Sarah Neal and Nate
How We Met
Nate and I first met at Redeemer Church at a college gathering. This meeting was hyped up by one of our good friends Odaro Aisueni as he is the one who introduced us. Some time during the summer before I met Nate, Odaro stopped me and told me that I was created to marry his best friend Nate (jokingly, but not). I was planning on staying in Lubbock, Texas for only the summer, but when I decided to stay for the fall, Odaro convinced me to go on one date with his friend named Nate he had told me about all summer! So Tuesday September 6th, 2016 we finally met after the service. A year and a couple months later Odaro’s prophesy took a step to becoming true! Great job Odaro!
How He Asked
Nate told me we were going to his favorite ranch to go quail hunting for the weekend. He asked me to stop by a friend’s house to grab a package and as I pulled in, all of my family and friends were there to surprise and greet me for the best day of my life!
My girl friends got me ready, blindfolded me, and took me to the top of the hill (Nate’s favorite spot on the entire ranch!).
Next thing I know, Nate is circling me in a HELICOPTER and lands on the hill! He got out, read my favorite chapter of the bible (Romans 6) and asked me to marry him!
We celebrated with all of our family and friends in Canadian, Texas! I am so thankful to God for Nate and the way He has lavishly loved me through him. The gospel is sweeter every day of engagement, and I cannot wait to be Nate’s bride!
