A beautiful love story of friendship and a walk with GOD! Faith and Richard met through a friend in summer 2012, and ever since then, they’ve become dear friends to each other, looking out for each other, helping each other grow in faith until Richard, who’s a resident Pastor at her church, the Alight house International church Girne CYPRUS, fell in love and knew in his heart, Faith was the woman for him after all.
January last year, 2015, he summoned courage to ask her to be his girlfriend, and a year later, he proposed to her at the workers love fest in the church.
How they met:
I meet Richard through a friend in summer 2012, Since then we became friends from friends to best friends, he was just that friend who was always there for me, talking to me about getting closer to God, I never picture us dating, because then I was in a relationship, in 2014 I left that relationship, I remember our discussion then, in his voice before you get into any relationship again you need build up your relationship with God and know yourself inside and out, that year I was just building up myself, by December 2014 I called him to thank him for all he has done for me and I would like to be left alone, his reply was epic, it’s because you know I love you, immediately I turn off my phone, later that day he came over to my place he talked about how long he has been in love with me but couldn’t just say it to me, because he doesn’t want anything to jeopardize our friendship, in January 2015 he asked me to be his girlfriend and also pray about it, after some weeks we started dating.
How he proposed:
On the 23 January 2016 was our workers love fest in the church, my fiancé is the resident pastor of the church were the proposal took place, he asked me to help him cook that day for the workers and also invited me to come over and assist them in serving the food, after cooking I was Exhausted, I didn’t feel like going, so I called one of our sister in the church to come pick up the food, but he called me and insisted I come over that my favorite comedian was around, that motived me, i got dress and went, I sat down like everyone, after sometime they announced our pastor have a presentation for us and it was showing on the screen, a video of him taking, he started talking about me, how we meet, when, and so on, the next thing I saw was him kneeling in front of me, Faith will you marry me?
I was so shy I couldn’t rise my head to look at him , it was overwhelming.
