Eighteen months after he lost his wife, the superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has found love again.

The wedding, which happened outside the spotlight, was reported to have taken place in the UK, last Wednesday. However, the bride, who sources identified as Esther, is said to be a member of his church. But not much
else is known about her, or about their courtship. Details of the wedding
ceremony, including venue and attendance, officiating priests, protocols, were
closely guarded.

Responding to a question whether he would remarry after his late wife, Biodun, passed away, the man of God told reporters that it was too early to think of a replacement. It was a highly emotional moment for
him, as the bad news came to him while he was delivering a sermon during the

The Bible advice us to be married if we can't regardless of age. He's a widow and he knows what would help him to be efficient in his ministry. Happy married life and keep on kicking life continues even at 71years.
