So much has happened this year! What a year! The happiest news is that our dear LaRae became Mrs. Matthew Cherukara! She and Matt, her dear friend and fellow Oxford Doctoral student (grad now), who co-lead a Bible study with her at their church in Oxford, England, were married in Oxford on July 20th!
I love this picture of them and Matt's parents, Tom and Diana. (Thanks, Rick, for the photo!)
Because of COVID, we could not attend their wedding which was originally planned to take place here, and they could not be married here since Matt is not a U.S. citizen. We watched it online and focused on LaRae and Matt's joy. We were and are so happy for them.
If you'd like to see their marriage blessing ceremony at the church, here is the link. It's a long story, but due to COVID complications, Matt and LaRae had to go to Gibraltar to get the legal paperwork for their marriage. This video is their sacred service in their Oxford church, St. Ebbe's.
