Getting Married, Will Be Away

I am driving (not right NOW) to Kansas (from Michigan) to get married. I will be leaving Sunday, but I work tonight and tomorrow and I need to finish packing everything. As such, I wanted to share that I will be mostly out of contact until about August 20th. After the wedding, we have a weeklong honeymoon, and then we move to Minnesota. So there’s a lot going in. I’ll check in once in a while as I get internet access here and there, but I wanted to explain why you won’t hear from me for a while. Therefore, if you comment, it may take several weeks for it to get approved, as I’ll be mostly out of touch.  I look forward to coming back on here as a married man. The wedding is August 5th.

It would be impossible to describe how excited I am to be getting married. God has blessed me profoundly through Beth. In her, I found compassion, determination, love, gentleness, and grit all rolled into one. As a team, we’re going to be doing many great things, I am sure.

Keep us in your prayers, share any advice about marriage you may have, and, God willing, I’ll be back at it in about 3 weeks.

In Christ,
