  • As many of you know, Billy and Yashmin Clark are here from Peru with their three girls Grace, Faith and Hope.  They are staying in the Manse.   They  arrived in the middle of the ice storm in January, and we were unable to arrange a pounding or meal delivery for them.  We would like to encourage them during their visit – they will be here till mid-March.  If you would
    like to invite their family for a meal, you can email them at
    Or you could make some baked goods and drop them at the Manse – our desire is to be a blessing to them so be as creative as you wish. We recommend you don’t wait till the last minute as their time with us will go by quickly.
  • Invitation to Exercise and Fellowship.  Want to join us for a brisk walk?
