I met Marcos in Nov of 2005 but at that time I was too young to even dream of him looking at me. His father is a pastor and is friends with my Pastor here in AZ. My Pastor, however, doesn't know Spanish. My father translates for him whenever he goes to Chile to preach. As a birthday gift, my parents bought me a ticket to go with my father and Pastor to Chile in Sept 2009. I was friends with Marcos's sister from my 2005 visit. I asked her if I could stay in her house to get a chance to get to know her family. That weekend Marcos caught my eye. We didn't spend that much time together but I left him my email in hopes that he would email me. The Thursday that I got back he emailed me and told me he wanted to be more than friends. We started talking and have never stopped. I bought tickets to go in March 2010 but the Earthquake changed those plans. I returned in June of 2010 and Marcos told me the next time he saw me in person he would have a ring. I returned on Oct 9 2010 and Marcos greeted me at the airport with a ring. Our wedding is set for June 25th, 2011. Lord willing we will be married that day!!
