We met for the first time on June 7th 2014 at the Nations to Nations conference in YWAM Recife. She was going to be a student in our upcoming English school, and I was working with comunications for the school, so we already knew of each other, but had no interest. In the school, she was one of my students, and we began to get to know each other and talked often during free times. Sparks a flying and trying to keep ourselves on the ground, it was apparent that something was going on.

   We spent the next month getting to know each other with the help of skype and facebook. We spent the end of August through September working together in another English School, and during that time got the conviction and peace that we needed to proceed towards marriage. In November I was given engagement/wedding rings, and was able to officially propose to her after a wonderful evening together.

   Then we didn't see each other for 8 months. I went to the US, Colombia & Peru. While she did a counseling school, and also went to Argentina. In fact, the first 13 months since the first English school, we were apart for 11 months of that time.

Now the time has finally come. On January 9th, we will come together as one, and begin the great adventure that is "Marriage". After all that time apart we can both say that it was completely worth the wait. It will also be when we have our first kiss, since we have decided to wait until the wedding day to have it.

   On Saturday, January 16th we will be moving to Colombia where we will spend atleast 1 year as teachers in a Christian Elementary/High school. We believe that this is a true gift from God and we're excited to make such a difference in each one of those kids lives. And we hope that you remember us in your prayers as it will surely come with some spriritual warfare.

   When we arrive we will have many initial costs, with visas and getting settled in and all. We appreciate your help to be able to get started on the right foot, and also enjoy our Honeymoon.

    We thank you with all our hearts!
