Spring has taken a long to get here this year. We’ve only seen snowdrops and some crocuses in bloom. And daffodils, in the snow, with a bit of yellow showing, looking like they want to open soon.

Mark D. Roberts We attended the lectures of Mark Roberts at Noroton Presbyterian Church in Darien, CT one weekend. He and two editors at Zonderman compiled “The Story of God Bible Commentary on Ephesians”. His talks were on Ephesians 4:1- 6 - how we are all called to “walk in the good works that God has prepared for us”. And how we are to humbly, gently and patiently bear with each other in love.

"Irish" Friends On St. Patrick’s Day, we served lunch at the Open Door Shelter in Norwalk, CT. Around fifty men and women enjoyed corned beef and boiled potatoes, cabbage and carrots. We all wore something green, and were Irish for this special day.





Women of st. John Church Marilyn and forty eight other women gathered the Saturday before Palm Sunday at the convent of St. Birgitta in Darien, CT for the St. John Church Women’s Retreat. St. Birgitta’s is a very special Holy Place in the Tokenecke area of Darien.






Easter Friends We celebrated The Risen Christ with Easter dinner in our home. Our Kenyan friends bought pilau and mukimo, two favorite national dishes, and our Australian friend came with Pavlova, a delicious dessert. And John baked lemon pies!




Please pray with us

Lord, thank You for bringing
Grace into our lives.
It is only with Your Grace that we can
discover our talents and utilize them
to bring good into the world.
May Your Grace always illumine
our hearts and shine through us in
service to all Your children.
