Shock as Kenyan mother of six leaves husband to ‘marry’ the Holy Spirit

A 41-year-old mother of six Kenyans shocked last week when she left her 20-year marriage to “marry” the Holy Spirit. Elizabeth Nalema, a member of the Makutano Town Council in West Pokot County, was bound by a holy marriage with the Holy Spirit on Tuesday, May 25, in a “lavish” ceremony at Chelang’a Gardens , a hotel in Makutano.

The ceremony took place in the presence of her colleagues and a few businesswomen including her husband, Joshua Nalem. Shocked and confused, Joshua watched his wife, dressed in a wedding dress, say “yes” to the Holy Spirit in a ceremony chaired by Pastor Albert Rumaita of the Makutano Anglican Church in Kenya.

“I have served the world all of my years, but now the Holy Spirit has commanded me to serve Almighty God. The holy spirit led me to Pastor Rumaita, who bought the wedding dress, organized this ceremony and even hired cars to escort me here, ”Nalem said at the ceremony.

She said that even though her husband was against her decision, she would like him to know that she has finished serving the world and that she will now dedicate her life to God and to the church.

Nalemi announced after the ceremony that she had closed her business and was heading for a honeymoon in Uganda. Her honeymoon doubles as a crusade, however, The Standard reported. “God showed me signs to go to America when I’m done with Uganda. He told me to travel the world but I told him I couldn’t and asked him to recruit other members to help me spread the gospel, ”she said.

Her husband Joshua told reporters after Tuesday’s ceremony that he repeatedly tried to prevent his wife from leaving, but she refused. “I am disturbed. I paid 22 cows and 15 goats for my wife and right now she has a marriage with the Holy Spirit. It’s amazing, ”he said.

He added that he had recently started having problems with his wife as a result of her new prayer habits. “She went to church one day, and when she came back she started waking up at 3 am to go to pray. I asked her why she braved the cold just to pray, but instead she decided to move to a nearby property.

Nalem had wanted to hold the ceremony in her church, but church officials refused her request to marry the Holy Spirit.

“Because I’m her neighbor, she came to me and explained herself, that’s why I made the bold decision and did what she asked me to do,” said the Pastor Rumaita, who performed the wedding and funded it. “I made the decision to chair, plan and fund the wedding because the world may well come to an end and because I am its neighbor,” he explained.

Christianity says that the Holy Spirit is the third “person” in the Holy Trinity of God. The other two are God and Jesus Christ.
