Once Upon a Time Happily Ever After



On April 11, 2014, I married Sarah. This is the story of us.
Sarah Trujillo works on staff at Kamp Koinonia which I have been directing for several years. It was only relatively recently she caught my eye. My interest grew even more when I saw how much spiritual depth she had and how much fun she had living life. But because of the age difference, I did not make any plans.
But my sister Julie saw the possibilities. In the Summer of 2012, Julie dropped hints about me to Sarah and also chatted with me about Sarah. By the time camp was over, I was driving Sarah home, talking about whether or not pursuing more than a friendship would be a good idea.
The following Monday I met with Sarah’s family. On that same day we went out on our first date. It took me 18 months to propose.
The proposal needs some explanation. The first New Year’s after we started dating, we were unable to be together. So as kind of a joke, we celebrated Chinese New Year a month later.
On January 31, 2014, we made plans to spend Chinese New Year together again to keep the tradition going. I took Sarah to several places that day where we had been before—as kind of a
“greatest hits” kind of thing. When we got back to the apartment, I ordered Chinese food. When it arrived, I traded out a fortune cookie that I had ready. After dinner, Sarah opened her fortune cookie and inside was the ring.
We were married April 11, 2014 (41114) in the very small church building next door to where Sarah grew up.
“An excellent wife, who can find?”
Me.
