I’m Going to Marry an Amazing, Jesus-Loving Woman

As of Friday, December 26, I am engaged to be married to Carly Anne Forsman.  She loves Jesus, hates sin, is crazy enough to want to be a pastor’s wife, and reads Charles Spurgeon and John Piper.  Ah, what more could a man ask for?

Many of you know that I’ll be in South Africa for the next 11 months, so be praying for us as we plan and prepare for our wedding and marriage over Skype, emails, and letters.  It will be an awesome challenge to do this, but something we know that the Lord has prepared us for and will guide us through.  Our wedding day will be in early January 2010.

I love you, Carly, and I long for the day to come (and it will very soon!) when we start the rest of our lives together.  I’ve told you before that I don’t believe people can complete other people, but I believe that God made you to be the love of my life after Jesus.  You are beautiful.
