Local residents David Buenger, Ken and Linda Markert, David Shelton Buenger and Pastor Karl Biermann traveled to Midland, Mich., to attend the ordination of Michigan native Pastor Kristen Ulmanis, who interned from 2011 to 2012 at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Cuero. The group was reunited with Cuero native Curtis Brown who lives in Midland. Pastor Ulmanis now serves St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Casco, Mich.
