Caption: One could quote the poet Milton, who said, "They also serve who only stand and wait." Our Assembly theme was "Witnessing to Christ in Today’s World." As we prepared for Assembly 12 in Winnipeg, we were mindful of our witness as we interacted with the marketplace. Through God’s grace we were able to interact with service suppliers in such a mannger that they felt respected and in turn gave us respect. Many contracted suppliers and their technicians spoke ppositively about their experience with Assembly 12 and went the extra mile for us.
