God’s Gifts

by Donna Schoon - Support Staff

Holsby’s “Teebees” are a growing group once again!! Who are they? They are our little Torchbearers – children of our Holsby staff families. Currently there are 8 of them, but by the end of spring this year, they will number 12 (ages 4 and under).

The staff wives gathered together recently for “fika” to celebrate Cheryl Thomas and Cece Strohm, who will give birth by C-section this upcoming week (February 19th and 20th respectively). Thanks for sharing in prayer with us for safe arrivals of these little ones, and for uncomplicated recovery for the moms. Our other moms-in-waiting, Nivea and Danielle, are due in April and May.

Children are a gift from the Lord;

they are a reward from him.

Psalm 127:3

Children are indeed a precious gift from our Lord! And we have the opportunity to be reflections of the life of the Lord Jesus to these young ones as they grow up in this extended community of the Holsby family!

About Donna Schoon - Support Staff

Being in ministry in and around Holsby for about half of my life has been a true joy and I’ve grown in the process. My role is smaller, but it is still an encouragement to be a part of the whole picture – doing a wee bit of teaching, participating with students in the Österliden outreach and hosting a family group during the school year. Correspondence with Holsby friends around the world, as well as other contacts, keeps my computer going many hours a week – as does keeping our home open to those who want to come. Our family includes 2 children, 5 grands, and 4 great-grands (with one on the way). Wally is my husband, and Psalm 70:4 is our verse.
