Charlotte walked into Harvest Bible Chapel’s student ministry for the first time and she couldn’t help but notice the cute guy with blonde hair in the back. She tried to pretend like she didn’t notice him until he approached her and introduced himself saying, “Hi, I’m Connor… and I don’t shake hands, I give hugs.”
After dating 3 months, Connor left Arizona for the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Long Island, NY. His privileges were minimal and life, to say the least because difficult. After six months Charlotte temporarily ended the relationship.
A year passed and it was Sunday morning when Charlotte was running late to church. As she was walking quickly through the parking lot, a handsome man appeared before her and said, “Hey, Char”. Connor was home for only a a few days before he went back out to sea for five months, but they stayed in contact, continually texting as he traveled the globe. The two of them had to be together.
While Connor was out at sea again, the two of them were doing the best they could to see each other every chance they could. When they both had the opportunity to vacation together in California for the 4th of July, Connor dropped to one knee to propose. Surprised and elated, Charlotte said yes!
