2 Weddings in 1 Day

So what did I do on Saturday? Well, among other things I officiated two weddings! Dima surprised his finance Ivanka with a short beach wedding just outside of Odessa on the shore of the Black Sea.  After we took a few pictures on the beach we headed back to town for the main wedding ceremony in the yard of our church.

Would you pray for Dima and Ivanka as they start their new lives together? Dima is responsible for the youth ministry at our church.  Pray that the Lord would bless their family and would empower them for future ministry.
