Ill. Volunteers Married at Homeless Shelter

Not sure why, but this story struck me this morning.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Two central Illinois volunteers have tied the knot in the place they first met: a homeless shelter.

Joyce and Joe Reynolds were married Saturday at the Washington Street Mission in Springfield.

On the first day they met at the mission, Joyce Reynolds says she mistook her future husband for a homeless man seeking shelter.

But Joe Reynolds, who is a longtime volunteer and leads Bible studies at the shelter, says he set her straight.

The Reynolds went on their first date a month after that first meeting.

About 100 people, including the homeless who rely on the shelter, attended Saturday's wedding.

The Reynolds say they plan to continue volunteering.
