Deep Water last week after the summer season and his broken foot issue. PTL for the 8 who stood to accept Christ.
Amherst saw new families present on the long weekend last Sunday and attendance and anticipation were both up. A new slogan and logo have been adopted “stronger together” and Come Home to AWC days are coming up this weekend. New sense of excitement in the air. Pastor Raymond Fancy says “Lots going on. Just sharing the joy!!:)”
Miramichi recently and in addition to the 7 children who accepted Christ, a young grandmother also was converted when she attended the closing program. A men’s support group that recently began has grown so much that a second group has been formed.

Yesterday I installed Tim Guptill as Lead Pastor at Moncton. This was the first-ever pastoral installation there since when the former pastor arrived in the 70’s, installation services were not a common practice in our tribe.
