Kristi Pollard – a fond farewell
After six years of being the capable unflappable voice at the other end of the line when you phoned our office, Kristi Pollard has accepted a position with CBOQ as administrative assistant. Kristi brought a steady hand and reliable eye to her position. We will miss her, even though she’s only moving down the hall!

This means that we are looking for a new staff person, though it will be for a different type of role that reflects the ministry’s current needs and future possibilities. We will post a job description on this site very soon.

Groups of Hope Training Day – Saturday October 17 at Spring Garden Baptist Church, Toronto
Take advantage of this opportunity to learn how to run Groups of Hope in your church for your women’s group. You and the women in your church will reap significant benefits. For more on how God used Groups of Hope on CBWOQ’s short-term mission to South Africa, read the September/October 2015 issue of live. Learn more here.

live magazine staff
Lot’s happened to the staff of live magazine this summer!

Renee’s husband Jeff suffered a massive heart attack on August 1 that required triple bypass surgery. He is recovering at home and Renee’s up and rolling again. For regular subscribers, your September/October 2015 issue will arrive two weeks later than usual in your mailbox.

live magazine is also issued in an audio format (CD). Marian Auld, the voice of live magazine since January 2012, passed away in July. Marian and her daughter Kathy managed this part of live’s ministry with grace and ease. We are thankful that Kathy will continue to do this ministry for the remainder of 2015.

Donna Lee Pancorvo, live’s art director, also said goodbye to her mother, Frances. Frances passed away in July, weeks shy of her 102nd birthday.

Do remember these women and their families in prayer this fall: that they would know God’s peace, protection and wisdom as they adjust to changes.
