Kathy Villalobos & Dane Young
We met at the Keller Chamber of Commerce leads breakfast on August 15th, 2007. We were networking. We talked briefly after the event and agreed to have lunch to discuss business. God had something else in mind!
When we met for lunch we immediately became friends and the lunch lasted for 3 hours, of which about 10 minutes was about business. We discussed how parallel our lives were and about our relationships with Father. Interestingly enough just weeks before we met, God had put it on both of our hearts that we were not to date anyone. This just strengthened our friendship all the more. We became very very close, but only as friends, best friends! We grew together in the Lord lifting each other up, supporting each other, being there for each other, but again only as friends. We learned so much though our relationship.
FATHER IS SO AWESOME!
Kathy was released by Father to date in August of 2008 and Dane was released in December of 2008. Even though that was the case, we still remained just friends. We couldn't see each other any other way. We both always knew that when Father put the right person in our lives it would be just like Kathy for Dane or just like Dane for Kathy. In February of this year God gave Dane a very romantic dream about Kathy and did not tell Dane what the dream meant, God just told Dane to journal the dream and he did. After that on a regular basis when Dane prayed, God would clearly say to Dane, "what about Kathy?" Dane argued with God saying, "she is my best friend". He didn't tell Kathy about the dream.
In April Dane was talking with Pastor Larry from Gateway Church and Pastor Larry encouraged Dane to share the dream with Kathy. He told Dane, "You never know, she may have had a dream, too." Kathy and Dane had already scheduled to meet at Starbucks the next day and reluctantly Dane took his journal with him and showed the entry about the dream to Kathy. As she read the journal a big smile came over her face and she said, "now the dream I had 2 days ago makes sense." WOW!!!!
We both fasted and prayed about it to hear what Father had to say. On Sunday April 26th we met to have negotiations, you know to ask each other if we were ready for a long-term commitment, lay out some ground rules, etc. We both agreed that we were going to be a couple. Father put it on both of our hearts at the same time that we were not to kiss until we are married. It has been a challenge, but we are succeeding at it, only by the Father's Power within us. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Ph 4:13)
On Sunday, May 17th Kathy returned from a trip to Arkansas and Toby and Dane were waiting in Kathy's living room with the video camera ready and some music playing in the background. Dane sat her on the couch and proposed to her, telling her that she was Father's Princess and that he would steward her and honor her the rest of her life. She agreed to marry him!
