Ken and Ruth
We met on Sept. 23, 2013 and, as we spent time praying & began ministering together later that week, we knew God was up to something special. As our friendship grew we realized God wanted us to marry and to continue ministering together. We married at New Beginnings Worship Center Nov. 13th.
