Nearly three years ago, Tekeshia and Michael met at an Image Ministry event to feed the homeless. Tekeshia normally volunteers twice a month but it was Michae’s first time at this event. Michael was invited by a childhood friend who happened to be a mutual friend of Tekeshia. After preparing sandwiches and sorting clothes they joined in a prayer circle before heading out. Once the prayer ended, Tekeshia noticed Michael looking at her.
Along the route to deliver the sandwiches and clothes the two of them struck up a conversation. Michael couldn’t help but notice her beauty and planned to ask for her phone number. They were riding in separate vans and he never saw her again that afternoon. Michael called his friend and asked about Tekeshia and mentioned he wanted to get her number. About two weeks later, he received a text with her number and made the call that would ultimately connect two hearts together.
