Dial and Marthe's Wedding

Dial and Marthe got married this last week with 225 in attendance, some all the way from Haiti. We started training Dial two years ago for the ministry and finally got him married this week. It was a beautiful ceremony and the whole Christmas affair lasted more than four hours. Both Dial and Marthe will be full-time workers beginning in January and they really need your prayers as 1.) they begin a new life together, 2.) continue ministering to families in Don Pedro and 3.) keep up with Regina and I in Haiti.

Our church in Tamboril hosts 225+ for Dial and Marthe's wedding.

Exchanging vows and the ring ceremony

The best way to start a new marriage - in prayer.

O.K. I'll take you down the isle - but forget about accompanying another boy until your 40.

First Wedding Celebrated

Love is God's richest and greatest gift to the world. Love between a man and woman which matures into marriage is one of the most beautiful types of love.This weekend our church celebrated its first wedding between Aristides and Rosa. Believe it or Not we have another wedding coming up in a week and are excited for the example it sets to our church family and community. Aristides and Rosa have been in our church for a little over a year now. Rosa accepted Christ with Regina and a few weeks later, I had the opportunity to lead Aristides to the Lord. Both have been discipled, love the Lord and are growing everyday in His word. The whole day was blessed and I was able to share the plan of salvation with the guests during the ceremony. Great Memories.
