The Bible tells us ”He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord”. (Proverbs 18:22) It is therefore with great pleasure that we look forward to Omoghene and Alisa’s marriage.
Alisa has always joined and participated in most of our family activities/functions. We continue to welcome her into our family with open arms and hearts filled with joy, happiness and love. We have met and spent some memorable and pleasant time with some members of the Flemister’s family and look forward to meeting more of them during the coming (one in a life time) event. To Omoghene and Alisa we say best wishes and Congratulations.
