  1. Thanks for sharing your year (2012) with us, Adriane. Blessings on 2013 – in Christ! Thanks for your fine and faithful work for the LW. (I almost became your best friend’s pastor in 2012 and lived in God’s country, Iowa!) I wasn’t thinking straight at the time! Pastor Gary Zieroth

    1. Yeah, what were you thinking not moving to Iowa?! 🙂 I was bummed with her when you decided to stay put, but the Lord’s ways are best, even if they don’t seem like it at the time.
