Johnny and I met on ChristianMingle in April 2011. The immediate connection we made had to do with our shared passion for Jesus Christ and our desire to find a partner who believed in the gifts of the Spirit. After e-mailing for a month, we met in person in Port Angeles, Washington which was the halfway point between where I lived (Seattle, WA) and Johnny lived (Victoria, British Columbia). We instantly felt attracted to each other. However, we both made a commitment to take things slow and to seek God’s plan for our lives.
Weeks turned into months of a long distance romance. We had confirmation through various circumstances that God was calling us to be married. On December 29, 2011, Johnny drove me to an isolated beach on Vancouver Island, Canada, sat me down on a wet log with a heart shaped branch behind it, got down on one knee and prosed to me. I said “Yes” and we shared our first kiss!
The immigration process was long and frustrating, but God used that time to strengthen our love for each other. On October 30, 2012, Johnny’s visa was approved and he moved here to Seattle. We were married on November 30, 2012, the happiest day of my life!
Johnny and I can’t thank ChristianMingle enough for making it possible for us to meet each other and move into God’s blessing.
