Gospel minister Ruth Matete would have marked her second marriage anniversary yesterday if her late husband pastor John Apewajoye, alias Beloved John, was alive.

Ruth Matete was widowed after a few months of marriage after her husband succumbed to burns after a gas explosion in their Athi River home.

She was three months pregnant when he died.

Taking to social media, Ruth said she is confident God is just and that He still loves her.

"All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purposes," she said.

Ruth walked down the aisle with John on November 22, 2019, at a private wedding.

She endured suspicion after his death but was later cleared of wrongdoing.
