We had to say goodbye to the Whaley family on Sunday after our fellowship lunch and John was the last to see them as he helped take some of their luggage and Revd Stephen down to the airport in Barcelona (there was just too much to fit into their rental car).
Looking around and back, it is very clear that having a resident chaplain for even just a few weeks made a huge difference – as did having him be here with his family around him. We were able to have weekly events – and to have a chaplain lead us in thought and prayer and praise. The weight was visibly lifted from our churchwarden!
Many thanks to the whole Whaley family for what they brought to us during their stay in Andorra.
