e-Buddies of the Month:
Where Are They Now?

Each month, we will profile one of our many fantastic e-Buddies pairs! If you would like for your match to be profiled, please contact us!

On a quarterly basis we will be revisiting some of our e-Buddies matches who were previously featured as e-Buddies of the Month. Each participant will be asked the same set of questions and their responses will be shared via this article.

This month we are featuring Emily and Christina!

Emily and Christina who have been matched since January 2006. Emily and Christina were first featured as e-Buddies of the Month in September of 2006. We were able to speak with Emily about her thoughts regarding her longstanding involvement with e-Buddies and match with Christina.

Why did you first want to be part of e-Buddies?
I first wanted to be a part of e-Buddies because I had wanted a pen pal. Whenever I would receive a pen pal we would lose contact in about a month. I felt that with e-Buddies I could stick with the pal by using e-mail.

What three words would you use to describe e-Buddies?
The three words I would use to describe e-Buddies are joy, excitement, and powerful.

How has your friendship grown or changed over time?
I feel that our friendship has grown over the last 3 years. We are always sharing what is happening in our families, churches, and communities. We always pray for each other and show that we are there for each other whenever something is happening.

What are some new experiences, memories and milestones that you and your e-Buddy have shared since the last time you were featured?
I think some of the newest memories that we have shared have been about my new niece, my wedding, Christina singing the National Anthem at a public event, and just what is happening in our everyday lives.

How does e-Buddies make a difference?
I think that e-Buddies has made a difference because it allows everyone to have a friend. That friend may not be next door or 5 minutes down the road, but you always know you can log on and e-mail him/her and they will respond as soon as they can. It allows you to feel that you have a friend right around the corner.

Congrats to Emily and Christina for continuing their e-Buddies friendship for nearly 4 years!
