A Wedding and a Birthday

Nathan Bates and Esther Keyes will be husband and wife in less than one week! The Bates clan and many others will be on their way to Esther's home state of Pennsylvania to watch the couple exchange their vows next weekend. Esther also celebrated her 24th birthday yesterday.

    I love the Bates family. Their humbleness, love for each other and the Lord, and willingness to share the Gospel with all of us. Congratulations Nathan and Esther! God Bless!!!

  2. Are they live streaming the wedding to Esther’s family in PA and only having Nathan’s immediate family at the wedding in Tennessee due to COVID or are they having the wedding in PA?

    7. The person who asked about plans only wants to bring up the Covid subject. By this time, each individual person should do what they think is best. If, they are vaccinated or for whatever reason, they aren’t worried about getting Covid they should by all means attend. Those who are concerned should wear masks; or, if they are immunocompromised, they should stay home. By now we know enough to make informed decisions.

    1. No, they've been engaged for months.

    2. Yes they did. And no it’s not.

    3. No, a year isn't too short.

    4. The Bates, like the Duggars don't have long courtships; probably because they remain celebate until marriage. Nathan and Evelyn are older than some of the youngsters, like Katy, getting married so early. In my opinion, a year is not unreasonable given the standards the family live by. God Bless Nathan and Esther.

    5. Have you met the Bates?

    6. I think at their age and maturity it's less of an issue than if they were, say, 20.

    7. They didn't just get engaged. It was five months ago. That's how long we had to plan our wedding, and it was very doable for us.
