Bread For The Journey Book Launch Invitation

Last week we had our first look at our new book Bread for the Journey
The boxes were delivered to my farm gate and I used a great deal of self-control not to take a peek inside.

Among many of the things I've learned within the Mennonite Girls Can Cook group is that there is a special joy and blessing  in sharing our experiences as a group.

When we found out a few months ago that  Charlotte and her husband were planning on being in the Fraser Valley for a family reunion, Marg sent out an invitation for dinner in their back yard.  

The Lord worked out all the details in such a beautiful way that we all agreed that we couldn't have planned it any better.
Our author copies were there just in time to turn this evening into a book reveal party.

Betty and her husband were not able to be with us on that evening and they were missed.
We look forward to spending time with them later in the year when we all travel to see the  

When we opened up the box ...
we saw the back first.  

Everyone was gathered around as we shared the first glimpse of the cover.

This new book has earned its title
not only through our Sunday Devotional posts
but also by the stories passed down to us
about the journeys our parents undertook to leave their homes in Russia.

We've each shared at least one story of how our families left Russia to come to Canada and US, some having lost homes and precious family . . . left as orphans and widows.

We think you will be inspired by the courage of our forebearers, and the trust they had that God would have a purpose for them in a new land.

Bread for the Journey is a thirteen week devotional with a recipe and a family journey story for each week.

As with our two cookbooks, the royalties from this book will all be given to orphans and widows who face each day in need.

Our prayer is that they would see the love of Jesus extended through caring hands, one home and one heart at a time.

If you live in the Fraser Valley, we would love to see you at our book launch on August 3rd!
