They're Graduating

Where did the school year go?  The time has blown by so quickly and now the future is on the horizon.  We have not known the youths for very long... but how quick we grew attached to them.  How proud we are of all the hard work and accomplishments.  Last Sunday the graduating seniors where in charge of the worship portion of the service, and it was awesome.  We pray and hope for the plans that God has for these young adults.

They're Graduating!!

After the service there was some great time of fellowship.  We got a chance to chat with everyone and even had a surprise from a certain dog that was not my schools mascot. 

Sophia and The Dog

Don't let Sophia's innocent little smile fool you.  We had to stop her from pulling out the dog's tale.  She thought it was the funniest thing ever.  And then of course the other kids wanted to do the same thing.

The kids and The Dog

The bible speaks of how the church is our family... And its times like this that you realize how true that is.  I'm going to miss a bunch of these kids when they go off to college.

My Ordination : Pastor Briam

One month ago (April 11, 2010), I was ordained in to the ministry at Rockdale Baptist Church.  There were so many people there that I was very surprised (I did not think that I knew that many people).  It was a very special day for us, and it was even more special with so many people that have played such an important part of our lives could join us.

Ordination Prayer with Eddie and Matthew

I thought this was a great picture...The ordained men were ask to pray over me (Here is my good friend Eddie). I had not noticed that Matthew had also done some praying.

Of course there are tons of pictures that I have not yet gone through... but here is a really nice one of the family.

And of course the pictures would not be complete if there wasn't a crazy picture of us. (I am sure Paola will love this one)
