House Blessing

SAMSUNG            Recently our PIU IT Coordinator, Mary Lou Carruthers, purchased and moved into her new home on Guam. The whole PIU family is very happy for her and we gathered at her home, with our friends from the Lutheran Church of Guam, last Sunday to celebrate with her and fellowship in a “house blessing” for her. I had not ever been part of a formal house blessing until I came to Guam. PIU graduate and current seminary student Rommel Carino led the service that included prayers of blessing and applicable scriptures read throughout the house. We are thankful that God has blessed Mary Lou with a house that meets her needs and is dedicated to the service of God’s kingdom.

We started outside in the carport and then Samantha did a prayer of blessing that opened the door and invited everyone inside.

We prayed through every room of the house and then enjoyed fellowship around the table
