LET ME BEGIN BY SAYING how blessed I am to have Noelle Nygren — now GOODLIN in my life. We are actually married — the real deal. We will be ONE the rest of our lives, love each other unconditionally, relish in memories and always look back with happiness to these few days we got to spend alone. Noelle is mine. She is my bride, my partner, my princess, and I will love her until the day I die. Just a few days ago, I was talking with Noelle about how unreal this actually feels. Its like a dream that I haven’t woke up from yet. And it all began with the choice to live out God’s design, stay pure and make the attempt to put Noelle’s desires before mine. What a feat that has been! A feat I have not done perfectly, but with great effort, I made it to the day where Noelle and I said — “I do.” From the moment I saw her walk down the aisle to exchanging our vows to our honeymoon destination of the gorgeous Grand Cayman Islands — Jesus has ordained this relationship and made everything about this season amazing. The only way Noelle and I can find success in pursing a godly relationship is from the principles we were brought up on — the Bible. Credit must also be given to the men that are so active in our lives — our amazing fathers. They have tirelessly pursued the Lord to ensure success and a model life that we can follow after. To Bruce and Dan!!
So this being my first blog, let me say how excited I am about this journey of pursuing the plans and future the Lord has for my wife and I. We will be diligent in finding our niche in missions. Noelle and I both know and are confident on the calling Jesus has on our lives. Cambodia — here we come! Satan, watch out! Lord, we love you so much and believe in your commandment. We believe you’ve called us to Cambodia. Stir our hearts, O Lord. Stir a passion in us Father for the Cambodian people. Burden our hearts to pray for them daily. Father, we lay our lives at your feet. Direct our paths Jesus and guide our steps. Humble us, equip us to do your work, give us wisdom beyond our imagination and give us faith to see great things. We believe and trust you Lord.
