“I recently contacted QuickBooks support after hours. To get the help I needed, I entered a chat with a QuickBooks Support Professional. The entire chat lasted over 3 hours because I had to save new files, change older files, then reload the other files over it. While waiting for files to load, etc... we started talking and she asked what Men in the Arena was. I told her about the organization and that the Men in the Arena Podcast was listened to all over the world. She told me she has a boyfriend that wanted to get married, but she wasn't going to marry someone who wasn’t a Christian.
She started listening to an episode while helping me, since she was working remotely from her home in Costa Rica, and he was in the room. By the time we were off the chat, she had listened to two of the podcasts and noticed her boyfriend was listening too, and very much interested.
A couple months later she sent me a message letting me know that her boyfriend was a regular podcast listener, had given his life to Christ, and asked her to marry him. She said yes, of course!”
