I just wanted to send my deep appreciation. Thank
you for the touching and heartfelt farewell dinner
last Saturday. It was a sweet time. I continue to
be deeply touched by the generous gift of the new
computer. It is wonderful beyond words. And I am
especially moved by the decision of the Board of
Directors to name the Wesley Foundation Leadership
Scholarship after me. This is such a beautiful gift.
It humbles me and truly speaks to my heart's desire
to impact the lives of students in meaningful,
practical, and eternal ways. Thank you. Thank you.
Please know that you all have a special place in my heart. I am
heartened by the choice of the new campus minister.
I believe she is a young woman who will bring
vitality, enthusiasm, energy, and a great work ethic
to the ministry of the Wesley Foundation. I have
been blessed by my conversations with her.
Once again, thank you for helping me to begin a new
chapter in my life (literally), even as I close this
one. The past nine years have been a deep joy for
me. I have seen miracles and enjoyed God's most
precious blessings. And I couldn't have walked the
journey with more wonderful travel companions. I go
forth into the new direction God has for me and my
family with deep peace in my heart and hope for the
future. I know that God holds us all in His hands,
and I know His love supports us, even as He brings
new companions to our journeys.
Blessings to you all.
This is me, full of trust and hope,
