Tomorrow, Saturday, October 4th, 2008 is the long-awaited wedding day of one of our original Pilgrim Pals, Susan Bunts. She will marry Chris Wachtel and begin a brand new chapter of life. We extend our heartfelt love, prayers and best wishes to Susan and Chris as they enter into this marriage bond. We love you Susan! We are excited to see what great things God has in store for you.
Note: I know that Susan wasn't sitting around waiting for me to post this "Wedding Announcement". She's far too busy today for that. But...within seconds of this post appearing on PILGRIM PALS Susan had posted the following comment:
Thank you so much David, Terry, Vicki, LPP and all the Pilgrim Pals. Busy days for Chris and I...but we extend our heartfelt thanks to you for your love, support and prayers on our behalf. We are most grateful to God for what He is doing in our lives...and the people He's brought along side us to encourage us to have a strong marriage with Christ as our center. We pray that the entire day will be pleasing to God. That all our guests will see the love of Christ and unity and joy in the Lord. That all conversations will be pleasing to Him. All our love...Chris and Susan
Susan posted the following on her blog, Susan's Blog: Be sure to click on the YouTube video as well!
One of the fun things that my fiancé Chris Wachtel & I did in preparing for our wedding day was to put together a video of our lives. We stand amazed…as we look back and see how God concurrently and providentially worked in our lives to bring us together. We clearly see how He used events in our lives to shape and form us so that we are so perfectly suited for one another. October 4th, 2008 on our wedding day…this video will be shown at our wedding.
We want honor and glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the Author of our love story. We thank our family and friends for their love, support and prayers as we become one. Chris…I am so grateful that my hopes, dreams and prayers will be coming true with you…as we begin our new life as husband and wife on October 4th. May Jesus Christ be the Foundation of our marriage and first place in our lives. After Christ, may we put each other first.
We fondly remember our parents who will not be here to share this day with us. We love you and thank you Leo & Ruth Wachtel, Frank Bunts and Gayle & Joseph Lorenat. I love you Christopher Leo Wachtel and can hardly wait to be Mrs. Christopher Wachtel!
