It is such a beautiful thing to see people whose entire lives revolve around serving others. Ian & Hope are perfect examples. Long ago, they felt the calling to lay down their lives for their friends, family and country by serving in the armed forces. Though neither of them would mention it, I am certain that they have both made huge sacrifices in order to faithfully fulfill this calling. It is good and right to honor such servants. On June 21st, 2014, Ian & Hope took on an even higher calling, in my opinion. They willingly committed to lay down the rest of their lives to serve one other. This is the power and beauty of marriage; the finding of your true self through the abandonment of your selfishness. I have no doubt that Ian & Hope’s marriage will thrive and be an example for many, for they have long understood the virtues of service and commitment.
Ian & Hope, may God richly bless your marriage. Thank you both for serving us all!
