i .... F aith & Family ;fi~ Auq. 72013 Sioux County Index-Reporter I 5 Engagement Obituaries Daryl and LaVonne Warntjes of Hull announce the engagement of their daughter, Jennifer, to Paul Vander Waal, son of Eliza- beth Vander Waal of Rock Valley. The bride-to-be is a 2009 graduate of Hull Western Christian and is employed at Pleasant Acres Care Cen- ter in Hull. Her fiance is a 2003 graduate of Netherlands Reformed Christian High School in Rock Valley. He is employed at Vander Waal Brothers Dairy near Hull. An Aug. 10 wedding at Netherlands Reformed Church in Sioux Center is planned. The couple will Paul Vander Wall and Jennifer Warntjes make their home near Hull. Pastor's Corner nn,nga By Pastor Mark Heijerman, Carmel Reformed Church If you've ever watched HGTV, you've probably seen the show called"Property Brothers" It's about twin broth- ers -- one a real estate agent and the other a design and construction expert -- who take couples looking to move and walk them through the process of getting a house and remodeling it. Here's how it works. First the brothers ask the couple what they'd like. The couple then lays out an idealistic plan which usually includes a price limit, a house in a very specific part of town, a nice yard on the outside and a large open living area, modern kitchen and bathrooms, good-sized bedrooms, and ample closet space on the in- side. Next they all go and see a house just like this, but after discovering that it's way over budget, they move on to look at cheaper houses that have potential for beauty through restoration. Once one of the "lesser" homes is chosen, the brothers offer suggestions for changes and then, after the couple makes its decision, the real work begins. Most of the time, the renovation is enormously extensive. Kitchen cabinets are bashed out, bathrooms are gutted, interior walls are moved or removed entirely to open things up. Never are the changes merely cosmetic -- you know, a little paint, some new carpet,~andanew frig ~ instead, they ways radical, sometimes moving even the kitchen and a bathroom to different parts of the house. Of course, there's a price for all of this renovation; it takes money and hard work; at times the couple doubts its decision and they feel overwhelmed and discouraged. But in the end, it comes together.The work gets done, the budget is respected, and the result is always spectacu- lar. What once was a tired and sometimes dingy-looking house is transformed into one of those magazine-perfect homes. As I watch this show from time to time, I can't help but think that the "Property Brothers" process is not altogeth- er different from Christian living. Ask us what we want and we all want to move into great maturity right away. We all desire the beauty of abundant love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control and we would like it instantly. But then we discover that, to get all of this, there's a cost. And so we start with what we have and the renovation begins. Usually, the process requires radical transformation. Old habits have to be gutted; walls of pride, grudges, preju- dice and envy have to be torn down; new and good things from God have to be brought in. The process isn't always easy. Sometimes we get discouraged and feel like quitting because we doubt the end result -- we're not sure if we'll ever see the benefits of our labors. But when we persist and trust the Builder, the outcome is always good. What once was perhaps a tired, blah and lackluster faith is now something alive, vibrant and beautiful. Therefore Lord, let the construction begin! Janice De Boer, 73 (April 20, 1940-July 28,2013) at First Janice Ei- leen Boeve De Boer, 73, passed away July 28, 2013, after a bat- tle with de- mentia.
