Our Story

Jaanay and Asiko Will Join As One

Amidst the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and other uncertainties, Jaanay and Asiko developed a close relationship over the summer. Aware of the inevitable separation that awaited them due to their respective plans, they opted to keep the development of their relationship low-key. Prior to Asikos departure for university in China, Jaanay, expressed her affection to him in a heartfelt love letter. Two years later, upon returning home to Texas, Asiko stumbled upon the long-forgotten letter tucked away in a pocket of his suitcase. This discovery reignited their romance, and this time, fate aligned in their favor, as both their families were leaving Texas for the East Coast. Additionally, Asiko had to head to New York to complete his degree, while Jaanay pursued her career in modeling and academics there as well. The couple subsequently moved in together and on October 30th, they sealed their commitment to one another with an engagement. Despite the challenges they faced, their love story serves as a testament to the power of fate and the persistence of true love.

Matthew 19:6 (NIV)

“So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
