Joe's Wedding!

Joe and Laura were married Saturday, September 30th, in Chicago!  It's hard to believe.  
At the reception... the hard part is over!  ...well... at least for that day!
Joe and Laura met at Moody Bible Institute, where they both graduated this
past May.  MBI asked both of them to stick around, so both are working
in Chicago for the time being, with an eye on some sort of int'l work in the future.

At the rehearsal. Pastor/missionary Stephen Albright traveled from Guinea (West Africa) to
perform the ceremony.  Stephen supervised Joe & Laura's internship, last fall, in Africa.

Here's the wedding party just after exiting the ceremony.
(venue: Columbus Park Refectory, Chicago)

Thanks to all your prayers for our family, especially the newlyweds.  They honeymooned in
Cancun, where Hurricane Nate passed overhead two nights ago with some high winds
and rain, but no damage or wrinkles in their plans.

Will my son hate me for posting this?!? 
Only if someone tells him I did...   ;^)
