This is our pastor,
Dan and his wife, Nicki,
and their sweet little boy, Jonah.
Tonight is our last service with them. I could do several blog posts about this and I could go on and on. I am very sad to see them leave our church, but I am also very glad for them. I totally understand that God has a new plan for them...okay it's new to us and them, but not to God. I praise God that I met Nicki and Dan. I thank God for sending them into my lives just when He did. He always knows what we need, when we need it, even before we do.
I look forward to the message tonight but I dread saying good-bye to them. I know we'll stay connected through modern means such as facebook, emails and blogging, but it's still a bit sad seeing them leave. I honestly think I've learned more from both Dan and Nicki from messages at church to following their blogs than anyone that I've known with the exception of a few very close friends, my spouse and my parents (but you get the idea).
Dan, Nicki and Jonah, We love y'all dearly. I pray God blesses your new church like you've blessed the people here. I know we haven't been members of the church as long as some have, of course, some were there before y'all came, but I can honestly say that I don't think we would have ended up making First Baptist Vidalia our church home had it not been for your service to God and to the church!
Thank you for making a difference in our lives!

Besides you will be seeing us again. Are you sure about offering us a place to stay?
