appreciation tea

Our fundraising Prayer-Walk-Jog-Cycle on Saturday, June 19, along the Meewasin Trail beside the North Saskatchewan river, raised over $3,000 for two new gospel tracts. The money continued to come in for weeks afterward.

50,000 copies have been printed of "God's Wonderful Grace to Bonnie," which are now available for distribution by members and friends.

This particular fundraiser was organized by Barb and Doug Jenkins, the parents of Mark Jenkins who died in a tragic automobile accident in July of 2000. The tree planted in his memory along the Meewasin Trail at about 468 Whiteswan Drive was the 10:30 AM starting point for this event. The destination was the Kinsmen Park, where support staff set up a picnic and barbecue lunch for the participants.

tickets


Scott's Parable gift certificates and family tickets to Blades games at Sask Place were given to the top four fundraisers. First prize went to Wendell Klassen who raised $951. Second was Arnold Stobbe, the director of the mission. Third, was Helen Doerksen and a granddaughter, Erin Neudorf, from Osler, and fourth was Helen Klassen, (sometimes known as Mrs. WTM), a key missionary in the office.

This was a family affair. The Jenkins whole clan came together, including a son and his family from Stoney Plain, Alberta, and some friends of Mark. The oldest participant was Henry H. Friesen of Hague, age 88, who rode his MediChair, and the youngest were the twins, Benjamin and Bronlin Klassen born in March, who were in a double baby carriage, pushed by their mother, Darlene Klassen of Warman, rural. There were adults and a number of children who rode circles on their bikes around the adults, and went extra distances. In total 32 took to the trail in memory of Mark, and to raise funds for gospel tracts.

A number of people said to Barb Jenkins afterwards, "This was so much fun. Next year we'll have twice as many people!"

Arnold Stobbe, the director, was thrilled. "We raised more than we dared hope for; $4000 is enough to cover the cost of printing two new tracts! Bonnie's testimony will touch many hearts, and a thanksgiving tract will be ready by this fall."
