Because our families are so important to each of us and also to one another, we chose to host our wedding in a family-reunion style weekend and as the families joined together, we realized that instead of a family re-union, in reality, God was giving us a Family New-Union. On April 13, 2013 in the presence of our families and a few close friends, we pledged our lives to Christ and to one another and we became husband and wife, as well as partners in ministry.
In 2 Corinthians 5:17, Paul teaches us, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation." We are living proof that the Creator's creativity in our lives never ends, no matter our age or stage in life. We are leaving for India today, Tuesday, July 9th, and will spend 4 weeks in Mahabalipuram as a New Creation in Christ. We would be privileged to have you join us on our journey, through this blog and through your prayers. And, as always, we would love to hear from each of you and pray for the new creation Christ is bringing to your lives as well.
On the road to India,
Jim & Susan Garvin
