Ordination Service

This past Sunday was Ordination Sunday at Conference. There were 6 pastors who were ordained: Bro Zigler, Bro DuVall, Bro Duncan, Bro LaVan, Bro Pelton, Bro Young. Bro Cope gave the ordination message and then they began the ceremony. The pastors were ordained in the order that I listed them above. All six of the pastors and wives were standing at the altar for the whole ceremony and then knelt for the prayers of dedication. It is a great responsibility--may the Lord give strength and help to each one. The following are pictures taken during the ceremony. Also, afterwards for lunch mom LaVan had a dinner over by "our" cabin for the family and a few others. She did a wonderful job fixing Rigatoni and meatballs, a delicious salad, rolls (provided by Aunt Lois), fruit salad (provided by Aunt Doris), and the Cake was provided by my mom and dad. Thank you everyone for such a beautiful day!
