 Dear friends,

In our attempt to update are mailing list, we emailed a young couple to get their current information. In response we got this absolutely heart-warming message from Cold Lake, Alberta:

"My husband and I contacted Chabad because we thought we would be transfered to Victoria. Instead, we ended up in Cold Lake for almost three years, and just this month we moved to Calgary...

"I so enjoy the weekly emails that I get from the Rabbi, so I hope you won't take us off of the email list. In such a busy place, with such busy lives, it is so nice to have a bit of thought-provoking or uplifting content. It is so refreshing. Please pass along that we appreciate how much work it must be, and we hope you know that we read and are grateful for it each week.
 
"When we were in Cold Lake, trying to find kosher ANYTHING and being so lonely and busy with a tiny baby, it was nice to have some Jewish connection to look forward to. Thank you for that and for serving the community. My husband's family lives in Nanaimo, so when we are on the island next for a visit, we will see if we can come by and finally introduce ourselves...

I too look forward to Rabbi's weekly comments. It is a pleasure to see him always positive in approach; he and his family are models for the community. Keep it up!!!
