Thank You, Winnipeg!

Serena - Winnipeg

Last week, I had the privilege of visiting Winnipeg, Manitoba, and enjoyed spending the day with over 100 folks (catechists, youth ministers, general audience) exploring The Bible Blueprint! It’s always a joy to visit Canada and I’m deeply appreciative for the warm welcome and hospitality.

I was delighted that a good number of folks brought their “young uns” along to the day-long workshop…nice to see young folks eager to learn about Scripture! One young lady (maybe 11-12 years of age), along with her mom, came up to thank me afterwards and she handed me this picture that she drew that she said she wanted me to have. Thanks, Serena! And thanks, Winnipeg!
