How a Christmas Shoebox turned into a marriage proposal 14 years later


When Tyrel Wolfe, 7, sent a Christmas shoebox to an unknown person in the Philippines, he had no idea that 14 years later, he would end up marrying the girl who received it God Reports writes.

When he prepared his shoebox in 2000 at church as part of Samaritan’s Purse’s Operation Christmas Child, Tyrel included a photo of him dressed in cowboy gear, and his address.

After Joana Marchan received the gift she sent a letter to Tyrel, but it was never delivered. But in 2011, Joana remembered his name and found a person with the same name on Facebook and sent a friend request.

It ended up being the same Tyrel, but because he had no idea who she was he refused the request. But a couple of years later, Joana sent another request, but this time Tyrel, who was still in high school, sent a message asking how she knew him.

Over the next couple of years, they continued to share messages and found out they were also both Christians. In fact, Joana was the daughter of a pastor.

The rest they say is history.
