My wife and I attended pre-marital counseling sessions with Pastor Modlin before marriage. Pastor Modlin is very down to earth and understands the concepts needed to make a marriage successful. She made us work and understand each other better through those sessions and speaks directly on how to make it work. Pastor Modlin had her own family issues going on right at the time of our wedding and we were concerned that we may have a last minute alternate, but she had committed to our ceremony and was there for each of us. She made our ceremony fun and memorable, to say the least. We also recently had Pastor Modlin for my fathers funeral, after he had spent the last two years in a nursing home. Pastor Modlin would visit my father when she was at the nursing home and spent time with him getting to know him. It was that time and the time that she took speaking with our family that made the funeral what it should be which was a celebration of my dad's life. I can't imagine how it could have been any better and was glad she was there for us once again. Pastor Bev has been there for important times and has made both the happy and sad times just that much better. I can only say that she has gone far and above anything I had expected.
Randy is very good, and help us to find a good spot in Minnehaha Fall for the wedding. We also very appreciate that he came outsite to perform the wedding in such a cold day. Thanks !
