A Life-Changing Encounter

by Ashley Viloria

As you navigate through life, there are people you’ll encounter who will make a life-changing impact. For Joby, that person was his friend’s brother, Nick. Joby recently reached out to us to tell us his story and share how excited he was to find Nick after four decades. Here’s what he said: 

“In 1980, at the age of 20, I was traveling through the United States from Boston to California. As I was driving by myself coming from a summer course at Harvard University, a friend asked me to drop by his place in Chicago to stay overnight. I welcomed the invitation. When I arrived at his home, he was not around, but his brother, Nick, was there. Nick was so kind to attend to me while his brother, George, was out. Nick asked if I wanted to walk by the shore of Michigan Lake, so we did. As we sat by the shore, Nick and I spoke about God, religion, and life. It was such a deep and life-changing conversation for me. Later that night, George arrived and we caught up. I left for California the next day to return back to college. After graduating from Menlo School of Business, I left to go back to my country, since I was a student from the Philippines. Years passed and I never forgot about that night with Nick. I started to attend Bible studies and my life slowly transformed. Little did I know that one day I would commit my life full-time to be a pastor of a church. Today, I speak to hundreds of thousands of people and travel around the world and touch people’s lives with the gospel. I always wanted to share this news with Nick and I never knew how to get in touch with him. Then, Spokeo came into the picture. Your site truly helped me discover how to get in touch with him. By simply searching his name, I was able to narrow down the list by his age and home address. I was so excited to get back in touch with Nick after over 41 years!”

Joby – we’re so happy to hear that you’ve reconnected with Nick and were able to tell him how much he helped shape you into the person you are today.
