Ben called a buddy of his to see if there was anything going on for them to do while in San Antonio for the evening but, providentially, that buddy of his was working.So he suggested to Ben that they go to a church fellowship that was happening at my house and it was there, at that fellowship, that I met Ben and Jess for the first time.Over the next few weeks Ben and I would call and text here or there just to keep in touch about how God was working in the ministry or to share an encouraging word from the Scriptures.
Over the rest of that year I would visit the Seewald’s every so often and have the chance to interact with all of the Duggars and get to know Jinger a bit.
However, it was not until months later that I began praying about the possibility of pursuing a relationship with her.
I had known she was a godly young woman with outstanding character and a passion for sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ but we had never really interacted on more than a surface level.
The 22-year-old Duggar daughter is officially dating 28-year-old Jeremy Vuolo, a graduate of Syracuse University who has played soccer for multiple professional teams in the United States and Europe. That’s correct — Jinger Duggar is dating an international professional soccer player six years older than she is.
Now, before you “Free Jinger” folks begin popping those Champagne corks, I should point out that Jeremy Vuolo is a devout Christian who is following in his pastor father’s footsteps.
Ordained in the ministry earlier this year, Jeremy makes numerous public speaking appearances and has a number of sermons under his belt — and on You Tube.(More on that below.) Here is a video of Jinger and Jeremy (Jingeremy?) together announcing their courtship: So how did Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo meet?Jinger reveals in the clip that the two met on a mission trip in May.“It was there that I really saw his heart and really admired his character,” she says.“It was after that that he contacted my dad and asked if we could get to know each other.” “I was initially friends with Ben Seewald and Jessa,” Jeremy tells I met Ben and Jessa Seewald through an interesting happenstance: Ben and Jess were in San Antonio for a few hours on a Sunday night.
