Moving to Estonia!

A few months ago, Mirjam and I felt God tell us to move to Estonia. We don't fully know His reasons (yet), but here are some of the benefits for us moving overseas:

  • We'll be with Mirjam's family for the birth of our first child. It's much easier for a woman to be surrounded by her own family when she's giving birth for the first time.
  • We'll be living with Mirjam's parents to start with, and when the baby's born. They have a two-storey house, the whole second floor of which will be essentially ours.
  • My business can be run from anywhere....

Married Life

Our wedding day

Mirjam and I just celebrated our one-month wedding anniversary!, and so I thought I'd post about what it's like to be married.

If you've read my previous blog posts then you'll know that Mirjam and I have had a long-distance relationship for a while, and that when we got married it was only our fourth time being in the same physical location together. So in that way, married life is awesome! No more time differences (only being able to talk to one another as one of us was either waking up or going to bed), no more laggy video calls and no more having to type to each other online (now we...

Denmark and Future Plans

Mariager Bible College

So I'm back from spending four weeks in Denmark with Mirjam. I went over there for a few reasons:

  1. To see and spend time with my fiancée :)
  2. To help our case in applying for a prospective marriage visa (the more time we spend together the more it shows our commitment to each other)
  3. Mum and Dad went travelling around New Zealand for four weeks so I thought I'd rather be with Mirjam than home alone

We had a great time together, and it's weird to think that it's only our third time spent with each other (firstly in Estonia for four days last year when we first met in person, and secondly in...

In Between

Heart-shaped hands

The title of this article is one that Mirjam came up with when she started writing this, but I realised that it's also the name of a Daniel Kirkley song which is quite appropriate to our situation - two people with their differences, but united by love. I thought that was cool :)

This is a part two of sorts for Mirjam's and my ongoing love story.

Mirjam

People have often asked me all sorts of questions about our relationship. How do you guys cope? Wait, you have dates with him, how? Isn't it hard? It must be hard?! And so many more. And that got me thinking, how do we actually do the in...

Holding You

When my girlfriend wrote me a poem, I thought I'd write one in return. Then I thought I'd put it to pictures and music and make it into a video to make it that much more special.

The poem was written by me, and the music is 'Sweet Remembrance Of You' by William Joseph.

This is for you Mirjam.
