Long Lost Friends Connected Through Technology

“I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and the Son and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)

If you watched my baptism video, you know my seeds of faith started when my middle school friend Kayleigh started sharing the gospel and about God’s grace. 

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” (Ephesians 2:8)

After I moved to Florida, I spoke to Kayleigh for the last time, because we lost contact.

In 2003 during a father-daughter date I gave my life over to Christ. For years after this I would often think about Kayleigh and the lessons she taught me.

My heart burned to tell her it was because of her courage that she shared her faith with me that I accepted Christ.

Before and after my baptism I asked God for Kayleigh and me to reconnect. After my baptism, a friend of mine reached out asking if I was still connected.  I told her no. She told me that she was praying.

Says: God answered my prayers. I found the young woman who had the courage to share her faith with me back in middle school. Because of her courage I accepted Jesus as a young teenager.
“Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24)

On April 20, I started to look for Kayleigh. I started by looking for her in the last town we were together. I found four Kaylee’s. Only one reminded me of her. I left her a message asking if she was my friend from years ago.  I sat on my bed and thought. Another name came to mind! Meagan! I found her name on Facebook and I wrote her a brief message and waited. She responded. Meagan thought about it for a moment and come to find out I had Kayleigh’s name spelled wrong and she was married which meant she had a different last name. Luckily, she and Meagan were still friends on Facebook. 
I sat at my desk and cried while I gave thanks to God. 


I quickly reached out to Kayleigh and within minutes she responded. I cried again praising God for this answered prayer. I told her thank you for sharing her faith with me and because of her courage I accepted Jesus as a young teenager. 




A message from Kayleigh: Hearing that has completely made my day Amanda. I am SO happy you came to know Jesus.
Kayleigh and I talked the following Friday, and it was a great chat.

Thank you, Jesus for her words that lead me to you. Thank you for connecting me to my friend, Amen.

  1. How wonderful that you were reconnected with Kayleigh after all these years. It’s also wonderful that because of her you found Christ and you never forgot about her. I was crying when I watched your baptism video but they were happy tears. I’m so glad everything fit into place and you have your old friend back!

    1. Hi Martha, I really was a answer to prayer. I’ve been looking for Kayleigh for years. I’m so happy that she was able to watch my baptism video.
