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.

  1. This is an awe-inspiring story of Maxi and Joy Burchel. Despite the distance between them, and the apprehensions of Maxi on Joy’s love for him, God showed them the way and guided them to be one. This is again another fairy tale story that will surely draw the attention of members here and anyone reading this story. It is truly believed that distance nor time will deter the love of a person for his lady love. Congratulations to you Maxie and Joy Burchel.
