i made a mistake when I ended things with my boy friend Steve last November. I have been reaching out to him for months and have not been successfully. I discovered in January that he had started dating a friend of his who is still married and lives with her husband and children. I was so heartbroken and devastated. I knew this woman and she use to hang out with us in our circle of friends. However, I never suspected that she would enter into a relationship with my ex boyfriend. I always assumed that they were just good friends. It killed me to find out that my man was dating another and i wanted him back badly so i can apologize and he can take me back. i tried everything in my power but it did not work i became a laughing stock in our group and contemplated killing my self until i meet dr ekuku who brought my man back to me within 24hrs. i have him to thank for everything because we have been together now for 3 months and we are getting married soon. here are his contact if you need any sort of help. email: ekukutempleofsolution@gmail.com phone: +2348111957679 ALICE FROM CANADA

Alice Alfie

I will be selfish and wicked if I don’t share this wonderful life changing testimony to people that I love and to those having similar problem. My name is Alice Alfie from London, United Kingdom. 20th of February about 8:10pm after our dinner my husband mistakenly called me another familiar lady’s name which resulted to much arguments and fight, I was so mad and cried like a baby. He then left home immediately to meet with her after telling me the truth and never returned home that night and the next day. I immediately went to my friend when I noticed that it’s a spiritual case, she then introduced me to Dr. Dele Spiritual Temple who got some information from me and told me the reason why he never came back home. He then cast the love spell and told me that my husband will come back home within two days. Surprisingly, my husband came back home and apologized for cheating on me and thanked me for my effort to set him free from bondage. We are now happy and thankful to Dr. Dele for how he treated our case, that’s why everybody has to know about him through this email: dr.delespiritualtemple@gmail.com
