Rev. Azigiza and wife as part of their 18th marriage anniversary are set to host the 2020 edition of the Young Couples Connect as part of measures to educate young men and women on relationship and marriage issues.
According to them, the three-month mentoring programme would talk, teach and mentor young couples about marriage adding that people should not only prepare for their careers but also prepare for their marriage and family.
Speaking on the ‘Best Entertainment Show’ Wednesday morning on Okay FM, Rev Azigiza explained marriage may turn out to be either magnificent, manageable or a miserable experience.
“We are looking for 3 things on this programme. We want to put God in people’s marriages. We must connect our marriage in God’s way. Another one is we want to bring practical Christian solutions. The third one is that we want people to enjoy marriage. How do we make it magnificent?” he said.
He added, “This is ministry work, we want to be a blessing to many with respect to their marriages. Anyone at the stage ready to marry is qualified for this, including potential marriage couples. First one would be an open space in an auditorium with all the necessary protocols being observed. Afterwards, we would then place all the couples in one group then we start zoom classes, it’s a holistic thing.”
The two lovebirds look very happy with each other. Their love story is not just interesting but also an inspiring one. Gertrude used to be a go-between for Azigiza, born Victor Kpakpo Addo, scouting girls for him, but they ended up as lovers and subsequently got married.
“I was a betweener for him. Sometimes I scouted for girls just to help him find someone, I knew his taste and preferences when it comes to girls” the wife repeated on the ‘Best Entertainment Show’.
