During the recent power outage due to freezing rain that left parts of New Brunswick without power for as long as eight days, KV fed some of the linesmen who were working in their area. Hats off to Kim Clarke and the ladies who seized this opportunity for “a cup of cold water” ministry.
The General Superintendent will be back in our district in mid February as she and the DBA move forward on the DS search and selection process. This is a matter of high significance and your prayers for wisdom are requested. We all have our opinions but I believe the Master has a plan. This we must seek. Thanks for praying.
The Jonesport church held a Christmas drama last Sunday night with the title Hark the Angel Sang Off Key. Great participation and community response. Hats off to the Jonesport crew.

Gloria turned 70 last week and Troy, Lisa, Kristi and I took her out for a very nice dinner to celebrate. She has been a great blessing to me and a true partner in ministry across these years.
