Two days to Friday’s Valentine’s Day proper, Bishop Dr. Chris Kwakpovwe was already in the mood of expressing his feelings and gratitude for love and compassion from a loving, dear one. He actually had his heart all out on his face like a school boy whose heart had just been blessed with a love song. And we asked him why.
He quickly shared the good news to us, that his heart throb of many years, wife and mother of his children, Rev. Mrs. Flora Ejiro Kwakpovwe, is celebrating her birthday. And guess what? The amiable bishop was so happy that he told us that there’s always something about his wife’s birthday. That’s because it always prepares and sets his mood right for Valentine’s Day!
The day was casually marked on Wednesday, followed by a closed party yesterday. Please, don’t ask why it was a closed party! However, the big celebration will be tomorrow, which is a thanksgiving service at Manna Mountain in Ogudu, where all the dance and merriment will take place.
The bishop wrote a piece to his wife: “Thank you for who you are. None like you ever! If I was asked to choose a wife a million times, I will choose you again and again and again, a million and more times over! Thank you, Lord Jesus, for giving me this gift and jewel above value.”
