Ethan Miller’s family has done…what?

His profile is plastered on Now, this career focused, happy-to-be-a-bachelor is forced to endure an episode of speed-dating.

Interior Designer Natalie Gibbs is on the dating circuit, eager to find “the one,” but she has strict rules about the manner in which she’ll embrace a romantic relationship. She wasn’t even supposed to meet Ethan Miller—but God had other plans.

Ethan spends a month each year in Honduras, offering eye care to the underprivileged. He senses a sweetness to Natalie that prompts him to invite her along on the next mission trip.

What’s God’s plan? Should their hearts combine—or does He want them to serve…and learn...from one another—and an extraordinary date night?
