The Important Things

Sam's Ordination Service was last night.  It was so wonderful.  God had his hands all over it.
Before service a counsil questioned Sam privately, but the congregation was give a chance to ask questions during the service.  Here Sam is giving an answer and my dad is asking a question about who has the authority to start a church.

Sam gave a testimony of his salvation and his call to Mexico.

Pastor ask the Counsil (Bro. Andrew Bojie, Pastor Roy Harris, and Bro. Eli McTague, along with himself) if they recommend Sam for ordination.  They do. They boys in the front row with their cousin watching intently.

Dr. Harris gives a message with a charge.

Pastor Noel Cwenar gives a small charge and presents Sam with Bible.

The men of Gospel Light Baptist Church pray for Sam.

The Counsil and Sam's brother Mike and Uncle Alan, also ordained ministers, lay hands on Sam and prayed for him.  Gives me chills, but there's more.
Sam's first act as an ordained minister was to baptize Hannah.

Praise the LORD!

Can't Think of a Catchy Title

I'm so sorry it's been so long since I posted.  We have been traveling quite a lot and have not had good internet.  We are still juicing almost every morning, but the rest of our diet is not as healthy as I would like.  Turns out that even if you eat a steller diet, you still need sleep, who knew. :P Also, there is something about being constantly on the go that just makes you feel out of sorts a bit.  Since the last week in March, I think we have travelled 30,000 miles.  The good news is we are around 58% of our needed support and are starting to talk about when we will be moving to Mexico.  I am dreaming of a garden.

So here's some random pictures to go with this very random post.

Oh man! What's not to love?

Like I said...

I love morning snuggles, he's way too busy the rest of the day and the others hardly ever want to sit and cuddle.

My half drunk cup of coffee, still sitting on the counter mid afternoon.  Story of my life. :)
