In May 2021, Nalem made headlines after getting married to ‘Holy Spirit’ in a wedding ceremony that attracted curious residents who flocked at the ceremony to witness the happenings.

She abandoned her family and everything in her past including her job to serve the Holy Spirit, claiming that she would return to her family whenever her new husband permits her.  

Following the wedding, Nalem travelled to Uganda for her honeymoon saying that the Holy Spirit advised her to visit the neighbouring country and later on travel to the US. 

“I was heading to Makutano Town when God directed me at around 3am to go to Amudat in Uganda for honeymoon and also to attend a big crusade that will be happening there,” she said at the time. 

She also narrated that God commanded her to travel across nations preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

“God has instructed me to travel to the United States when I am done with Uganda. He told me to traverse the world, but I told him I wouldn’t be able and requested him to recruit other members to help me in spreading the gospel,” Nalem said.
