forks & festivals

For those of you who have been following my series on The Gospel, this is a short departure from that series to update you on some of the happenings at Arrowhead. You will be able to read the next post in that series in the next couple of days.

Liz and I have been busy preparing for the ANBC Men's Retreat and the upcoming work week in April. There is much to do in preparation for these events. There is a rental at Arrowhead tomorrow, we will be hosting Sussex Christian Academy for a one day retreat with their Leadership Class. This is a great opportunity as they have asked that we present the ministry of ANBC and NCEM to the students.

On Friday, Liz and I will join Phil and Gracie Welch in Halifax to represent NCEM at Jesus to the Nations. We will be there from Friday to Sunday and while in Nova Scotia will take the opportunity to visit with some friends at churches on Sunday morning and evening. We wish that we had more time to stop in and visit with some other churches as well. If you are going to be in Halifax for the weekend - or live in the area - drop in and visit us at the NCEM table.

A brand new "Quiver" has been printed and we are awaiting delivery of it today or tomorrow. If you have not received a copy of Arrowhead's Newsletter in the past and would like to, just drop us a line and we'll be more than happy to send one along! we have also prepared our newest prayer letter - and if you would like a copy we'd be happy to send that along to you as well.

This past week we very much enjoyed a visit from Lizs' parents. They took vacation time to come and visit with us, but Carl, Lizs' father, couldn't be stopped from working. We were blessed to have him build and donate a set of forks for our tractor at ANBC. These will be versatile and allow us to move things more easily as well as provide a stable platform for a counter balance, should we be moving something heavy with the bucket. we can't thank them enough for their kindness to us and to Arrowhead.

Almost finished, fabricating from scratch.

The finished product.
