The Send Off

Yesterday was our farewell/sending off service from our home church Buenas Nuevas.  It was a very sentimental time for Ruben and his Pastors.  Ruben has been a part of that church for about 12 years.  We both shared a little bit and the Pastor and elders prayed for us and our next phase of ministry we are stepping into.  The Melgars, who are the Pastors, gave us our pre-marital counseling and Pastor Otto married us.  Even though I was only there a short time I always felt very welcomed.  I know this was a hard step for Ruben but as Pastor Eileen said, "When a church sends off ministers, it is sad, but also so glorious and God blesses that church for sending off ministers into the field."
