Our testimonies

Hello, my name is Valerie Robison, username Bluesea311. His name is Jeffrey Maxwell username Gospel4U.

It started out when people in my church began to suggest to me to go online and meet other Adventists to make friends. In my mind this was totally absurd because I was not looking for "my other half" and in my mind I was going to stay single the rest of my life. But I heard it many times and I decided that it would be nice to make some friends in some other areas of the world with my same faith. I was quite disappointed to see all that I saw on the website, seeing that all those people are professed Christians. But then, I saw his picture and it was God who told me to look at his profile. I read it and thought that for his age, it was strange yet so wonderful how he expressed his love for our God, being so young and all. It caught my attention and for a moment I fought with the decision of whether I should write to him because everyone on the website seemed so desperate to find a mate that I did not want him to think that i was looking for that. As I said, I was pretty
much looking for sincere Christians in other parts to make friends. So the Lord told me to write. All I said was that i loved how he expressed his love for God and that it was nice to see this in someone his age as I am about the same age and this is hard to find. From this he immediately replied and we began a friendship. God was most definitely guiding us and I could sense that something was right. We decided to exchange numbers and called each other and prayed together every night.

Jeffrey:

Yes, the Lord Jesus was most certainly involved in this relationship. I had never had my own cellphone on a monthly plan before and I felt impressed to buy one shortly before meeting Valerie online. This was a miracle amongst many. We also signed up for Adventist Singles Connection at around the same time. I never thought that I would find someone around my age who actually lived up to much of the standard that true Adventism stands for. It was perfect, she was a vegetarian, she believed the three angel's messages, did not get involved with worldly activities and much more. Praise God, an endangered species. When she wrote to me, my heart was pounding fast and I immediately wrote back to her. She seemed almost perfect and, most certainly, heaven sent. It did not take long before I KNEW that this was the one that the Lord had prepared for me.

Valerie:

When I began speaking to him, all I could say in my mind was "WOW"! A true Adventist male, around my age, who was a vegetarian, and does not waste his time watching television, and studies his Bible and reads the spirit of prophecy. I thought i was dreaming. I just refused to marry someone who ate meat, loved sports, and was careless in his christian walk. He seemed to fit all I ever wanted and thought I'd never find! But of course, that goes to show and testifies to the FACT, that NOTHING is impossible for our mighty God!! We have so much in common with the way we wish to serve the Lord and we give HIM PRAISE!!!

Jeffrey:

Amen to that! She gave me moral courage to stand up for the Sabbath issue with my parents. The Lord put her in my life to help me with my issues just as He put me in her life to help her with her issues, in perfect timing. We finally met in person, the May of that same year, 2005, at Camp Kulaqua in Florida, and what a blessed event that was. Blessings were falling all around us. Then, I came and visited her in her home town in South Florida ( i was living in Georgia). I was late for the plane ride back to Georgia, and I do not think that I was ever happier about an event such as this in my life.

Valerie:

Yes, we were so close yet so far away. Well, when he came to Florida and missed his flight, it was actually the best thing. He had to quickly locate an apartment and employment. It was not long before we again put it in the Lord's hands about when we should marry as we were sure we were right for one another. We decided to marry in Dec. 2005 and it has indeed been a wonderful blessing! Praise the Lord!!

Jeffrey:

Praise the Lord. Now we are planning to move back up to Georgia. South Florida is an extremely crowded area with hardly any nature and not a good place to grow spiritually. We are counseled by God's prophet to move out of the cities as fast as we can. To move out of the crowded cities has been a lifelong dream for Valerie. With thanks to this website and all glory to God, this dream is coming true as well, as we having found our lifelong partners in each other. Amen.
