Celebrating More Than Summer!

Shirk Family

Last night we enjoyed a family dinner together at our place to celebrate several birthdays and anniversaries. Everyone was there but Nathan and Christie in Florida and Hector in Peru. We slaughtered the fatted calf and enjoyed steaks on the grill, corn on the cob and root beer floats. It was a great time.

The extra special component to the evening was celebrating that 30 years ago on August 2, 1987, we moved to Batavia! God has been incredibly good to us throughout these privileged years of pastoring here at Grace. What I am especially thankful for is that it’s never gotten old – I’m just as motivated and excited about what God is doing here as I’ve ever been. Not sure if I have another 30 years in me, but I’m looking forward to seeing what the Lord will continue to do as we serve Him with everything we’ve got for as long as we are able.
