Message from Pastor Mandy
Installation Date change
Greetings Beloved Church,
I pray you are well and enjoying your summer. I am eager to begin my ministry with all of you. I was scheduled to be installed at AES on July 11th, but plans have since changed and my new installation date will be August 15th. The reason being is that our son is ready to come home! We have been in the international adoption process for three years now, and we are finally able to travel to Mumbai to bring our son, Elijah Yash, home! We are beyond excited and give all thanks to God for His sovereignty throughout this process.
Elijah Yash is two years old. We are very excited to introduce him to everyone, but will need some time once we are back to adjust to life as a family of five. Elijah has never been outside of the orphanage. He will need time to adjust and to bond with us. It is vital that we keep him with us for as long as possible and not have other caregivers in order for him to bond properly with us. We will also need time to bring him to doctor appointments etc. once we are back.
I give thanks for your flexibility with my new start date and your willingness to adapt. I am thankful to have been called to serve a parish that believes in the importance of family and has already shown that by embracing mine as we grow from four to five. Thank you for your support and prayers!
I will continue to pray for you and cannot wait to meet you all and introduce you to my wonderful family. I am excited to do ministry with you and grow in faith. I will see you in August! Be well.
Pastor Mandy France
