As I prepare to say goodbye, I want to express my gratitude for the presbytery again. I give thanks for the joys we have shared, and the ministry implemented together. May God grant you the grace to continue to be faithful witnesses in this region. May you be instruments of advocacy and peace, witnesses of prophetic truth, and those who proclaim that our God reigns. May God propel forward your visions of ministry. May you dream of new possibilities and find the courage to make those aspirations a reality. I am thankful that Elder Kathy Terpstra will serve as your Gap Executive. She will serve the presbytery well—blessings, Kathy, on your new work.
