My Brother



My brother got married just a few days ago.  Some of us didn't think he ever would!  ; )   My brother, Chance, works for the US government and every three years or so he is moved to a new embassy in a new country.  He has worked in Mexico City; Lima, Peru; Madrid, Spain; and will now be starting his married life in the Democratic Republic of Congo....as in Africa.

While living in Spain he met this beautiful woman and asked her to be his wife.  Sofia is from Ecuador, but was living in Spain.   Last weekend they were married in Quito, Ecuador.  My mom and one of my sisters were able to be there for the wedding and they say is was quite beautiful.  My mom actually said is was like a fairy tale.

Unlike most newly-weds, Chance and Sofia did not embark on a honeymoon immediately.  Chance flew back to DC to await final paper work so that Sofia could move to the Congo with him.  Sofia flew back to Madrid.  It has been almost a year since my brother has been stateside, living out of a suitcase most of the time as he has visited family and friends across the country, gone to language school  (they speak French in the Congo) and completed more training for his new position.  I am sure he and Sofia are ready to settle down in what will be their new home for the next three years.   They will meet later this month and embark on a new life, together in a new country.  Praying that the Lord blesses them richly and reveals Himself to them as they live out their adventures.
