A Fond Farewell

Dave Pepper is moving on after 7 years with Friends International.
 
In October I wrote to inform Friends International that Dave Pepper was stepping down as National Director. The replies back included comments like these: “He has done such a wonderful job”, “He
has brought an immense amount to FI”, “He will be sorely missed”.
 
Dave’s contribution to Friends International has been hugely appreciated so the news of his departure is sad, but we are also very grateful to God for the increase in centre teams, branches an affiliates, as well as the pleasure of working with Dave over the past seven years. So, we wish him well, and entrust his future plans and ours to our loving Heavenly Father.
