Will You Believe

Feb 10, 2014

Sheryl with Pastor Donna Stephens at Women’s Kick Off Tea, New Hope Fellowship – Vacaville, CA – “Believe”

Dear Friends and Family,

“I can’t believe it,” I said when asked about my recent engagement. The first weekend in February, I spoke at New Hope Fellowship in Vacaville, CA. Pastor Donna Stephens called to invite me in November, “Sheryl, your name has been on my mind. What is the Lord giving you to share?” Trusting God will fulfill His promises to us; I’ve chosen to focus on the word “Believe” for 2014. “Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill His promise to her.” Luke 1:45

Jim and Sheryl

What promises of God are you holding onto today? I’m trusting God for His will to be fulfilled as Jim and I join our lives together. God has led our friendship, courtship and engagement; we are convinced He will faithfully manage our married life together. Our wedding date is Saturday, April 12, 2014 at First Baptist Church in Davis, CA. FBC is my home church, so a private, family-only ceremony is being planned.  

Please join us as we celebrate our wedding and new life together at a reception soon afterward:

 Saturday, April 26, 2014 at The Bell Tower Club, 1200 Truxtun Ave, Bakersfield, CA. The Giesbrecht/Turner Open House Wedding Reception will convene from 1 to 7 pm.  See our wedding website for details: - RSVP there, too!

Thank you for sharing in our joy! Your presence is a gift to us; we are joining two households, so we need no gifts. Wise advisors recommended a wedding registry which is on the website. In addition, should you prefer to give a financial donation to help with costs of our Giesbrecht/Turner Bakersfield Wedding Reception, please send a donation to


At ICM, we are excited to share the Help Us Tell the Story Campaign to be launched 2/15/14. We need your help to tell the story of the New Africa; the story of God’s grace and blessing turning a hopeless continent into a continent of great hope. Please join us in sharing the New Story of Africa. For information contact

“If you can?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Mark 9:23

All my love,
