To say that we were overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity is not enough. Our last Sunday with you was something that none of us will easily forget; and when Chris made it to Newtownards on the Tuesday morning, and we opened your cards and presents we were moved and touched.

It was a very special weekend and we cannot express our thanks enough to all who helped out on Saturday at the barbecue, and to all of you who came to share that last afternoon with us. Leaving good friends has not been easy, but Chris is now busy in St Marks, and Daniel is enjoying the challenge of Regent House Grammar School. Kathryn and Simon have settled into Londonderry Primary and are busy getting involved in Rainbows and Cubs.

We still have boxes to sort through, and many thank you cards to write; but this is a short message to extend our thanks to everyone, not just for our gifts and for such a memorable weekend, but for all your kindness and support throughout our time in Ballinamallard. We will always remember you all with thankfulness before God.

We are praying for you all and are sure that our God has someone special to come and lead you forward in Magheracross. If anyone is ever down this way, and needs a coffee, please call in. You will always be welcome.

With love and God's Blessing to you all
