Bouma’s grieving mother, Rachel Byker Bouma, took to Facebook to asked for prayers for her and Wesson’s families.

“(Rebekah Bouma) is with the Lord that she loved too deeply and so joyfully and she is with her husband of just one day, Austin Wesson, whom she loved with all her heart,” Rachel wrote. “We thank God that they are together while grieving their loss so very deeply.”

           

Speaking, Rachel said her daughter met Wesson while on separate Christian missions this year and spent much of their time getting to know one another on FaceTime.

“They were very much in love,” John Bouma, Rebekah’s dad, said of the new couple. “There was no doubt whatsoever that their love was the real thing.

“They both loved the Lord – they wanted to be the hands and feet of Jesus.”
