I was pleased on Saturday to be part of a group of some 65 people who gathered at Beulah for the annual work day as the grounds and facilities are readied for Beulah 2017. Many projects ranging from raking leaves to re-roofing the caretaker’s cottage and a wide variety of other things were undertaken by the great corps of volunteers. The day was topped off with an excellent meal together in the dining hall. Hats off to Bruce Cheney for organizing the day and keeping the willing workers productively on task. Our new Executive Director of Camping Ministry Andrea Gunter and her family were all on site and involved for this very positive day of good work and strong relationship development. Thanks to all who participated.
- Last Thursday was the last day of vocational ministry for Pete Thomas as he officially retired that day. His prayer that morning was that he would have the privilege of leading someone to the Lord on his last work day. And he did! PTL.
- Correction: last week IMA referred to “Berry” Johnson receiving her D. Min degree – should have been “Betty” – the r and t are too close together on the keyboard for my unskilled fingers. Sorry Betty.
- Caton’s Island held counsellor-in-training sessions over the weekend ending yesterday. A great new generation coming on line to serve in this life-changing ministry.
I was privileged to worship at Kings Church yesterday morning. Inspiring worship and an excellent message from Pastor Brent were the order of the day. One of my strong take aways was “God, please forgive us for being satisfied with powerless Christianity.” KC is preparing to launch Kings Church HFX and Site Pastor Seth Fancy and his family have moved to Nova Scotia as the launch continues to ramp up. Onward and upward!
Peter and the team continue to minister in Egypt and will return to the district later this week. We are thankful for their involvement there and for the privilege we have to share ministry with the leaders and people of the Standard Wesleyan Church of Egypt.
