Congratulations Dawit and Hiwot!

A year ago we had a special guest to Austin, Dawit Kassaye, who was the FH Zeway director. Dawit is from Addis Ababa and it was his first trip to the U.S. He blessed many by his prayers, wisdom, and compassion for the poor.

In August 2010, Dawit decided to attend Denver Theological Seminary and after arriving in the U.S., re-acquainted himself with an old friend, Hiwot Alayew. She lived in Minneapolis, but that certainly didn't stop them from falling in love!

Dawit and Hiwot married today in Minneapolis and Hiwot will be joining Dawit in Denver so that he can finish his graduate work. Congratulations Dawit and Hiwot! Pray for God to richly bless their marriage!

Tom Sanchez, Global Outreach Pastor of Grace spoke at the reception.

Dawit, always mindful of the poor, shared about the drought in Africa during the reception, and made a call to action to his guests to care for the poor during his wedding speech. That is Dawit.
