Sweethearts and 5 and 2 Ministries volunteers Fred and Lisa tied the knot Saturday at the water’s edge in Mill Lake Park. They have been together 8 years. Freddy Jr was the ring bearer.

The couple are regular volunteers with The 5 and 2 which ministers to the poor and the homeless in Abbotsford helping to feed them and find housing solutions for them.
5 and 2 is a biblical reference to the miracle of the five loaves and two fish, given in the Gospel of John (and additionally in the other three Gospels), which reports that five small barley loaves and two small fish supplied by a boy were used by Jesus to feed a multitude.
It is the only miracle (apart from the resurrection) which is present in all four Gospels. The idea behind all of this is we must always remember no matter how small or insignificant the gift may seem, God will and does what he desires with them.
