The couple (pictured) who both play their club football with Houston Dash in the National Women’s Soccer League were not short of congratulatory messages on their special day from fans.
Responding to internet trolls via her official Instagram account, Masra who claims to be a practicing Christian said, ‘For all the congratulations, love, and support thank you. Erin and I feel overwhelmed and blessed with everyone that has reached out… Also, to the other messages, thank you too.
‘Thank you for praying for me and reinforcing my own prayers because as you pray, Lord please help Ella, allow her to see her sin for loving that woman, for respecting her, being faithful, honouring her, etc …
‘Know I am saying the same thing, my Heavenly Father, thank you for allowing me find my better half, for finding someone that strengthens my faith and allows me to be the person I always imagined. Thank you for teaching me what truly loving someone and others is all about, amen.’
