Omaha Ordination

We went to Omaha for a week after Father's Day to visit Jonathan's family and because Jonathan was getting ordained into Christian ministry! He had a meeting with the ordination council early in the week and then preached all 3 services on Sunday the 21st at his dad's church (Westside) and was ordained in the 2nd service. It was a moving and special time - as you can see, both of us were at the front of the church, Jonathan on his knees. All ordained men at the service came forward and laid hands on us, each praying out loud over Jonathan, me, and our ministry together. At the end his dad, the head pastor, prayed a final prayer of ordination over Jonathan and it was just incredible. What a blessing over us! The rest of the week was spent just relaxing and enjoying time with Jonathan's parents and sister, Britni, who had just moved back to the States from a year in Japan. We spent an afternoon at the lake house of old friends from our 'newly married' Sunday school class days - our oldest and youngest kids are each 6 months apart and we had a blast together out on the boat. Jonathan's mom took Britni and me to the Michael Buble concert, too! We had amazing seats and it was SO much fun! Thanks for a wonderful week!
