News and thanks from Rachel Bauman

Dear friends, 
Rachel & JoeHello from Madeline Island! Joe and I arrived at our new home last Monday afternoon and were greeted at the ferry dock by a handful of sweet St. John’s folks who helped us unload and get settled in to our temporary digs (parsonage will be ready in a month or so). In the past day we have figured out how to get groceries, a post office box. a Madeline Island Ferry Pass, and library cards — so the adventure begins! Thank you, dear church, for the incredibly generous “pastor’s purse,” the lovely notes and cards, and all of the well wishes — we are so humbled by your kindness and generosity, and we feel your love and prayers palpably with us. I wish I could write to every single one of you an individual note of thanks, but please know I am holding you in my heart and give thanks every day for each of you. Blessings, joy, and deep peace to each of you. 

With so much gratitude and love,
Rachel (and Joe)
