Well Folks,
.
I am now a married man, a very blessed and very happy married man. 
.
The wedding went very well. There were, of course, some last minute things, but God was faithful, and everything came together beautifully. Thank you all who prayed for us!
.
I hope you enjoy the pictures. Rebekah and I thoroughly enjoyed going through our wedding pics ... over and over and over again ;-).
.
Thank you so much Brian for making sure we could bring the pictures with us.
.
So, as I sit here in our room up in Vermont, I think over God's faithfulness. I have been given an amazing gift. The gift of Rebekah's heart. I know I don't deserve it. In some ways it reminds me of the gift of life I received through my parents, or of Jesus's gift of his life to us. Somehow, I've been given a gift. All I can do right now is say, "Thank you God!" Life is amazing.
.
As always,
Love in Christ Jesus,
Michael & (now) Rebekah Thomas
Webmaster for the Grand Adventure III

Dear Michael & Rebekah,
This is our best marital advice.
Find an hour that you can commit to each other each day, Sundays excluded.
Read scripture and some from another great book. Talk together and don't feel guilty if your hour turns out to be a time to talk or have relations. But don't forget to read and pray. You will be amazed what a team you will be, and how many books you will read through, and so much that God will teach you.
When you fail, rise and go back where you left off-days ago.
We pray God will make you a great leader
for His Glory and Honor.
