Dreams Do Come True at Shelters

Have you ever thought of having your wedding anywhere besides a beautiful church or in the great outdoors? How about a homeless shelter?

In Springfield, Illinois two homeless shelter volunteers tied the knot at the Washington Street Mission where they first met. Interestingly, Joyce (bride) said that when she first laid eyes on Joe Reynolds, she thought he was a homeless resident...but he was actually a fellow volunteer who leads the Bible studies of the shelter. See the whole story here.

Although Pennies for the Homeless is not a shelter, maybe one day we, too, will see a happy ending like this one at one of our functions.
Dreams come true for everyone and can happen anywhere!
