Going over the alumni news this aft. Pretty stale. Some there cannot update but I still am able. The 04 cancer round set me back some but I'm up and running. Since ministry has been our occupation we continually gravitate to whatever beckons, which at this time consists of hospital and senior home visits.
I completed my Gr. 11 at the Steinbach Bible Academy in 1950, including several Bible courses. "Visual Aids" taught by Miss Twining was very beneficial in my 25 years of teaching Sunday School. I enjoyed as well teaching DVBS and leading "Friendship Bible Coffees" in several locations.
Since 1987 we have resided in Chilliwack BC where Bill continues his work for Avant Ministries, first as recruitor and since retiring, as an Ambassador.That takes him to places as far east as Alberta, Saskatchewan & Northern BC and yes, even Alaska. We served in SE Alaska for 30 years as church planters. In 2000 Bill was diagnosed with cancer but with radiation has been cancer free.
All is going relatively well at the Wolfe residence. Gladys has to measure her energy output since the aneurysm last July. She sings from time to time. We took the afternoon service at MSA Manner on the 4th of Feb and take the service at Menno Hospital on the 11th. We rejoice in His goodness. I have begun selling pre-paid funeral services.
I am Marianne's niece, Juanita Dueck (my mother is Janice). Marianne passed away May 8, 2004 after suffering from a bout of chemically induced pneumonia. This was due to the fact that she was diagnosed in the fall of 2003 with breast cancer. She fought hard, lost her hair in the process and still kept her smile and her faith.
