Wedding Bells for Stephanie
We have the
joy to announce that Stephanie is engaged to be married to Jérémie Savard on
December 18th. Jérémie is originally
from our area and is a recent graduate of Northland Baptist Bible College. We have known his family for over twenty
years. Jérémie began studies at Université
Laval here in Québec City this week and Stephanie is finishing up a few correspondence
classes towards her counseling degree from BJU.
In the short term, she also plans to continue studies at Université
Laval. It is their desire to be a part of the
ministry team in the work here. This of
course, is very exciting and encouraging for us! Do pray that God will direct in all that goes
with planning a Christian wedding here in Québec and that His name will be
glorified through it all.
Update on Catherine
health situation still has not stabilized enough for her to resume studies at
BJU. In fact, things recently took a
turn for the worse when she had seizures almost every day for a week. This forced her to give up the job as a sales
clerk but the door has opened as part-time babysitter for the Clancy's, a
missionary family with IFM that has just arrived to begin their one-year of
language study here. Since they are
living in our church "apartment", Catherine is close by when babysitting. After that really bad week, she was tested
again at the Montreal Neurological Institute. We are thankful to Pastor and Mrs. Robert Lortie for providing a place
for Melanie and the girls to stay during those few days. Please continue to pray for Catherine as she
works through all of this. This month
she will officially lose her driver's license.
She is currently doing very well but is looking forward to some
resolution of the situation. You may
send her a note of encouragement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update on Renovations
renovations of our main auditorium have been progressing very well. Do pray for the official reopening that will
take place on Sunday, September 5th. We are planning special services with guest speaker Pierre Plante who is
a veteran Québec pastor and a dear friend. There will also be a special meal. We expect visitors, including some of the guys who installed the carpet! Do pray for us as we finish up last minute
details. Pray especially that God will
be glorified through the clear preaching of the Gospel.
