On the evening of Sabbath 19th February, Guildford Church members and friends gathered for a farewell dinner for the Tshado family, who regularly attended and supported Guildford church for approximately 15 years. They were as close to us as any of our members, and we had many beautiful times together in Sabbath fellowship and grew very close together over the many experiences shared throughout the years.
The evening was spent sharing a delicious meal prepared by some of our sisters and sharing of memories and words of appreciation. There was lots of laughter and tears as we recalled the wonderful times we had together.
It was truly a memorable evening and very fitting for the Tshado family, who we will all miss very much, as they have been a part of our lives for many years.
Towards the end of the evening, we gifted the family a token of our love with a canvas printed with pictures of all the Western Australian members and friends they came to know, and a prayer from Genesis 31:49, “The LORD watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.”
