Seth and Alesia Stevenson's wedding September 17, 2010
Seth Stevenson has been an honorary member of our family for many years. In 2003, when Randy went away to Faith Bible School, he regularly brought friends home with him for weekends and days off school. Seth was one of those who came to our house often. We made a practice of "When you are here, you are FAMILY" long before our kids bought us the plaque which hangs in our entry way. Seth was one of our first "adopted" sons.
For one of Seth's visits, he brought his sister, Brenda, along. That was a Thanksgiving visit, which got extended by a major snowstorm! During those days, the whole idea of Brenda becoming a part of our family was planted in Tim's mind! Now they have passed their second anniversary!
Because of Seth's adoption into our family, we have frequently prayed for a companion for him. This year God has answered our prayers, when Seth opened his mind, eyes, and heart to Alesia Pruitt who has been working at the Kentucky Mountain radio station with him for two years.
I was privileged to fly to the wedding in Columbus, IN this past week for their vows before God and many witnesses. It was a beautiful ceremony and God's presence was there. Seth and Alesia's home, ministry, and future in God's work are in our prayers. That's what you do for those you love--you pray!
Here are a couple of "fun" pictures. Yes, Alesia is going to be good for Seth, and keep him laughing!
