Jennifer & Andrew
Jennifer and Andrew were both involved and serving at theMILL in leadership and missions long before they met one another. In fact, they randomly met at Tuesday Night Dinner, a MILL small group, as just weeks before Andrew was preparing to transition out after his graduation from USAFA. Oh how we never know when lighting will strike. Here is their love story in their own words:
"That first night we met, we talked, ate dinner, played games, and talked more. After a few more Tuesday nights and other times spent with our dinner group friends, Andrew called me to ask if I would like to meet him at Fox Run Park. After a long walk and lots of conversation, Andrew asked if I would like to begin an intentional relationship with him; I said yes.
We haven't looked back since that day in the park. Only a week following our talk was graduation, then I left to spend a month in Nepal on a MILL mission trip. It may not have been our ideal way to spend the first month of our relationship, but we quickly learned to communicate by sporadic emails and look forward to spending time with family and friends, playing games, going to dinner, and enjoying each other's company. In July, I left for assignment and we continued our long-distance relationship by letter, Skype, and occasional visits. God blessed us with the exact amount of time together we needed (though it seemed too little at the time) and quickly taught us the communication skills needed to grow together while being 1300 miles apart! We were engaged during one of my visits to Colorado in November."
Congratulations, you two! We pray the Lord's blessing over your marriage and your unknown journey of adventures led by the Air Force. We are excited to see you continue to flourish in community, the very way that you initially met. Come see us when you're back in Colorado. Your MILL family will miss you immensely. Be blessed!
