Name: Charles and DeLois Rivers
Years Married: 20 years
I [DeLois] am very certain the Lord supernaturally brought me and my husband together. Both of us had been married before and were single for five years. My husband, Charles, was a Elder at another church and I am an evangelist.
We were seeking the Lord for a mate and God began to deal with me in a series of dreams to visit the church where my husband attended. It was a challenge for me because I kept dismissing the dreams as simply just a dream.
Finally after several months the Lord began to chastise me for not being obedient. When I sought the Lord more, He told me to visit this church because He wanted to perform a miracle for me. Well, I did visit but only twice and I didn't like the service and refused to go back.
The Lord began to deal a little more severely with me and I went back for a few months. The church had about 300 members and I never saw my husband. Then I attended one of their noon services and had to sit across from Charles and the Lord said to me Behold you husband That was just the start of God dealing with me.
