N ewsletter November 16, 2014 Church Family News Notes of Thanks Thank you for your prayers and visits during my recent hospitalization. I am at home but face a number of challenges and would appreciate your continued prayers. Frieda Martens The kindness and love - the selfless pouring out - a note, a call, a visit, a hug, a meal, a prayer, sincere words of concern and encouragement. God’s love shown through His people. I have been privileged to experience it in abundance. Thank you. May the Lord continue to be glorified. The Lord has opened the pages of a new chapter in my life. I will be leaving BC on November 29th to look after a young widower’s family of 3 and say good-bye with mixed emotions. Your continued prayers are greatly appreciated. You will be deeply missed.
