On October 10 my younger sister Amanda (yes, we have the same name) got married to Ben. It was a beautiful, brisk fall day in between two rainy, cold weekends. Our family was honored to be apart of their special day. Since we were in Uganda and missed the last two family weddings, our children were in Amanda's wedding and Josh and I were master and mistress of ceremonies.

Congratulations Ben & Amanda! We are thankful to now have Ben as part of the family. May your marriage be firmly rooted in Christ. May you choose Him everyday so you can selflessly love one another. Trust in the Lord. When you do marriage the way the Designer created it to be it will be a great blessing. Marriage is one of the biggest gifts God has given us. Love you and am so thankful we could be at your wedding and with our family on a special day.
