You may have heard on Facebook that Becca and I are both engaged. If you saw us on tour last year, you may have seen my fiancé, Chad, playing electric guitar. Chad and I met at our home church many years ago. Becca’s fiancé, Bryan, is a talented percussionist and can be seen on the road with us as well. Our engagements were just 12 days apart, so we decided to join forces for the second double wedding in our family history!
In 1908, our great-grandmother was married in England on the same day as her sister! We discovered this bit of family history when rummaging through a pile of old papers. My mom was excited to find an invitation to the wedding of the two couples.
Our mom had always wanted to visit the church were her grandmother got married. Last June we got the chance while on our UK tour and had some days off to sightsee. The guys were on the road with us too and all of us piled into a mini-van, practically sitting on our luggage! It was so crazy driving through the narrow country roads to this small town.
It was just like a scene out of Pride and Prejudice. The church was very quaint and it seemed nothing had changed much for 100 years. We walked around and talked with some of the locals. None of us knew a double wedding was in our future. But that day, God planted the thought in our hearts.
Our Dad will finally have sons in the family. Mom is having a blast planning the details of the wedding with us. Becca and I are still scratching our heads, wondering how things fell into place so perfectly. Bryan and Chad have been supportive of our ministry for many years. It will be so great having them on the road with us when their schedules allow! (To the Right, Here is Becca at the church, holding her favorite British drink: Ribena)
I recently came across this passage of Scripture, and it perfectly describes how God has led the four of us, individually and as a ministry.
May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. – Romans 15:5
Truly, God is more involved in the details of our lives than we will ever know. We want to share this exciting news with you and thank you for your continued support and prayers. We are beginning an exciting journey and a new season of ministry!
