GMA Week is Here!
Hey! WOW, what a great tour... Thank you Caronport High School, Walkinshaw Place, Boissevain Mennonite Brethren Church, Elm Creek Mennonite Brethren Church, and Bethany College for having me. It was great to reconnect with friends and family, and to meet new friends.
I’ve had a great week of rest, and now it’s time to gear up again for a busy week ahead...
