Johannes "Joe" Marumo and Ayanda Ntola met at a work prayer meeting in 2013.
Marumo says it was her dedication and love for the faith that drew him to her.
"She was doing her internship then. We got along quite well. We shared a lot in common as we were Christians and both were passionate about living a purpose-driven life and impacting the nation through gifts God gave to us.
The couple, who are six years apart in age, say before the romance, they became the best of friends.
"After a month, we became best friends, best buddies, and we were always there for each other, sharing and motivating one another at all times and watching a few movies together," Marumo says.
"A few years later I realised that my best friend is actually the piece I needed to complete my puzzle."
