A Long Time Coming


I (Ana)joined CM because I was going to Michigan for six months on a business
trip. I really didn't have high expectations, but on my
third day as a member, John sent me an emotigram. From the first time I
saw his picture I felt something very strong inside of me. John and I
decided to meet in January 2009, just one year ago. When we met, we
fell in love, and were married ten months later. The irony of our story
is that the first time that he joined CM was 12 years ago! He patiently
waited 12 years and I found him on my third day as a member! :o) 

John lives in Virginia, so we flew back and forth from Michigan to Virginia for most of 2009, got engaged on April 24,
and were married in a beautiful ceremony in my hometown of Chihuahua,
Mexico on October 10. I had to quit my job and leave my family and
friends to come to live in Virginia, but such a blessing as our
marriage is worth it. 

From the beginning, we have always felt
the love of the Lord acting in our lives. We know that he brought us
together and what we want to say to everybody out there is that he
really does act through CM. This website truly is an instrument of the

Be patient, don't be discouraged and God bless you!

Ana and John
