I remember he used to send me so many
massive e-mails about Jesus Christ and God’s word. I used to say to
myself “What a cute and Godly guy”.
Time passed away and in August 2001, I quit being Catholic and became a
Christian when a coworker of mine shared God's word to me.
After that, Brian and I kept writing to each other for about one more
year, sharing God's word and in general talking about the Bible.
Then, last June 2003, as a coincidence Brian and I were not commited to
any girlfriend or boyfriend respectively, so, we started calling each
other often and later we purchased webcams to video chat.
Later, in July'03 Brian and I got committed on the internet, when he
showed me through the webcam the engagement ring he had bought me.
Then in September'03 I went to his city to meet him in person at first,
since he could not be able yet to get days off at work, but later he
I was very nervous that day flying to his city (it was a connecting
flight from my state to Los Angeles, and then to his city).
When the airplane finally landed, I left it and walked right to the gate
where Brian and I had set to meet and I did not see anyone similar to
what he looked like through the webcam.. So, I just kept walking around
and around with my baggage...
Then, kind of 15 minutes later, in the background, I saw a cute blonde
guy (much better than the one I expected to see according to the webcam,
he, he…) walking towards me and I kept walking too, till he and I ran
into each other and I said "Brian?". He said "Yes, are you Gabriela?", I
answered "Yes ".
We gave a big hug to each other and we got a very nice first impression
of each other.
He has told me that the day he saw me for the first time at the airport
he said to himself “This is the woman with whom I want to spend all my
life”. And you know?… I THOUGHT THE SAME.
Then we walked together to the parking lot where he had parked his car,
and we left.
Then, the rest is history…
I stayed four days there in his city and the time we spent together was
During my stay there, we visited the most representative places from his
city, had meals at different typical Mexican restaurants, went together
to a friend of Brian’s wedding, and to the Christian Congregation, met
his nice family, and he proposed to me giving me the engagement ring.
The last day of my stay in his city (Sept the 16th. ’03), he drove me to
the airport and it was very sad to say bye to each other, but he
promised he would be flying to my city every two months till our
procedure to get married, and stay together in his country got done.
After my first visit to his city in Sep'03, Brian went to mine three

different nice activities we made, we all had a formal lunch with
