The newlyweds spoke with The Christian Post in May about their relationship after just getting engaged. Here’s what was said at the time about the bride:
Bethke says the minute he spoke to Fenton, he knew she was a keeper. “In fact the first date we ever went on, I came home, and my mom asked me why I was glowing, and I said, ‘I just met my future wife,'” he told CP.
Congratulations to the young couple, both in their 20s. May GOD bless their union and continue to make them a blessing to others.
Monday morning update: Bethke reached out to his online supporters late last night, letting them know he would be offline for a while: “I’ll be completely offline the next few weeks to just unplug and enjoy time with my new wife Alyssa. There will be a few posts during that time with new videos, content, etc that I scheduled ahead of time before I left. Just FYI. Grace & Peace y’all!”
