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.
