Has the Light ever become the Sun?

Some of you will know of my story regarding Mercy and I. She is pictured here in a recent picture. We have known each other for 7 years through a Christian site.

We were just friends for 4 years. She started having feelings for me long before I knew it. She had asked God to reveal to her if it was right. She used to hear me speak of failed relationships.Finally one day she asked me why I never considered her.

I was taken back. I told her it was the age difference. I didnt realize her mom was 29 years younger than her dad. We have 25 years difference.

Strange part is once we made a decision, my heart turned towards her. I was no longer always on the look out for that mate. It was God. Well, we tried for the last two years to get Visa's to get together.

We kinda broke up a few months ago for a short time. I know we were both just worn out. She is from Nigeria. Yeah, the scam capital. I checked everything out a long time ago.

Anway we were treated badly regarding our two visa applications. I think it jaded us. We had hope, but we didnt have hope if you know what I mean.

I kept asking for God's will. For hope. I felt like I would never Love again and that I was destined to be alone forever. I had poured my heart into this. So had she.

We, had tried to talk on the phone. Her cellphone she used to have was bad.Eventually totally broke. Her Uncles is worse and would not connect.

God had spoken to us...her and then me a long time ago. The dream was fading though. She had been on webcam only twice. One I couldnt see her. The power of the internet there is much weaker than her in many cases.

The one time I saw her almost two Years ago I could see Jesus in her eyes. She always smiles and loves the Lord. How could I deserve such a beautiful person? I have no answer.

Well all these years it has been a chatbox and emails....until wednesday.........

First off Father God I give you all Glory and Praise.

Wednesday I chatted with a dear friend. She is a Pastor in Canada in her 60's. She ministers in Africa and in Nigeria from time to time. She has helped many come from there over the years and has also adopted from there. Mosty recently a 14 year old girl.

I kidded around and asked her if she would adopt Mercy and send her to me. She paused and then told me about a well known Pastor from there that she ministers with and he has a program she and many others have used.

So I contacted him. He is going to help us. He was very personable and very sincere. So that is in progress this coming week. I appreciate your prayers.

Now the other thing. This Woman Mercy that I have loved, and actually in the physical realm, there has been no sensible reasons. I am older. I live 6000 miles away and what could we ever have in common?

Well we went 7 years with just chats an emails. Now we can talk on the phone! Any suggestions for cheap ways of doing this is appreciated.

We have had such woinderful conversations. Today we talked for an hour and the Sun hit me in the face. She is so perfect for me and she feels the sqame about me. Our voices, validate everything we believed in the Spirit for years. I can not begin to thank God enough, nor even explain my joy and explosion of "I See this as God"! I saw it before, but what I saw in part and hoped for for all this time seems to be happening before my eyes. To God be Glory!!

I wish I could better explain what I feel inside, but ecstacy is the tip of the iceburg. I appreciate your prayers greatly. We need a lot of things to happen, but nothing is impossible with God!

Blessing to you and Mercy. Truly sounds like God indeed. I know people who use and swear. It's free. If I understand correctly, computer communication was difficult. But give it a shot. For a phone headset its 9.99 - 19.99 that's what I paid for mine because it stated I got it in Staples.

I also know and Eli tells me this there are such thing as 1/2 cent per minute calling cards. That's how she calls me but I have yet to investigate how to get one here. So search around.

Good luck and keep us posted on this wonderful love story.

* Sin is sin. Careful what comes across your lips & out your finger tips!!!
* We are all the Body of Christ. Let's treat each other as such, with the same respect we give to HIM!!
* Relationship advice: DO NOT make someone a PRIORITY, when they ONLY make you an OPTION!!
* A woman's heart should be so lost in God, that a man has to seek HIM in order to find her!!

Thank You very much everyone. The problem is regarding skype is the lack of internet for her. So right now it has to be limited. I have some emails in my mailbox here, but it is not allowing me to read them. So I cant answer them.

Beloved Dennis,


I have used SKYPE as well. I have
never used a calling card. I would
google to find cheap calling cards.

Sounds like the LORD is working the details out
for you. Lean on HIM and TRUST in HIM completely.
Continue to praise HIM as well as prays to HIM.

With Great Love & Blessings,
