"Two souls made by His Grace, nurtured by His words and brought together by His Love only Jesus Christ made it a reality. Ours is a mysterious bond. These were the words as contained in the wedding toast between former Miss Emem James Essien and Mr Lemuel Effiong Udoh with a charge on them to keep away third party from their marriage. It was an atmosphere of joy and celebration as the groom was welcomed inside the church followed by the smiling bride with beautiful dance steps, of course it was her day. The auditorium of The Apostolic Church, Ekpri Nsukara District, headquarters along Nwaniba Road, Uyo, was filled to it's peak with family members, associates, friends and well-wishers of the couple as they gathered to witness this epochal event. In his sermon, the area superintendent, Two Towns Area, Apostle G.S. Ekanem, admonished that marriage is for two people as such, couples should not welcome a third party into their marriage in order to have a smooth marriage. Ekanem, who harped on the theme Marriage is a Mystery, and read from Genesis 2:21-25 and Ephesians 5:22, explained that God instituted marriage and the mystery of a man leaving his father and mother to cleave to his wife and the husband and wife not being ashamed of their nakedness can only be explained by God. The cleric gave an illustration of marriage using the masquerade: "Marriage is like carrying a masquerade, if anything inside the leaves you are carrying bites you, you have to bear with the pains until you enter a bush and bring down the mask. Likewise, anything you see, you have to bear and bring it inside to settle. The servant of God stressed that wives should submit themselves to their husbands in everything and husbands to love their wives unconditionally as this is the key to a successful and happy union. High point of the occasion was the ring ceremony which was officiated by the area superintendent of the Apostolic Church Nigeria, Ikot Akpa Idem Area, Ikot Ekpene Fied, Apostle Mfon Udoneke. Other special features were; signing and presentation of the marriage certificate and choir renditions.
