A few years ago my friend Amber started corresponding with Peter online.
Last year, she went to Nigeria and met him in real life.
She stayed with his family.
Got to know them.
Peter's been working on getting his documents in order to get a visa to come to the U.S.
But Amber didn't say a word when he arrived.
She just brought him over for Thanksgiving dinner a few days later.
Just over a week ago, in church, Peter was sitting alone and Amber's friend nudges her to tell her she should go talk to him. He's from Nigeria and since she's been there, they'd have something in common to talk about. And how random is it that a Nigerian would come to such a tiny town in the middle of nowhere? Ha ha.
Thursday, I got a text from Amber saying that she's getting married on Monday night. What?!
We wish them all the love in the world and many happy years together.
