend to the compulsory ministerial duties.
But you are more than the ministerial duties,.
But at the same time I must work the work of Him that sent me
While it is day, because the night cometh when no one can work again.
AND THEN, I WOULD REMEMBER THAT JESUS WHO SAID THAT
STATEMENT STILL WANTED ME TO GIVE YOU THE QUALITY TIME YOU DESERVE.
BECAUSE YOU ARE A MINISTRY YOURSELF
AND THIS IS WHERE I HAVE FAILED MANY TIMES.
AND THIS IS WHERE I ASK FOR YOUR FORGIVENESS TODAY.
Forgive all those times I have not given you the time you deserve.
I will try and change.
Forgive all those times I have shouted at you, when I am
Under Pressure of ministry and domestic needs,
I will try and trust God more and contain my emotions.
Forgive all those times I have bumped on you with CRAZY
AND OUTRAGEOUS VISIONS AND MISSIONS, which I said I received from God and I have not given you enough time to think about it or absorbed it.
I will try and find a better way to present Visions and Missions the Lord would lay on my heart.
GLORIA OLUSOLA ALABA,
You are a very big Voluminous Book, I have not read the book
To a Quarter of it, I am still discovering fantastic hidden riches locked
Up in you by the day.
The more I have more time to Read you,
The more I discover the Riches you Carry.
You are a very dutiful wife.
You give me good food at home,
so I don’t have any reason to eat elsewhere.
You are deep and spiritual,
So I don’t have any spiritual Issues to settle with you.
You feed your children well with the Word of God,
And You are very submissive.
No wonder, my children Dammy and Joshua
Have always been praying that the Lord
Would give them a wife like thier Mummy.
That was why It took Dammy and Joshua long time to find
A ladies like their Mother, because they are scarce.
And that has been why the Lord answered our prayers
By giving them LADIES that would be better than their Mother.
You are a rare Gem.
I thank the Lord for you Life.
I am so fortunate I was bold enough to approach you and Proposed to you 35 years ago.
And I thank the Lord you obeyed the Lord to answer to my
I thank the Lord we were married 32 years ago.
I thank the Lord we were blessed with a wonderful ministry.
I thank the Lord we are blessed with fantastic ministry members.
I Thank the Lord you have supported me all the way till now.
I thank the Lord for your Life.
I love you then.
I still do love you Now.
And I will continue to love you for life.
And in Heaven, since the Lord says The Two shall be One,
I am certain, that, We shall live together in one big Mansion
In the Heavenly City when we are done in the World.
Thank You For Giving me a 60th Birthday Gift of a Befitting Office from where I now work.
