Below is a final e-mail I received from Marlin Weaver who led our 9-member team from Grace on their recent trip to France. Below that is a wonderful note from Dave Hobert who is a Grace Brethren Missioanry in France:
"Hi Scott, Just a quick note to let you know that the Chateau France mission team got back to Lititz on Friday evening. We had a long trip home and arrived to no baggage, but we're glad to be safely here. We had an excellent time of ministry and the team worked well together. Thanks for the opportunity to represent Lititz Grace in France. I've included a note that Dave Hobert asked me to forward to you and the church. In Him, Marlin"
Dear Pastor Scott, Missions Commission, and Lititz Church family,
On behalf of the Chateau of Saint Albain team and the GBIM missionary team, I would like to thank you for your great gift of sending Marlin and the super team from your church to the Chateau! They were all such hard workers and got so much accomplished: painting, stone work, tiling to mention a few. Susie and I were happy to be able to meet them for an evening barbecue and hear how motivated they were to serve. All the work looks so good and we appreciate your partnership in mission for so many years through Marlin and Sue, Jay and Debbie, and the teams you send! May God continue to bless your church and its world-wide mission.
Dave Hobert for the Chateau and GBIM missionary team in France
