Big Weekend...

This last weekend was a pretty big one.

We started off by celebrating my parents 40th Wedding Anniversary.  I love my parents so much and am so grateful to have such amazing parents! 


We all celebrated with close friends and family at a local Thai Restaurant where the food was delicious...



Then on Sunday, Symon and I were prayed in (inducted/ordained) as the senior pastors of our church.  It was a wonderful morning, with lots of tears, smiles and precious moments.  It was extra special having Symon's brother secretly arrive from Australia for occasion.

After that we then celebrated Symon's parents 50th Wedding Anniversary!




It was a seriously amazing weekend, filled with family, friends and so many things to be thankful to God for.
