Pastor Ray's Blog

January 4, 2017

I began my last blog by exclaiming, “Life is full,” and it has been!

On December 23rd, Judy and I were thankful to receive home our eldest daughter, Ashley, and her husband, Colin, and our second daughter, Alanna, with her husband, Benoit.  Our youngest, Alyssa, is settling with us in New Westminster.  It was the first time that we were together as an immediate family over the Christmas season in three years.  And, of course, it was a tremendous joy to introduce them to our Willingdon Church family.

Our youngest daughter, Alyssa, returned home after five years in Montreal.  She is finding her way in her professional life and integrating into the Willingdon family.  Our second daughter marries on Oct. 30th.  In fact, as I write, Judy and Alyssa are in Montreal to assist Alanna in wedding preparations.  I will follow them next week.  Judy and I are blessed with aging parents on both sides of the family that require our attention; our family is growing through marriage; and we are preparing to move to New Westminster.
