Maxie and Joy Burchell: Finding Love Between the Philippines and USA

Many thanks to our wonderful friends, Maxie and Joy Burchell, who are happily married members of Christian Filipina. They agreed to speak with us to talk about their experience at CF.

Maxie and Joy are as different as you can imagine: Maxie is a quiet, reserved man who is deeply spiritual, and Joy is an effervescent, cheerful lady with a great sense of humor; but there are two things that Maxie and Joy have in common — one is their love of God and the other is the deep love that they share with each other. When you see them together — this devoted Asian wife and this head-over-heels-in-love American man, you can’t help thinking that this was a match definitely made in heaven. Today, this couple is happily married and immensely grateful to the website that brought them together.

This might sound like a fairy tale, but Maxie and Joy had more than their share of challenges before they were able to finally meet and get married. The distance was an obvious problem, but so were their vastly different backgrounds. For Maxie, it was the skepticism of his generation — one that looks at online dating as a ‘second choice’ that only desperate people resort to. For Joy, it was hesitance and doubt about Maxie being the right man for her. Many people are averse to exploring their options with someone they don’t know and can’t meet immediately. Some are just closed to the opportunity — often at the cost of not being able to find love. At, however, people like Maxie and Joy find that they can find true love. Similarly, lots of men find that they can meet Asian women without being forced to face the prejudices of society and their peers. In the end, many of them end up happy for life, just like Maxie and Joy. The site provides a unique opportunity to meet Asian Christian women and spark a relationship that may one day end up like the one that this very lovely couple obviously share.

Paul, 47, Autralia

“This was all because of Christian-Filipina! GOD and YOU (C-F) brought us together. Rhea and I were discussing it recently when I was in Philippines and Rhea and I said we have C-F to be thankful to! Indeed! God and C-F! I truly believe God prompted me to send her a wink, because, as I explained to her, her profile on C-F appeared somewhat ordinary, bland, until I took a closer look. Her photos were ordinary at best but there seemed to be real “substance” to her character. Rhea has been presented to me as a Gift from God. I have never been married before and I now know that this is the lady God set aside for me among all others. It has taken me many years to find her though! I have never been so happy in all my life. Jesus is Lord!”

Philippine Dating – With Mark and Lea McFadden

Mark and Lea McFadden might seem like an unexpected match, but once you hear the story of how they met through, you’ll know why the site is so popular with men looking for Asian brides. Mark and Lea make a perfect couple — anyone who saw them would immediately say that. But their backgrounds are about as far away as Texas is from Saudi Arabia!

Lea was in the Middle East when Mark first made contact with her on Although Mark didn’t get a chance to meet her in person immediately, but continued corresponding. Then he was able to meet some of her relatives living near him in Texas, and realized everything he had been hoping for was really happening. From that point the relationship grew quickly and they finally met in person when he traveled to see her. They became engaged and held a lovely wedding in the Philippines. Getting Lea to the United States wasn’t a piece of cake (immigration paperwork always takes longer than anyone would like), but Mark and Lea stayed strong, and when the immigration papers went through they were finally able to move to the United States as a married couple.

For Asian singles looking to meet Christians from anywhere in the world, the site offers the perfect, secure platform. It is currently one of the most popular and best Asian dating sites on the internet, and has brought hundreds of couples together in true love.

However, genuine sites like offer a viable way for men to meet their future Asian brides and find their soulmate using the internet.
