A shocking series of events occurred after a West Virginia woman walked into the woods with her boyfriend and a metal detector. As it turns out, she found an old metal box buried in the dirt – and she broke down crying after seeing what was inside.
A video of the incident was posted to YouTube by a man named Ryan Parsons. According to the Mail Online, he and his girlfriend Lisa had headed into the woods of Kabletown, West Virginia, for the woman’s “first real metal-detecting adventure,” according to the video’s description. However, things would not go exactly as she expected.
While the two were already enjoying themselves and even digging up some small relics, something quite spectacular happened. To find out, the couple tripped over a rather large object in the ground. They did what anyone would do when a metal detector goes haywire and began digging until they found the item that set off their devices.
You can imagine the duo’s surprise when they pulled out an old, rusty box as they freed it from under the rock and earth – but the best was yet to come. It’s clear from the footage that Ryan and Lisa were beside themselves after making their little discovery, but then it was time for the best.
Excitedly, the two noticed something strange. As it turned out, there was something written on the box. Ryan quickly realized that Matthew 13:44 stood, but that’s not all. At first Lisa thought that a different set of numbers on the lid, reading 1822, might be the date it was buried, but they quickly disproved that theory.
After wiping away more of the dirt and mud, it didn’t take long for them to realize that it actually did say “Proverbs 18:22,” another Bible verse. Conveniently, the couple had a Bible with them, so they pulled it out to see what the verses said. Beginning at Matthew 13:44, Ryan quoted, “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy he went and sold all that he had and bought this field.”
After Ryan shook the lid off the box to reveal something wrapped in a white cloth, he continued reading from the Bible. If you recite Proverbs 18:22, the second verse inscribed on the mysterious box, you can imagine Lisa’s shock upon hearing the words, “Whoever finds a wife finds a good thing.”
“No way,” Lisa exclaimed, just to watch as Ryan retrieved another box from the metal treasure they’d found. He then opened it to reveal an engagement ring inside. Just like that, Ryan rounded out the experience by asking Lisa, “Will you marry me?” Luckily, she said yes before bursting into tears of joy.
Of course, the surprise was well received on social media as the clip is now going viral. Even better, many commenters congratulated the couple and praised Ryan for his ingenuity when he came up with such a great idea. As a bonus they always have the incredible video along with a very cool story to tell their kids and grandkids as Ryan suggested.
