    Throwback Thursday: Jeremy and Gala

    3 Videos on This Topic,

    Video 1 - This is Jeremy and Gala. They've been married 3 years now. They first met on a Quest Tour in 2013. She was a translator for us for two years and would never date any of the clients - but this real estate agent from Canada caught her eye.

    Video 2 - We caught up with Jeremy and Gala when he returned to Ukraine to visit his fiancé and got a sense of where they are now as a couple.

    Video 3 - If you'd watched the previous videos with Jeremy and Gala you have seen how their relationship has grown from when they first met, to when he went back to visit her.  This video completed the circle as we get to see them together in his home in Canada and they talk about their new life together as they talk with Mark & Anna Davis.
