Yes, you read that correctly! 2 of our very dearest friends and members of our team got MARRIED right beside a glacier bay in Alaska on Saturday! DJ and Rebecca have been waiting on the Lord to tell them when the time was right. They didn’t plan to do it this way, but once we were here, it just seemed so right. They told David and I, but to everyone else (including Rebecca’s mother who was with us on this trip!) it was a HUGE surprise!
Saturday was our last full day in Alaska with the Arkansas team. Scott had planned for us to go site-seeing and shopping. We went to Portage Valley to a BEAUTIFUL location to take pictures and look around. While there, Scott said, “hey, everyone, come over here!” Next thing you know, he had out his Bible, DJ and Rebecca read their own vows, they exchanged rings (that we had gone to help them buy earlier in the week one evening!) and Scott pronounced them man and wife! It was VERY exciting!
Alaska has become a very special place to DJ and Rebecca…as they are praying about and probably moving to Alaska to be full time missionaries sometime within the next year. With all the beautiful surroundings, and the special place that Alaska has in their hearts, they decided to go for it while we were there! It could not have been more perfect for them!
Congratulations to DJ and Rebecca! We feel blessed to call you FRIENDS.
