What a story we live in!  God’s overwhelming blessings from land to land, from generation to generation!

Grandparent blessings –prayer, financial support, and unwavering commitment to our schools (and to their grandchildren in those schools)–are something we are deeply thankful for at Edmonton Christian Schools!  In October we were especially blessed by grandparents (and special friends) visiting Edmonton Christian Northeast School and Edmonton Christian West School for grandparents day.   Now, we want you to be blessed, not only by some of the pictures, but also by the words of blessing that grandparents spoke and wrote on those days!

(Thanks to those who took photos in this author’s absence.  Note that people quoted are not necessarily those in the pictures.)


“Edmonton Christian is the blessing on which our grandchildren’s life foundation is built. God’s gift to our three generations and beyond.”  Co and Alice VanderLaan

“We were totally reminded of Psalm 103-‘God’s love is ever and always, eternally present to all who fear Him, making everything right for them and their children as they follow His covenant ways and remember to do what He said.’  We pray God’s continued blessings on you and Christian Education.  Thankful Grandparents, Evert and Linda Vroon.”



“May God bless these children of our children.  May all of the plans and purposes that God has designed for each child come to pass. May each child know how precious they are and how much they are loved by God and by their families.”   Grandparent note of blessing left at grandparents day.

g-parents-ne9At a recent conference, the speaker, Andy Crouch said “Perhaps the most important role Grandparents can play in an institution [like a school] is to bless that institution.”    We had a taste of  the sweetness of those blessings in October.  We grow in gratitude together.
