It is a true love story between a Spanish girl & an American boy. How did that happen? ... (Jared "fly195", USA and Susana "Susanahasi", Spain)
started our email communication for the first time in April of 2007 via Adventist Singles Connection, then we continued to exchange e-mail and pictures for 8 months. In one of my e-mails, I invited him to come to Spain and meet me in person, he really liked the idea. In January of 2008, I received the best email from him telling me why he decided to come and meet me. He mentioned 7 wonderful qualities about me which made him take a 9 hour flight from Missouri to Spain!! That email really moved me inside and scared me, wow!! Personally I never believed in ‘Internet relations’. On January 18, 2008, he arrived in Spain after an 8 hour flight delay, plus he lost his suitcase! He had no clothes, no tooth brush, nothing! But that worked perfect because we went together shopping and we had lots of fun and had a connection since the first moment we met. He showed himself in an absolute honest way. He didn’t try to impress me, that was authentic, also he treated me with incredible respect. I showed myself since the first moment with him! I felt so confident. (That never happened before). Our first special moment was when we prayed together, we both cried and smiled, we felt peace and God's presence in our lives. We spent hours speaking and having fun. The day before he left, we went to visit a beautiful Castle in Biar town, Spain. We both sat watching the spectacular sunset. He said: "It is a dream come true". I felt incredibly happy!..it was a magical moment..we felt in love there for sure! I came to visit his family for the first time one month later. I almost fell when I saw one picture of us in Spain in the living room! Oh my! I didn’t expect that for sure! His mom explained to me (months later) after Jared returned from Spain, he said to her very seriously: "Maybe one of these days you are going to have a daughter in law"; so she put that picture in a special place because she was sure I was the one... After 1 year traveling between our countries and spending more time together, he proposed to me on December 31, 2008 with flowers and a beautiful card! I was totally convinced of not getting married, EVER, until I met him. He also was convinced to be single forever until meeting me. He said: "I've been waiting for you for 10 years". Of course, my answer was YES! We prayed together...On January 31, 2009 (1 month later), we celebrated our wedding in Fredericktown Church, Missouri. We decided to share this story after celebrating our first anniversary last year (1-31-2010)!! *Since we started dating, we promised to respect each other (not to have intimacy) until we take a formal decision, that marked a big difference in our relation and made our wedding day very special... God blesses much more when couples follow the Bible instructions. God's plan was fulfilled in our lives...Our advice for all Christian singles is: Look first for Jesus and the rest will come in incredible ways! THANKS SO MUCH Christie for this wonderful website which changed our lives.
God bless you!!
