Are Those Wedding Bells I Hear?!?!

The only thing better than returning from your honeymoon to open all of your wedding gifts . . .

is returning to your storage place THREE YEARS LATER only to re-open over a third of your unused, unopened, untouched wedding gifts!

This Memorial Day Weekend, we made our way to Holdenville, America for an annual family reunion. As we've been planning and preparing for our move to Ames, OK, we've been looking forward to picking up "the few" wedding gifts that we temporarily left home when we moved into our HUT. . . err . . . eh em . . . pardon me . . . our Student Village apartment at SWBTS ;) You know what I'm sayin'!

Anyhow, three years can really work over a person's memory! When we opened Whit's Grandma's garage, we were quickly struck with the realization that we had left many of our wedding gifts behind simply because our apartment couldn't hold everything! Here are some of the items we'd left behind, but are now greatly looking forward to using in our "new" home in Ames!

Well, It's Official

Our immediate future has been solidified.  We are now officially going to serve as pastor of Ames Baptist Church in Ames, OK.  We preached in view of a call this past Sunday and were excited to learn that they had a unanimous vote, "Yes!"  

The plan is to start on Sunday, May 31st!  We will have to do a little bit of back and forth between Fort Worth and Ames for Whit to finish school and complete a training session she has been obligated to for some time now.  

So, here is our summer schedule:

May 31st - June 13th: Living in Fort Worth, but traveling to Ames on the weekends
June 14th - July 5th: Staying in Ames
July 6th - July 31st: Living in Fort Worth, commuting to Ames on the weekends
August 1 and beyond: permanent residents of Ames, OK!!

Any prayers are much appreciated!  We'll update as time goes on.
