This weekend was one that will be remembered for a while in our family. My (Curtis') sister, Megan, got engaged on Friday! Her fiance, Joe, flew down to Disney (where she is doing an internship) to surprise her and propose. She was totally caught off guard and was thrilled at the proposal. My parents were able to fly down and be there with both of them. They had a great weekend and were able to have a lot of fun celebrating their new engagement! We are both very excited for them as they start their lives together. :)
Curtis celebrated his 25th birthday on Saturday. I (Curtis) played in the seminary basketball tournament in the morning and then spent the day with Margaret opening gifts and relaxing. I had some great gifts from friends and family, and we spent some time enjoying them, especially Rock Band 2 that Margaret got me. We then went out to eat that night and then watched a movie. Margaret even made a wonderful birthday cake for me that was delicious (the rose was for her though ;)! It was a great birthday and we all had a great time.
On Sunday, we had the privilege of seeing our new Senior Pastor at the Kirk-of-the-Hills. Mark Kuiper and his family worshipped with us as he preached in the morning services. We then had a congregational meeting that night and elected him as the next senior pastor. We’re both very excited to see how the Lord has provided for our church, especially since we haven’t had a senior pastor in 2 ½ years! Whether we are here to see him in action or not, we look forward to seeing how God uses this man and his family to do great things!
So, this was a big weekend for us! We’re thankful for the weekend and are looking forward to seeing how God continues to work in the coming months!
