David and Carol
Prompted by the recent article about CC in Idea, I am writing to let you know of another success that you can add to your records.
David and Carol met for the first time, following some conversations on your site, in September. In November we decided that we should pursue the possibility of stronger ties than just friendship. For David it was the culmination of over 3 years searching for the right person, with many friends made, interesting people met, and not a few false starts. For Carol it was the first person she had met through CC – which seemed something of a challenge.
Yet God had his hand in this and following a period of getting to know one another, and some separation for prayer, David popped the question in April this year. That preceded six months of hectic planning, interspersed with a trip with a speaking tour of Uganda with a charity (www.mission-africa.org) and a wedding in Sidcup, Kent in October this year.
At the time we met Carol had a lodger, and following our success she was encouraged to try CC. I am happy to be able to tell you that she has now become engaged and is planning to marry later this year! Will this be a first – two ladies from one address finding a husband through CC?
We are thrilled with the way that God is using CC; it is so good to find a site fulfilling such a practical need expressly aimed at Christians, and in a Christian context. For those who have not found the man, or woman, of their dreams I would encourage you to keep persevering; for me it took three years – yet it was an adventure littered with interesting experiences and contacts.
Thank you again and God Bless,
