“Powerful!”  This is the word that continues to come to mind when I try to describe my ordination service on Sunday.  I feel incredibly honored to have been part of the service.  Receiving your kind words of blessing and prayers over my life, my family, and my ministry was almost overwhelming. 


I just kept thinking these are my people.  These are my people.  I love each of you and feel so fortunate to have you in my life.  As you prayed for me, I prayed for you. 


I am so incredibly proud to be part of our church family.  A church family that does love one another, supports one another, is unified together worshipping God with one another.  Thank you for allowing me to minister among you.


Sunday’s service is one of those moments that will forever be ingrained in my memory.  When the hard times, the dark times, come, I know I will reflect on the service and be encouraged!


Thank you for your kindness.  Thank you for your support.  Thank you for your love and acceptance.  Thank you for embracing me, my ministry, and my family.  Most of all thank you for being God’s Church.
