Last August 22, I saw a beautiful, beautiful woman on CDFF. I clicked on her picture. When I read her profile, she was everything I could want, except for one thing. I was in California; she lived in the Philippines. Normally I would not have written her. However, since I was planning to come to the Philippines on a mission trip, I contacted her. It didn't take long for us to realize that we were God's will for each other and to fall in love. I proposed, she accepted, and we started planning a wedding for Valentine's Day.
Ele had been praying for a preacher husband for 13 years since her husband passed away. We have the same vision and the same calling from God to be active in fulfilling the Great Commission.
When I arrived in Manila on January 20, she met me at the airport. I immediately began to see that she was much more than I had ever dreamed. We are living in the Philippines now until she gets her Green Card to come to the US. I have been speaking in a lot of churches here, and sometimes we sing duets together. We will be spending a week ministering in Myanmar and possibly in India in the Fall. Hopefully we will be able to go to my home in the US by January, 2017.
Thank you, CDFF, for being used of God to bring this wonderful woman into my life. She is an answer to prayer and a dream come true.

Gia05 - I met Daniel on CDFF in late Dec. of 2014. He was in Texas and I was in DC. I actually joined the CDFF due to my sisters in Christ's encouragement to give online dating a try. I had never been in a relationship and they thought that it was because I didn't pay attention to it even though there were few guys who approached me. Those guys were either unbeliever or not a mature believer. I was firmed to stand upon my conviction that if I were to be in a relationship, Christ should be the center of it. Honestly, in my 28 years of being single there were times that I would wonder how it feels to be in relationship and look up and ask God if he's preparing someone for me. Then I thought that maybe marriage was just not for me. I didn't have much hope if not no hope at all when I first tried CDFF and tried it just for the sake of trying and had brief conversations with no direction with couple of guys.
I had never imagined that online dating will work for me but it did! In late December of 2014, Daniel sent me a message and it was very different from the rest. The approach was very polite and Christ-centered. I was unsure at first and prayed a lot for God's wisdom and discernment. And indeed, God is always true to His promises and reveals His will to those who seek it. The more I talk with Daniel, the more I can see Christ in him. We became officially in a relationship on Feb. 2, 2015. He flew to DC on March 12 and proposed to me on bended knees beside a lake on the 15th of March. And soon enough, we got married on 9th of October 2015. I love being married to my husband and I am grateful to God for blessing me with a Godly, loving, caring, and considerate husband. We are seven months on the way now and are very excited to meet this growing miracle in my womb in person. All glory to God!
I know that this testimonial is long but I am praying and hoping that may this give an encouragement to those who seek to find their future spouse with God-honoring intentions that good things come to those who wait upon the Lord. Thank you CDFF for being God's instrument to bring two souls together. God bless your ministry and all the people behind it!
Daniel12v3 - CDFF is a wonderful Christian ministry worth supporting. Coupled with much prayer, it can be a tool to bring two liked-minded believers in Jesus Christ together for marriage. After looking locally for a few years I decided to give online dating a serious try.
I first contacted Guilda in late December. I’ve contacted many women on this website. Most did not respond. Those I left alone. I also very much appreciated when a woman told me plainly that she was not interested in me. It helped redirect me. A few responded and few others I carried on conversations with for a while. Yet, none of these were the match God wanted for me. As I continued to use CDFF, I became gradually more specific and sure of who I was looking for. God helped me remain discerning throughout.
I wasn’t willing to settle or compromise my beliefs. God blessed me for it by moving Guilda to respond to me favorably. After using only the CDFF messenger for a while we agreed to video chat on Skype a few times a week. We also spent 1-2 hours on the phone talking every weekend. After asking her many open-ended questions about her faith and waiting on the LORD for direction, God began revealing to me that she is the one for me. God eventually gave us the green light to meet in person. During the time between our meeting, proposal, and wedding, He used other Christians in our lives to support us and keep us accountable until marriage. I am so grateful to the LORD God for answering my prayers for a Christian wife. What a wonderful God!
I'd like to thanks CDFF to help me meeting the love of my life, my now husband.
He first contacted me in October 18, 2014. I was in Indonesia that time, he was in Louisiana.
Our friendship grew for a year until we met for the first time in California.
We had the love at the first sight, and we were confidence enough to continue our relationship officially after a year of friendship.
After months of courtship, he proposed me and we got married already in April 9th, 2016. God is so good! Again, thank you CDFF!

Our love story began in August of 2014 when my future wife found me on Christian Dating For Free. I had originally signed up wanting to meet a nice Christian lady locally, but was having no luck. I had been getting a lot of views and messages from those out of country, but since I had never been outside the United States except for once on a cruise, and had heard about how long and exhausting the immigration process is, I did not have the desire to find someone out of country, and had even put on my profile stating such. My future wife found me on this site and we soon found we were falling in love fast and couldn't stay away from one another.
Not long before that, both of us were feeling empty inside and I was losing hope. We both also felt like the window was closing time wise to find someone special, get married, and start a family, which we both deeply desired. We went from sending long, detailed messages on CDFF to one another, to using Skype every day. It seemed as if we both loved just about everything about each other, down to the smallest details. So much so that in March of 2015, I traveled to the Middle East when that part of the world was not seen as the safest, just to meet her and see if everything would continue falling into place perfectly like it had been. Needless to say it did, for both of us, and we got engaged while I was there. We did the K-1 fiance visa so she could come be my wife in the United States. We loved each other so much we didn't care what anyone thought. But even that fell into place a lot more than was expected.
Fast forward and my fiance arrived in late November, 2015, and we were married on December 1. In mid-February of 2016 we found out we are expecting our first baby this November. God bless you all and don't lose faith. Keep in mind that God works in mysterious ways and in His timing and more importantly, remember Psalm 37:4.
"Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart."

We met here on this site and connect easily since both have a German background. And amazingly have lots in common.
