"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

A Birthday Invitation!!

You are warmly invited to join us in celebrating......Rachel's One Year Birthday!! (I know, I still have trouble believing it myself!!) She has brought so much beauty and joy into our lives. And we are changed people because of her. God has given us strength and courage to journey through the trials and uncertainties of the last year and a half. And we praise Him for the ways that He carried us through, and for how He will continue to carry us. Come celebrate with us!!   - David & Kendra, Ethan, Abigail, and Rachel Funk

These are the details:
What: "Come and Go" Birthday Party. We will be having coffee and dessert. We will light a candle and sing for Rachel around 7:30 pm.
Where: Abbeydale Christian Fellowship Church
1352 Abbeydale Drive SE, Calgary AB
When: 7:00 pm on May 27th (Friday)

One year olds have very little need for presents.  So, all you need to bring to this party is yourselves, please!! (unless you have been planning on a specific gift or if you have already bought something already) If you do want to give something, please consider giving to the *Compassion Canada Medical Response Fund (I will have forms at the party) Rachel has received some of the best (if not the best!) medical care that our world has to offer. But there are so many children who die and suffer from illnesses that could be easily treatable if only they had access to proper medical care. I am so thankful that we have the means to ease Rachel's pain, and it pains me to know that children are suffering all over the world without this. It would bless us greatly to know that Rachel's life could make a difference for another child!
