Please put my membership on hold as I have found a lovely girl through FF and I thank you so much for that. We’ve just become engaged so many many thanks.

“Hi Katharine, I’d be grateful if you could remove me from your mailing list. I have been married for over a year now so have no need for your services. I was however very grateful to God for using Friends 1st to introduce me to my husband! We were sent each others profiles first time round and got in touch straight away back in Feb 2009. We got engaged in July 2010 and married April 2011. We actually only lived 20 minutes away from each other and did attend the same church while both at the same university over 10 years ago so had plenty in common but probably wouldn’t have met otherwise. So definitely an answer to prayer. We’re happy for you to know this but wouldn’t want to be quoted on your website etc. Kind Regards”


Thank you for your emails but please take me off your email and mailing list now.  I am engaged to be married (praise God).  Your agency was very helpful to me and I wish you.  A happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.


Hi Katharine, Just to say that I met my wife Christine on friendsfirst in November 2008 and we were married in March 2011. So this Valentines Day story is not really relevant other than to say that we are so thankful to friendsfirst for enabling us to meet. Christine is a “one off “, proving her friendship and love to me. I will try and send you a wedding day pic of us both.

(David and Christine)

I emailed you two weeks ago to tell you I was marrying a Friends First Contact on 13 June.

Just to say a big thank you to you and God for bringing myself and Emlyn together.  We have had a really good time whilst he has been up spending time with me in Scotland.  We are now talking of future days and looking to hopefully get engaged end of the year and marry next year.  God willing.  Emlyn has also heard good news that he is moving to a new flat in Bristol before coming up to Aberdeen.  Praise God for answered prayer.  We pray and have Bible studies together everyday.  We are happy.  Thank you again.

“Hi there, I just wanted to let you know that I met Meirion via Friends First and we have been together since May 2012.The wonderful news is that we have set a date for our wedding which will be taking place in Cardiff City Hall on Saturday 19th April 2014 followed by a Church Blessing in Brecon on Sunday 27th April 2014.We would like to say a big thank you to Friends First, in particular, Katherine who was very encouraging to myself when I was at a time when I was ready to give up. Katherine said to me, “You only need one”  Well I found him and we both feel truly blessed.  We serve an amazing God and he proves time and time again that things happen in his timing. He has our lives mapped out but organisations like yours help us to meet up. Many thanks and may God continue to bless the work that you do. Kind regards
