On Sunday, April 28, 2019, our daughter Valerie was ordained as a preacher and elder in the Church of the Nazarene at Bethany First Church of the Nazarene in Bethany, Oklahoma. Valerie was also elected to the SDMI board on Monday.
We are so proud of Valerie and to witness her ordination, she has persevered and obtained this goal with grace and beauty. All the while growing in the fullness of God's grace and love.
We love you higher than the sky is high!
The following is a little of her story and the pictures of the celebration of her ordination.
The following are pictures taken by Carol Buse, Val's aunt during the service and of the reception, before and after the service.
My name is Vicky, and after researching my family history since 1999, I have found amazing stories that need to be told. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!
