Tomorrow our family will be gathering with some of our friends to celebrate the marriage of Tonya and Mickey. Tonya and I met 5 years ago when we were working with Dry Bones, and I met Mickey through Tonya about 2 years ago. Tonya and I have walked through some hard stuff together and I am privileged to watch her grow and change as Christ works in her. She’d be quick to tell you how much she loves God and is thankful for what He’s done for her. She’s a generous person and when she loves you, she REALLY loves you. I’m glad to call her my friend. I haven’t known Mickey quite as long as I’ve known Tonya, but he’s a good guy and part of our family too. He helped us out last summer by speaking to a few of our SABBATH groups, and answering questions about life on the streets.
Tonya and Mickey have both been through hell, but they’ve found healing through Christ and happiness with each other. We are cheering them on, and look forward to seeing what God does next in their lives. Please keep them in your prayers.
Our friends at Dry Bones made these two videos where Tonya and Mickey share a bit of their stories and what Dry Bones means to them. Just showing up and taking the time to listen and get to know them, has made all the difference in their lives.
