This past weekend my wife and I along with 8 others from our Grace Bible Family had the privilege of attending Jeremy and Annie Salazar’s wedding. We had a great time on the trip. Pictured below, from left to right, Pastor Wesley and his wife Paulette of Pine Hill Church (our partner church on the Navajo Reservation) Casey and I, Benny and Tinna Hood, Jeff and Amy Crelia, and Troy, Connie, Alex and Ashley Applegate.
Jeremy is one of our closest friends from Pine Hill Church. I’ve known Jeremy and his family for a long time now. I was honored to baptize him back in 2009, pictured below.
In addition to getting to know Jeremy on short term trips to the Navajo Reservation, Jeremy, his brother Coby, and their cousins Kevin and Delvert stayed in our home over Christmas break in 2010. In the Spring of 2011, Troy Applegate and I had an unforgettable experience attending a Native American horse race near Shiprock AZ with Jeremy, his family and friends. They raced, we took lots of pictures and provided moral support:)
Jeremy and I have split wood together, fished together, studied the Word together. I know his testimony. He knows mine. I’ve learned a lot from him. Jeremy is my brother in Christ. I don’t know a more devoted Christian man than Jeremy Salazar. I’m so happy for he and Annie.
A couple years ago Jeremy left the reservation for ministry training at The Master’s Seminary in California. Since then, the doors for ministry have opened wide for him. Soon, Jeremy will be working as a full-time church planter in the Spokane Washington area along with his beautiful new bride Annie. God is so faithful!
Please pray for Jeremy and Annie as they begin their life together. Pictured below is their FIRST KISS, EVER. Yes, they waited, it happens! 🙂
‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:5
