Jon and Kristi's Wedding

December 13, 2008 by Paul Chappell

Jon & KristiYesterday was one of the most joyous days in our lives as Terrie and I had the privilege of seeing our daughter Kristine become the wife of a godly young man, Jon Sisson.

Jon is a missionaries’ son from the Philippines. He and Kristi met and fell in love here at West Coast Baptist College a few years ago. We were honored last evening by the presence of our church family, pastor friends, and relatives from across the nation.

We are thankful to the Lord for His grace upon Jon and Kristine. Their testimony as a dating couple has honored the Lord and their parents. Joining me in the ceremony were Dr. David Gibbs, Jr. and Dr. Don Sisk. Their mentoring in my life and their love for our children has been a precious treasure.

Jon & Kristi's WeddingAs Terrie and I woke this morning, our hearts were filled with mixed emotions. We were sad to think of how quickly time has gone by, yet thrilled to know that Jon and Kristi are following their Saviour. We look forward to seeing their lives bring honor and glory to Christ. The Bible says in 3 John 1:4, “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.”

Although weary from an emotional few days with the wedding, I look forward to sharing the Gospel in a few hours at our Saturday evening musical presentation, “The Majesty of Christmas.” It is a joy to serve the King of Kings!
