How I Met My Husband – Pastor Yemisi Ashimolowo
The beautiful mother of four spoke about her marriage, how they met and how a lecturer at UNILAG warned her not to marry the pastor because he had nothing.
“It was January 1980 when Pastor Mathew came to assist my dad as a Pastor in his ministry. He newly graduated from Bible School at the time and was immediately posted to Foursquare Bible Church.
And then i spotted this anointed and fervent young man. This man was so committed and the way he was serving God swept me off my feet.
I remember asking God for a favour, which was; God, if only you can give me a man like this young and vibrant man that is newly posted to work with my Dad for a husband but must not be a Pastor, then I will forever be grateful to you”.
Look at us today, we are happily married.

Last year witnessed the presence of 10,000 widows and this year, 17,000 widows already have tickets of attendance.
Explaining the high proliferation of widows in the state, he said: “A good number of young people in that environment marry two, three wives, they ride the okada bike like crazy. When they slam their head and die they leave three widows straight away. Also, a good number of these women are wives of farmers.
This week they are in town, after this week they are back to the village and they show up for christmas and new year again. Also, a lot of these farmers for economic reasons marry more than one wife. When he dies he leaves more than a wife ”
He revealed that the expense of the event is not from the church purse (KICC) but from Pastor Matthew and Yemisi Ashimolowo, adding that the joy of seeing the widows excited and joyful as they go home with six yards of local fabrics each, food and crisp cash is what propels them to go on.
