Alya here. Mom is typing this for me because, of course, I don’t have thumbs—but my dew claws work very well for some things, just not typing.
Mom and I decided that I should NOT renew my Pet Partners’ registration when it expires in December, 2014. Thus, I will be retiring from my active ministry helping mom with dog-ministry prayer-group gatherings.
It has been a pleasure to meet the elders we visit every week who gather to hear mom proclaim God’s word and her stories that expand on those scriptural passages. My role for “dog-ministry” has been to invite individuals into our circle of wisdom to listen and then share their own experiences about their pets as related to the scriptural story.
Thank you all for keeping up with our on-going journey. Mom intends to keep working on the growing loose-leaf book of stories with the aim of publishing them as a companion volume to her work, Four-Footed Ministers In Formation: A Training Manual on Dog Ministry. We invite you to continue to check in with our blog for further updates.
Blessings to you all.
