“I joined Christian Filipina on March 17, 2014 while Ruth joined November 30, 2013. We met at Christian Filipina on May 09, 2014. We developed our friendship, relationship and love through CF even when we’re half way around the world. Before visiting the Philippines, I already asked her to marry me. She did not answer me that time. I know how much she loves me and she has always been realistic, understanding and praying for us. Our relationship was built with prayers. Finally, I visited the Philippines last September 04, 2014 and she was there waiting for me in the airport after her work. I proposed to her again on September 05, 2014.  She loves me but before she will give her answer she wanted me to visit another girl who lives in Davao for me to be sure with my feelings. On September 10, 2014, she finally gave her “Yes”. There was no engagement ring or promise ring at that time. She doesn’t want me to spend money for a ring until she gets her K1 visa and landed in USA. She went back to Dubai, UAE to work while waiting for her K1 visa. It was not an easy relationship, half way around the world. There were ups and downs and I was scared if I’m making the right decision.  On April 1, 2015 she got her K1 visa approval in Abu Dhabi, UAE and on May 06, 2015, I picked her up at Boise, Idaho airport. We got married on May 21, 2015 and by November 19, 2015 she got her permanent resident card (green card). Ruth has always been with me to inspire and help me with my trucking business. She visited 46 States already within 8 months. She introduced me to different types of food, especially Filipino cuisine. My favorites we’re pansit, lumpia and kare-kare. She can even cook Thai food and I love Pad Thai. She met a lot of Filipino friends here and had Christmas Karaoke Party at home. It was indeed a blessed Christmas. Everyday I praise God for giving me my Shulamite. She perseveres and prays for our relationship. Thanking the Lord Jesus Christ and the  Christian Filipina staff for the guidance and help from our search up to the visa processing. ”

“I was working in Dubai, UAE for almost 8 years when I decided to resign due to a work-related issue. I had to serve a one-year immigration ban for breaking my contract at work. It was a painful decision I made since I lost a lot of money and the opportunity to work but I trusted God with my situation.  I believed that He has a better plan for me. He allowed me to slow down and I had time for myself.  I will not be able to meet my God’s best if I had not decided to return to the Philippines. I waited for 39 years and the Lord answered my prayers with the right one, in HIS perfect time and place.”

Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
