A host of current and former missionaries attended the wedding of Ken Hoekman and Anisha Gohain, which took place April 12 at the home of Stan and Stella Williams in Sherwood. Hoekman and the Williams attend The Summit Church in North Little Rock. Danny Jones, teaching pastor/engage ministries at The Summit Church, married them.
The couple met through Hoekman’s sister and brother-in-law, who are missionaries in India. Hoekman grew up as the son of two missionaries and desires to be a pilot on the mission field in the future. Currently, he serves in the Air Force. A heart for missions runs in Hoekman’s blood. His great-aunt served as a missionary to Japan, and his brother currently serves as a missionary in India. About 30 current or former missionaries, including short-term missionaries, attended the wedding.
