Johan and Angelic: Trust Your Heart

Johan and his kids

“I am a Born Again Christian. Full of the holy spirit. I am divorced and have 4 children.” — Johan’s profile (September 2011)

Trust your heart.

Johan, a simple 51-year-old  man who was searching for a woman who can give him time, met Angelic  on Christian Filipina.  But she wished to find a relationship that would lead to marriage with a man who had never been married nor divorced. Johan, being divorced with four kids, did not meet Angelic’s criterion.


“I am a Spiritual woman. Looking for a man to spend time with and talk with be my best friend.”–Angelic’s profile (February 2011)

They appreciated that they had found friends in each other who had the same faith and denomination. Despite this, they both realized that they were not the persons they were looking for. They both decided to cease their communication and search for other people.

One and a half months later, Johan tried to reach out to Angelic again. Johan admitted that he never stopped thinking of her and that he still felt the same for her. He asked for the chance to prove to Angelic that his intentions were real.

She agreed.  Before long, Johan was visiting the Philippines. Their relationship was centered in God through prayer and fasting. Johan proposed a marriage to Angelic and they were married.

Johan is now back in the Netherlands, and they are processing the visa papers for her to join him soon. They knew that God’s favor will be upon them. “God is not too late nor too soon but all His ways is perfect. His will to us is to be together and love one another and serve Him as long as we live.

At first, they may have thought they were not what they were looking for but now, they figured they were God’s will for each other. They may have closed doors and said “goodbye” once, but their love now became stronger as they say “hello” to a happy married life.

They recently sent us this message along with their testimonial photos: “We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We believe that your intention is to help many people to find their mate here and you entrust God for everything. There is hope in the Lord and it takes  a step of faith to find the right one.”

  7. This post reminds me of some stanzas of 1 of my favorite Christian songs w/c is “Trust His Heart” by Babbie Mason – “All things work for our good / Though sometimes we can’t See how they could… /Our Father knows what’s best for us / His ways are not our own… /God is too wise to be mistaken / God is too good to be unkind / So when you don’t understand / When don’t see His plan /When you can’t trace His hand / Trust His Heart” – Which is really true, ALL we need is to Trust His Heart.

  12. Hello everyone, Just want to share to all who planning to get marry in the Philippines, I got married April 20,2011. After we got married my Husband stayed here in Philippines for 6 months, On October 2, 2011 He come back to the US to file the Petition for my Spousal Visa. My Husband filled up and filed Form I-130, the uscis Accepted it on October 31, 2011. And it Approved April 14, 2012. Then the USCIS forward all my Documents to the National Visa Center ( NVC). The NVC Send me a letter that i need to fill up DS-230 form and Pay $230 for visa processing and 88USD for Affidavit of Support for the my Husband the Petitioner. The NVC send us the Noticed to Pass Civil Documents such us Marriage Contract, NBI cert., Police Cert., Photo Copy of my Passport and VISA ID PICTURES. All you have to to is follow the instructions of the NVC. November 2012 i received a Noticed of my Interview Schedule to the US Embassy in Manila. After 3 Days i received my VISA. That’s all we do and we don’t have any attorney or any body who help our Papers, Me and my Husband did our Papers done in our own effort. Now we are in the USA already..Spousal Visa is very confident because the SUN shine on you. The interview is just Formality to all immigrant Spousal VISA. Good Luck to all who are now in Processing for Visa and to those who plan to. God bless you all and CF Staff. Thank you for outstanding Site where me and my Husband met. God bless your Website!
