For our Pastor's birthday next month, all the families in the church were asked to help create a scrapbook for him. It took me forever (because y'all know I'm a procrastinator and a perfectionist. Not exactly a good combination...), but this is what I came up with.
When we first received our orders to [this base], we weren't sure what to think or expect. We'd been praying for the LORD's will though, so we knew this was where God wanted us.
The move marked many firsts for us newlyweds: first military PCS, first search for a new church home together, and -- oh yes -- first baby on the way!!! ;o)
Despite our initial concerns, everything has turned out even better than we could have ever imagined! We've grown so much here and are thankful to be part of such a wonderful church family ... our church family.
Happy Birthday, Pastor!
