Dear Scappoose/St Helens and Vernonia Churches:
We are so pleased that you have asked us to be your pastoral couple and join you in ministry! We look forward to our move and the time we can get better acquainted with you all. Know that you are in our prayers and that if there is anything specific we can pray about, feel free to email or call us.
Let me introduce you to our family. Kathy currently works for a local Credit Union as the Real Estate Lending Manager. Our oldest son, Joseph, has been married for five years and has a beautiful wife, Cari and together they have a new baby girl, our first grandchild! Her name is Miriam. Joseph is a pilot for a regional airline on the East Coast, they live in Staunton, VA. Our second son, Jonathan is married to Sarah who is expecting their first child, a boy who they will name Andrew Joseph. Jonathan is currently in the Army and within the next couple of weeks will be deployed to Afghanistan as a medic. We certainly covet your prayers in his behalf. My mother Pat lives with us, has been with us for about a year now. She is not an Adventist but does attend church with us at times. That’s a quick bio about our family. We hope to be with you all just after the first of the year. We are so looking forward to being with you and getting to know you all better. You are all already in our prayers. God bless you all! We are exited about the possibilities for all our lives together fulfilling what God has in store for us.
With love and prayers,
