It is with heavy hearts that we must inform you that Jennifer Kennedy Dean, who was to be our speaker at September Women’s weekend, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, June 12th. Jennifer was a good friend to our ministry, and recently took part as a presenter at our Widows Journey weekend, and the Restore event. We are saddened by this loss, and our hearts go out to Jennifer’s family, friends and colleagues, as they mourn this unforeseen loss. Jennifer’s theme for September was “Synced: Living Connected to the Heart of Jesus!” and though we will miss her presenting that message, we are grateful to know that she is fully experiencing that connection to the heart of Jesus right now!
A Note from Andrea, Sandy Cove Women’s Ministry
Like you, my heart is saddened by the passing of Jennifer who ministered to us well these past two years. As we remember her heart for ministering to women, I know she would have wished us to proceed with the weekend. We are most thankful that God has provided, and Susie Larson has graciously accepted the invitation to step into the Guest Speaker role. Susie, who has shared Jennifer on her podcasts, is a nationally known speaker and, more importantly, a trusted veteran speaker and ministry leader to our Women’s Ministry programs. She has a strong and compassionate heart for women, and her theme for the weekend will reflect this as it is very appropriately entitled "Fully Alive"
Thank you so much for your prayers covering the Dean family. We look forward to serving you in September, and at your upcoming visit, we hope you will visit our Prayer Room where you are encouraged to take one of the ‘remembrance stones’ which were a recent donation from Jennifer.
