So yesterday we had a little farewell party for some friends of ours. They are part of our church, and their daughters (aged 9 and 6) have played with our children since they were born. He recently quit his job here, but was unable to find another... and Saskatoon lured him away! After 2 months he returned home to collect up his family and take them back to Saskatoon. It was a sad thing leaving church yesterday, knowing it will be a LONG time before we see them again. They are departing from here on Saturday morning for a LONG trip West (and North!). They are starting a new venture in their lives - new home, new church, new friends, new life!
We want to wish the Bivands God's richest blessings as they set forth a new path in their family journey!! WE WILL MISS YOU!!!
