A young man, Bayo Lawal, has narrated the story of how he met his wife many years ago in 2013. His story inspired many people.
In a lengthy LinkedIn post, the young man said that after he had gone to church to seek the Lord’s face for direction, he saw a beautiful lady walk in.
Love at first sight
At the sight of her, he said that his heart skipped. Weeks after that encounter, the lady came back to the same church to worship.

Bayo was a fellowship leader so the lady approached him one day and asked that she would like to be a worker in the church.
I felt so much peace when I was with her
The young man said his interest in the lady grew strong by the day and then they became friends. He said:
“Each time I am with her I feel peace and love, so I said to myself one day, ‘I think God sent this angel to me’.. I asked God in prayers and he confirmed the she was mine anddddd so I grabbed it.”
Asking her out with a love note
In 2016, and on the lady’s birthday, the young man went to her hostel with a love note hidden in a book for her. Bayo devised that strategy because he was too shy to ask the lady out face-to-face.
According to him, he never got any reply back for weeks, a situation that made him wonder if the lady saw the note.
She said YES!
In January 2017, during a vigil, the lady sent him a message reading:
“yes I will be your partner, yes I will be your lover, yes I will be your wife, I want to spend the rest of my life with you” .. OH BOY It was a day of celebration!!!”
Both of them are now gloriously married. Legit.ng compiled some of the reactions to his story below:
