Accepting the Call

It is unusual for Peter Trzinski, pastor of the All Nations Adventist Church near Wapato, Wash. to be at a loss for words. But this was the case when he was ordained on Oct. 2. Trzinski was surrounded by family and friends during his ordination ceremony, but only after a pause, was he able to accept the call. Recalling that moment, he said, “The Lord really touched me.”

The day was an emotional high for both Peter and Saundra Trzinski because their daughter, Lisa, had traveled from Wisconsin for the event. Two of Peter's brothers were also there to share this special event with them.

The program began with a surprise song, “Thank You,” planned by Trzinski as a gift to his wife in honor of the day he was baptized and she was rebaptized. Because of Saundra’s influence during a crisis, Trzinski had met Christ.

In 1998 they accepted the call to become the Native American pastoral couple for the All Nations Center in Upper Columbia Conference.

Trzinski's background is Catholicism and he is the only Adventist in his family. Peter and Saundra seek your prayers for their adult children, Alicia, Lisa, Amy, Raymond and Michael.
