Filipina Marries American Boy Who Gave her Christmas Gift 14 Years Ago

You might not be familiar with Samaritan’s Purse, but it is an evangelical Christian humanitarian aid organization which offers assistance to people in physical need as a major part of Christian missionary work.



It has been the key financier for charity operations which gives great development in the source of revenue of vulnerable children, orphans, and widows. In addition, Samaritan’s Purse has worked for over 100 countries around the globe.

The Philippines is one of the numerous countries which is fortunate enough to be benefited from the organization since the year 1998. Since then, it flagged the way for one inspiring story of a couple.

Way back in 2000, young boy Tyrel Wolfe from Idaho packed a box of goodies and a photo of himself with his name and address at the back. The box was then bestowed to the organization which made its way to the Philippines and was received by little Joana Marchan.

As Joana was grateful for the present she received, she tried to send a thank you letter to Tyrel, but unfortunately, he didn’t receive the letter for some indefinite reasons.

Several years have passed by and so Joana was already a grown-up lady. She looked for Tyrel on Facebook and fortuitously found him. She sent him a friend request but it took a while before Tyrel accepted it. That’s the time the two started communicating each other practically.



It never crossed their minds that a modest conversation between acquaintances would lead into a genuine friendship that shortly blooms into love. Later on, Tyrel decided to visit the Philippines where he can spend time with Joana.

Joana wasn’t able to resist her tears after finally meeting Tyrel in person for the first time. She was overwhelmed by the feeling of joy and excitement. The young man believes that God really intended them to be together.
