First, Praise The Lord Jesus for His mercy and Grace during our journey. Also thank Him for His provision in our lives and bringing us together
Second, thankyou CDFF for being the tool which brought me and my newly wed bride together!
1st and Last & 1st kiss at the alter!
Me and Faith first started talking 3 years ago on cdff. I think what truly caught each other's attention was our love for the Lord within our profiles. We decided to exchange Skype contact details and for the first few months my beautiful wife wouldn't show her face. Eventually she did thank goodness. We would Skype and text daily, study the scriptures and pray. It wasn't always easy being in an LDR, and many challenges we had to overcome including racial stigmas, difference in cultures, trust and Faith.
Through prayer, fasting and steadfastness all these things were overcome and we met in Singapore in April 2016! Wow I remember thinking when I first seen my wife she's unbelievably more beautiful in person! After that holiday in which we was chaperoned by my new father in law, I knew I wanted to marry her!
We had never kissed, and I had the honour of being Faiths 1st and only boyfriend.
Me and Faiths sister prepared a surpise long distance proposal. https://youtu.be/4sOIyomr3nk
She said yes and we got to wedding preparations!
We got married on 21st January 2017. https://vimeo.com/200628140
Our advice would be to anyone courting on CDFF is
To the men.
Be respectful, honour God in your conversations, pray, remember that the person you are talking to is someone's daughter and more importantly a daughter of God! You wouldn't like a man speaking rudely to your daughter so don't be a hypocrite. You're one day going to be a sisters head spend this time preparing!
Pray and gaurd your heart, seek godliness not looks or charm (neither last long). From me as a man. Don't accept or give into perverted requests! If he wants "pictures" or sex before marriage he's fooling himself if he thinks he is walking in the will of God! Stay clear of these men!
From my wife: Gaurd your heart but dont imprison it, seek The Lord in all things, discern, godliness doesn't mean perfection...most brothers online are broken and imperfect, doesnt mean they dont deserve a chance..
God bless you all
