The Day After Call Day

Yesterday was like Christmas. The whole campus was buzzing with excitement. After heavy thunderstorms in the morning the sun broke through at noon. And then the fog lifted also for the seminarians and their families as they received vicarage and call assignments.

This is the wonderful congregation the LORD wants to bless the Tiews with: Grace Lutheran Church, Tulsa OK. And yes, it is the beautiful church from my previous post! We are so thankful and excited!

Pastor Beecroft came all the way from Tulsa to be with us on this great day.

As if this wasn't wonderful enough, our old friends the Hintz Family will continue to be our neighbors while serving at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Broken Arrow - a suburb of Tulsa!

Thank you, friends, for all your faithful prayers and support.

We are truly blessed.

Hey Tiews Family!!!!

Congratulations on your "call" to Tulsa!! Perhaps Chris, since Confirmation interviews are on going right now, I just want to ask you do you know "anything" about the prophecies in Habakkuk and Isaiah concerning the birth of Christ?? LOL..(I think you remember that one) friends from the Board of Elders send you all of their blessings to you and their love.....We are proud of you! Blessings,
