Thank you, Nicodemus John

This is NOT a “Northern Translation Brief”, but all our friends are welcome to read on anyway. Our son, Nicodemus, is a psychology/sociology undergrad at Trinity Western University. In his few spare minutes between coursework, papers, reading, exams and work, he also roasts his own coffee beans using a second-hand popcorn popper (you could Google this to find out more, but it’s so cool! He showed us the last time we visited him at home in Langley BC).

Anyway, a couple weeks ago he sent us a package with Easter gifts in it. It contained a jar of coffee beans that he had especially roasted for me, since he knows that I like to hand-grind my own coffee each morning. See this other post about how I got started.

Here are some pictures to say “thanks” and to share this with you too.

He wrapped all our gifts in paper and “tied up with string“. Easter Chocolate!

import April 16 2016 657Pour and enjoy.

import April 16 2016 659Ahh! Thank you, Nicodemus John!

And for any friends reading over my shoulder, please remember to pray for Nicodemus as he has his final exams this week, Wednesday April 20, to Tuesday April 26; psychology and sociology 300 and 400-level undergrad classes.

Love, Dad (and Mom)
