|The Bamiloyes at the event|
Evangelist Mike Bamiloye and his wife, Gloria have been joyfully married for 29 years now!
To mark the 29th anniversary which held on the 8th of October 2017, they (alongside their three kids) were thrown a surprise party by a Church.
“The mercy of the Lord played out once again, upon our lives,
to proof to us, again and again, that the Lord is faithful to all His
own. There is no way you can ever out-give God. If you are diligent in
His service; if you are faithful to your calling; and you are fervent
with your visions and mandate, and you have felt on many occasions that
the Lord seem not to answer to your many calls, RELAX, HE HAS NEVER
OWNED A MAN ANYTHING, AND HE WILL ALWAYS PAY YOU BACK, AT HIS OWN TIME.
Our 29th Wedding Anniversary was Sunday, October 8th, 2017. For three
full weeks preceding this time, we had worked strenuously and
laboriously on film locations of two full length movies, having a very
little time to sleep. So, the film shooting rounded off three days
before the Anniversary Day.
We did not plan the Anniversary, but
previously, different people have been cutting cakes for us at various
places. At the 7th National Conference of NACEDRAM, a Conference that
came up in-between the film locations, A cake was cut in honor of the
Another church where we visited briefly, and
ministered during the film location brought out a large cake for series
of photographs for the Anniversary which was just in few days time. In
all, we had cut about three different cakes ahead of the Anniversary
This had been amazing us, that the Lord put our Wedding Anniversary in the heart of people to celebrate for us.
However, when a Church sent a message to us that they would hold a big
event for the Wedding Anniversary, we never thought it to be what we
The whole congregation became involved in the series of
activities on Saturday, October 7th, the Anniversary Eve. They did a lot
of sporting event, ranging from children, to youth and teenagers and
adults…..to Celebrate the Anniversary!
They organised Quizes,
Drama Clips, Tug-of-War, Sack race, egg race, among the children and the
youths….to Celebrate the Wedding Anniversary! We all wore sport wares
and there was prayers at the end of the event….to Celebrate the 29th
Then, on the Anniversary Day, we were
baffled. They made the Sunday morning service the Anniversary
Thanksgiving, where there was worships, praises, and very inspiring
Message on Marriage and Family by the Host Pastor, after a shorter
version of the Mount Zion movie: “Story of My Life” was shown.
Then, the Reception was something else. A large Cake, they invited many
ministers in the city. There was a short movie acted for Mike and Gloria
on how they met and married. Then, there was series of pictures with
the large cake.
We spent nothing on all these. We were clothed
and fed. We spent absolutely nothing on the entire Wedding Anniversary.
From our uniformed suits to the Anniversary dresses of my wife and
daughter. The large cake, the foods and drinks, the huge receptions and
accommodation,….We Spent Nothing…on our own….Absolutely Nothing!
The Lord honored us through this wonderful Church and the Pastor and
his wife and the eldership. They ran around for us and we were too
WE SAW HOW THE LORD HONORS HIS SERVANTS WHENEVER HE IS SET TO DO SO.
Truly, ….We witnessed the obvious manifestation of the Drama Ministers Year of The Glorious Rising!
And we shall yet see more of this…..!
