Love doesn’t have a time or place. Sometimes it comes unexpected, which is exactly what happened to Hellen and Themba.

They were at a funeral last year, when she caught his eye. Themba wanted to get to know her and asked for her number, but Hellen was reluctant. However, a determined Themba was able to get her number the following day and arranged for them to meet.

During this “meeting”, Hellen suggested Themba meets her spiritual parents and Themba had no objections. He says he didn’t mind at all, for its normal for Christians to introduce their potential lifetime partner to their spiritual parents.  

They were given a bit of privacy to talk and that’s where Themba was able to tell Hellen exactly how he felt about her. This marked the beginning of their relationship.

A few months down the line, Themba paid lobola. The couple say they invited the OPW crew to their wedding because they wanted to share their special day with the rest of the country.
