8500 Miles? No Problem!

Posted by Leticia, 07 Sep 11

To find his soulmate, Tim would scour the four corners of the Earth. It didn’t matter where she was, only who she was. That’s why he joined our site—whether someone is next door or on another continent, two people can communicate quickly and easily online.

Tim didn’t know it yet but, on the other side of the world, his future wife wanted the same things he did. Essie hoped to meet a man who shared her religious beliefs and confidence that soulmates do exist. “I had tried out different sites, but it wasn’t working out,” she says now. Despite these disappointments, Essie never lost hope that she would find her match. She told us that when she tried our site, she was encouraged to see members were serious about finding a lifelong love. But it took a couple of months before Tim and Essie connected.

When they did, they only had to look at each other’s profile to see the potential. “My first impression was ‘Wow!’” Tim recalls. “Essie also stood out because she was honest about what she wanted in life and a relationship.”

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

As they corresponded on the site and talked on the phone, this couple in the making became determined that an 8500-mile distance wasn’t going to keep them apart. “For the first time, I felt like I had found someone who truly understood me and cared about me,” Essie says now. “He was honest, genuine and true to his word.”

Tim flew to Uganda to meet his sweetheart in person. He was smitten by Essie’s beauty, inside and out. She thought he was cute, had a lovely smile, and was a real gentleman. In the course of dinner and a movie, Tim and Essie began to realize that their chemistry was everything they dreamt it would be.

They were married in the autumn of 2010. “I remember the pastor saying that here in Uganda, we don’t have divorce because you get the best of the best in a wife,” Tim laughs. Soon after their elegant wedding ceremony at Kansaga Miracle Center Church, the couple began making plans to start a family and lend a helping hand to the needy.

“We are so grateful to your site,” Essie says. “We’re now sharing a wonderful married life together.” Asked what they would tell singles who are still searching, the couple shares this advice: “Just have faith! It happened for us.”

    as a single parent who loves the Lord, i have almost given up finding love. I have joined sites, tried 'putting myself" out there..but end up disappointed because not many men, want a woman like me. this story is touching..may god Bless your union, and for us still searching and praying for our soulmates, may we continue living in hope :-)

    It's very hard to be in distance relationships. I don't believe in that but in the same time it's cool that guys found each other and get married but it doesn't gives a hope because this is closer to anomaly .

    I am overjoyed for the decision that Tim took to fly to Uganda to meet Essie. Great!! Now I am even more grateful to this website!! Ayaa ya, Essie wherever you are, God bless you with Tim. So it works now that I see that Tim flew to my own country Uganda for the woman he loves! God works in mysterious ways! Great, great God bless Tim and Essie! Now I am confident that I will also make it, no matter the distance. Where there is love, the sky is the only limit. God bless Tim and Essie abundantly!

    She looks like the Queen of Africa, and he is her Beau for life. May the 4 winds of faith, , peace, love, and prosperity overtake you and may you be blessed in this life, and for all time. Mine was a princess, and I had to drop her back off back in the valley, LA. The best to you both. I wish that I could find my Lady, My Friend, Gods will.
