It's always special when a close friend asks you to be a part of an incredible moment in their life. Thomas and I grew up in the same church, served with one another in the high school group, and traveled down to Mexicali for missions. One of my favorite moments with him was spent driving down the freeway the night I got my driver's licence (no tickets were given).
Thomas met Alicia at their college fellowship at UCI. Through serving with each other in the same ministries at church their relationship grew. I spent a beautiful afternoon with them at their former school as they showed me some of the sights around campus.
Congratulations Thomas and Alicia!
