Life here at Ravencrest presents many comings and goings. Roberta Nace our domestics supervisor has left her position to embark on married life passing the responsibility to Dawn Shields, an Estes Park resident and Andrea Forni from California who also served at Capernwray Hall in England.
Many of the staff and students were pleased to help with the wedding of Roberta Nace, our previous domestic’s supervisor, and Kevan Davidson on the 22nd of September. The setting on Solomon’s Portico, the Ridgehaus amphitheater, was beautiful and we accommodated all 215 guests! The reception was held in the Ridgehaus dining hall and included a “mix your own” tea bar. It was a wonderful opportunity to serve the Lord by serving others; to see Christ at work in not only the newlyweds’ relationship but in individual lives and all the family and friends in attendance.
Esther Friesen has been managing our kitchen since June. However, God has called Clint and Esther to His Hill, the Torchbearer center in Texas. Replacing Esther in the kitchen will be Dawn Shields. Dawn has been managing the domestic’s area and will be managing both the kitchen and the domestics department until God provides a domestics supervisor. Please pray for the Friesens in their new endeavor as well as for Dawn and our staffing needs.
