When a missionary living in Kenya began liking a female youth pastor’s photographs on Instagram to get her attention, there’s no way he could have predicted what would happen next. The two didn’t even know each other – and his unusual method to catch her eye had an amazing response.
The online world plays a big part in a lot of modern love stories that you hear about today. Indeed, couples may hook up through an online dating app, or a relationship between two friends may blossom into something more romantic while bonding on social media.
