This Thank You was received this past week from the Beckendorf family:

Dear Friends at Immanuel,

We are so sorry we could not be there in Osmond last weekend when you held the fundraiser for our benefit, we would have loved to see you all and get to visit with you again. However, Tim's doctor visit the next day was a celebration, as the doctor finally released Tim from the torture of his back-brace. (Tim now has a new sympathy for the Victorian ladies who had to wear those whale-bone corsets.)

We really cannot adequately express the thanks and gratitude we have for everyone who worked so hard putting everything together and all of you who donated for our benefit. We are overwhelmed by your generosity and humbled by your care for us. We are so grateful that God has made you part of our lives and we always treasure the time when we are with you in person. You are such a rich blessing to us and we only pray that someday we may be a blessing to you.

Sincerely,

Rev. Tim, Lisa, Aaron and Andrew Beckendorf
