Written by

IMG 90265Melanie Edwards recently made her perpetual vows and what a wonderful celebration it was! Many people came from Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney and other places near and far.

Mel expressed that her day of vows was like her wedding day. She told the congregation that her groom Jesus is just in love with them as He is with her. She also said that her groom Jesus is just as interseted in them as He is in her.

Mel also shared a story about her 5 year old neice telling her own mother that she couldn't wait to Aunty Mel's 'special day' coz she wanted to see what Jesus looked like. Mel encouraged us all that we too need to become like a little child and ask Jesus to reveal Himself to us.
