Myla & DeShawn

How We Matched 500+ Miles Apart

A year ago I went on a trip with my best friends to conquer my fears of roller coasters. They took me to Cedar Point in Ohio. While I was there an ad for Upward suddenly came up on my Instagram. I had never heard of it, but I was feeling fearless. I downloaded it and ended up matching with DeShawn. It was a relationship I did not expect or see coming, but I am really thankful. We laugh together, we have meaningful conversations, and most importantly we study God’s Word and pray together. Navigating long distances has not been easy, but it has been worth it. He’s everything that I hoped for and for the longest, I did not think it was possible, but God knew what we both needed and when we needed it.
