Kelly Meade and Andrew Rakestraw wrap up 2021 with an engagement! Andrew and Kelly met in 2017 at the GCI International Celebration, where they spent every day together, talking late into the evening about their lives, theology, and everything in between. Since then, they supported each other as friends, both knowing that the connection they had was valuable. They acknowledged that this connection could be a God-filled, life giving, and loving relationship during 2021. They got engaged in the Rakestraw’s backyard December 31, 2021. A May wedding is planned.A smiling young couple

  1. Wow! I am so happy to hear about this engagement. I have always been impressed with Mateo’s trusting God as he has taken on the challenges life brings, and I’m sure Kelly will bring even more depth and joy as they share life together in the marriage union God designed. Many congratulations/muchas felicidades!

  2. Kelly and Andrew, wonderful news. Having been a longtime friend of the Meade family both in Michigan and California, I am delighted for you both and please know you will continue in my prayers. All the best, you two!
