It all started with a shoe box when young Pinay Joana Marchan received a Christmas gift from an American boy in 2002.
Tyrel Wolfe filled the shoe box with goodies for his Samaritan's Purse which was sent to the Philippines all the way from Idaho.
Tyrel included a photo of him with his name and address written at the back and Joana was the lucky girl to receive it.
Little did they know that the shoe box filled with treats will lead them to finding their one true love 14 years later.
Joana who turned into a beautiful lady tried to send a letter to Tyrel to thank him but he was not able to receive it for some reason.
The Pinay did not stop there and tried finding him on Facebook. Luckily, she was able to reach him and that's how their love story began.
They started exchanging messages and Joana opened up about the shoe box she received from Tyrel.
They became good friends until their friendship bloomed into something romantic and that's when Tyrel decided to fly to the Philippines and asked for Joana's hand.
Looks like destiny has done its job well!
