With appreciation and affection, participants at Mennonite Church Saskatchewan’s annual delegate sessions said thank you and farewell to Jerry Buhler, who served as area church minister for nine year years. It was clear from the standing ovation he received that he made many friends during that time. An ice cream social on March 13 gave participants opportunity to thank Buhler personally and sign a farewell notebook. During the next day’s session, friends encircled Buhler and his wife Kara, while others lifted hands toward them in a prayer of blessing. The Buhlers plan to move to British Columbia.
