Robert and Louise

Robert and Louise’s Story

Robert and Louise Marriage picFor Robert and I, meeting each other through Friends1st was an amazingly swift and complete answer to prayer. As a widow of 62, I didn’t think there would be time to come to love and trust anyone enough to marry again. Nevertheless, I prayed that I would meet a Christian man who I could help in his ministry and in the very first batch of profiles I received, there was Robert, a serving Minister! Having had a very long telephone conversation, we met a few days later (God had His hand on the way that meeting occurred too, but that’s another story) and we both knew immediately that we had found our soul mate. We had both been through many painful years of caring for our terminally-ill spouses and we both wanted to learn to enjoy life again. We had thought that if we were lucky enough to meet anyone compatible through Friends1st, it would take a long time to get to know each other but we found that we were so well-suited that on our third meeting, we decided that we would marry and our wedding is in a couple of months’ time!

We know that God brought us together, bringing joy, renewal and love into our lives and we praise Him for his faithfulness to us.

Thank you also to Friends1st for your part in God’s plan for our lives.

 

 

Robert and Louise married in April 2019 & we wish them every happiness for their future together.
