True Life Love Stories: 'How I Met My Sweetheart'
When Destinies Collide
Chap and Kristie
"Chap was in college in Greenville, SC, and I was living on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. A man from Romania was traveling around looking for volunteers who could sing to accompany him to Romania to do some missions work/church meetings. This guy asked his college friend, Chap and a lady from the church he interened with in Virgina (my mom) to join him in a trip to Romania. I told my mom I really wanted to go because I was interested in a documentary that I had seeen about the orphans in Romania. We had both just broken up with our significant others and were both fasting (total strangers, remember). Anyway, my mom told me that God was revealing to her that my destiny was linked to this trip. At the same time, Chap's friend, who was sitting with him on the plane, was saying, 'What if your future wife is on this trip?'. We met at the airport in Budapest, Hungary, and got aquainted on the six-hour bus ride to Romania. We spent 14 days ministering together, came home and started dating." ~ Kristie
