  1. The Lord be with you Pastor Wilken, and with your family, pastor and congregation. It is a joy to see the way our Heavenly Father has worked things out for you all. We have great memories of our time spent under your care at Holy Cross. Keep up the good fight. We hope to see you soon.


  2. Kumm and Wilken! What a team! The devil surely shakes in his boots—not because of the men themselves, but because God has so engraced them that they are all about Jesus! May He bless all his people with pastors as faithful as these two!
