Wedding Anniversary today

21 years of heavenly marital bliss and glorious happiness . . . . and I should add that I have really enjoyed the marriage also. Debbie and I were married on August 8,1987 at First Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton, California, also known as the Pizza Hut. Rev. Ken Bemis married us. We drove my silver cadillac to Palm Springs for our honeymoon. Debbie is a wonderful woman who is committed to life-long relationship with me and life-long pilgrimage with God. She didn’t want to marry an American because she was scared of getting stuck with someone who would worship his career and not make it out overseas into missions and social enterprise. Pray for endurance and patience for Debbie as she puts up with me.

Jonny and Jenny Baker were married on exactly the same day as us so shout out to them also.


Andrew Jones launched his first internet space in 1997 and has been teaching on related issues for the past 20 years. He travels all the time but lives between Wellington, San Francisco and a hobbit home in Prague.


  • Congratulations ANdrew and Debbie – have a happy day. I am pondering the wonders of marriage today too – my grandparents who were married for 54 years before my Grandpa’s death in ’93. Amazing. TOday is the anniversary of my Grandmother’s death last year. I wrote a little piece about her if you wanted to check it out. But maybe look at it tomorrow. Today you should spend a lovely day with your beautiful life. Congrats again – have a terrific day.
