We wanted to share with you our story of how it all started and to thank the Lord Jesus for facilitating CDFF's platform for spiritual growth for Christians.
In an ever fast and changing world, it's never become easier for world travel and the advances in technology help facilitate long distance friendships and love. We thought of widening the pool of like minded Christians, so it wouldn't limit us to only regional people we knew.
Johanna and I started a friendship in November 2011 on CDFF. We shared thoughts, subject feelings and general Godly encouragements for a few years. Looking back; although we desired to meet one another during this period, we weren't spiritually mature in embarking the full blessing that God had intended.
There were periods in our courtship that went cold and infrequency of encouraging messages became the norm, but God had already ordained our matrimony and nothing would prevent Gods plan. Timing in our walk and patience with love was the optimum lessons God had taught us both throughout our relationship.
After 4 years communicating, building spiritual maturity and freeing ourselves from the shackles of worldly expectations with professional careers, I was able to travel to Lima, Peru. Johanna kindly let me stay within her family's home and they made me feel very welcome. I stayed for approx 3 weeks, getting to know more about her. I travelled to Peru several times afterwards and then on the 3rd trip I proposed to Johanna in July 2016. We later married in March 2017.
The moral of the story for friendship and possible relationship growth is to consistently pray about it. Ask the Lord Jesus to understand the desires of your heart and he will make your paths straight. Never force the issue of your own feelings, as God desires the love from his children feely without imposing any situation.
We are coming up to our first year of marriage and invite the Lord Jesus to rule over our marriage and household.
God Bless you all & thank you CDFF

He asked, " How is your faith in the Lord".. for some , they might find it simple question. But for me it means a lot, coz of all the people who tried to talk to me he's the only one who asked me about my relationship with my God. I've been praying for a Godly relationship and for someone who's main concern is to honour the Lord. And who will help me to serve Him for the rest of our lives. After that day, I felt so much comfortable talking to Him. Everyday. Without knowing that I was falling in love with him, but i was trying to stop it coz he's too far from me. Till one time we lost connection for three days. I missed him a lot and it made me realized that why not atleast try to tell him what i really feel. But I didn't still. But we continued talking. Time to time once we're not busy. We did video calls everyday. After work, during day offs and even holidays. He became a daily routine to me. And my day was really incomplete if i cant see him or even not hearing his voice. And we we re having our daily devotion together through skype. It made me feel so special and it brought me so much joy. Until he admitted his feelings for me which at first i cant believe but I was really happy. Though i was sad too coz i dont know if i can handle a long distance relationship. But I was really amazed with his faith and positivity. We became so expressive with our feelings. We started talking february, month when i signed up. April 13, when he told me that he loves me. Same day when i addmitted my feelings too ( 😗😗😗)
May 14, finally !!! He came here in Philippines! And i dont know how can I express how happy i was. I presented him to my family. ( Which i was really afraid if they will understand me). But i already prayed for it. And been answered too. During that time, we made everything formal and official. He stayed for only 6 days. But he promised he will be back by December. But it never happened that way! He came September, my 25th birthday! The day he surprised me together with my family, as he did WEDDING PROPOSAL.!
And of course i know he is Gods best for me. I have no hesitations at all coz i loved him very much. After that visit, he still did his promise about december's visitation. We spent Christmas and New year together. And did some preparation for our big day. Our wedding will be this coming May 2018!!
I decided to send you our story because i wanted to inspire those who have been looking for there partner in life. I hope and i pray that you will be able to find your love as simple as what happened to me and my Louis. And for those who made CDFF God bless you all. Forever i will be thankful for this beautiful gift i had from the Lord through this site.
