Buddhi and Natasha met in April 2011 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where Buddhi is currently working as a missionary. Natasha was on an 11 month/11 country mission trip called the World Race, and Malaysia was the 4th country on the route. Even though they only met one time for a brief ‘hello,’ they started communicating online for the remaining 7 months of Natasha’s mission trip. God gave them instant peace in their relationship and they realized that even though they were from completely opposite sides of the earth they had a lot in common. Most importantly was their shared love for God and his people, specifically children. A few months after the World Race had ended, Natasha flew to Malaysia to spend a few weeks with Buddhi and his family and friends. Their time together proved to be God-ordained as there was instant friendship and comfort. As their love for each other grew over the months, God continued to open doors concerning their much desired ministry with children. Natasha applied to be a teacher through a non-profit organization based in Nepal called Tiny Hands International, but got even more than she bargained for. The night Buddhi and Natasha got engaged, the president of the organization emailed her and asked her and Buddhi to consider being ‘house parents’ at one of their children’s homes. Two dreams came true in one night. Buddhi and Natasha are currently planning their wedding which will be in Kathmandu, Nepal in October 2012. They are also in the beginning stages of building support for their future children’s home in Nepal.
