Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples,
“Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.
Luke 18:16 NLT
Summer ~ Volume 13, Issue 3
Thank you so much for all you are doing on a daily basis to provide care for the youngest children in the North Pacific Union.  Each of you are going above and beyond to meet the needs of the parents and children in your care.  For that I say thank you!  You are amazing--keep up the good work! 

For those of you who may not know, my husband and I will be moving to Moab, UT in early July.  My husband, Lester, accepted a teaching position at the Grand County High School (GCHS)and not long after I also was offered & accepted the Family & Consumer Science teaching position at GCHS.  I will be teaching Child Development, Foods & Nutrition 1 and Interior Design 1.  

I have greatly enjoyed my time as the ECE Associate Director representing Early Childhood Education (ECE) in the North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC) and at the North American Division (NAD).  I will deeply miss my collaboration and interactions with each of you.  I pray that ECE will continue to grow and flourish in the NPUC.  

I pray God will bless each of you as you continue to provide care for His youngest.  I hope we meet again soon, if not on this earth, than in Heaven!
