Called to Minister

 As a child I was taught the importance of walking with God. As a young person, I was a bit resistant to fully render myself to the things of God but when I finally did, I did it for real. I meant it with all of my being..and I promised God I would do whatever He willed in my life.

Now, as I look back... I feel like Esther who was being prepared for something amazing. I'm sure she probably wondered at times "why me?", and all the while God had a plan for her.

Throughout the years God has been preparing me. He moved me to a different country. He chose a man for me who had this same desire. He moved me to a city where He knew I would have personal spiritual experiences. He gave my husband and I a child, so we would know about parenthood. He gave us a burden for the city of Guelph, and now called us to the ministry

 It's amazing just makes me think of  Esther 4:14, where she is told "...who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” I think to myself.. was I born for such a time as this?  We all have a purpose in this world, and our job is to seek it and fulfill it.

Starting a church is no easy task. I have been along my father side as he's done this. I've seen all the ups and downs. My father started completely from scratch but we are blessed to have 4 lovely families who are willing to do anything to help. I know hard times will come.. but I know that God is by our side.  AND we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!

To be honest, we feel honored, and privileged to be called to minister and we are ready to start another chapter in our lives.

Here are some photos of the inauguration service on Saturday.

I'm really proud too. Especially since it's Ruben. One of my bestest friends in the whole world. I'm no sentimental being, but I know he will be great. He's going to be a forced to be reckoned with. I know your going to be a woman to be admired and respected. Looked up too by those around you. I'm so proud of the family God provided me with. But I'm sad your going to be in a different city as me. Maybe just for now, or maybe for the rest of our lives ( who knows Gods plan ) but I'm glad God chose you to be my sister in law. I gained one great friend.

Shh, ITS NEVER BEING SAID AGAIN!
