rain, snow and retreats...

Hi Friends,

It has been a messy weekend in Nova Scotia. We've enjoyed snow, freezing rain and rain - it has certainly made for changing of plans all around. Elizabeth and I had been scheduled to share with a WMS group in Shediac, NB today, but after chatting with them have postponed that meeting until June - we should have less difficulty with weather at that point.

There was a teen retreat at New Brunswick Bible Institute this past weekend, and all reports are that it was a great success. Carroll Hill, an NCEM colleague of ours in Oromocto, took 3 teens from Oromocto as well as a small group from Fredericton. Our friends James and Ben were both able to attend, and Lizs' brother Jonathan took a van load from Habitation Baptist as well. From what I've heard it was a great weekend - both Ben and James are looking forward to applying and attending N.B.B.I. in the fall.

Please keep in prayer our Eastern Field Directors, Alan & Esther Giesbrecht along with their daughter Harmony. They will be touring the eastern provinces over the next three weeks, visiting and encouraging the missionaries in this region. There will be a lot of road miles and some additional flying as they travel from here to Happy Valley / Goose Bay. we are looking forward to visiting with them, they will be with us from Sunday, March 8th until Tuesday, March 10th. They will be going through some preliminary training materials with us as we prepare to go to our In Focus Training in Prince Albert beginning on April 20th.
