Gay Carpenter bids farewell

After 24 years as a tutor, Gay Carpenter has decided it is time to focus on the church Bible study that she and her husband, Mike, host in their home. Gay's last students completed their course on Prophecy in the Old Testament in June. So on the 17th July, 60 people attended an afternoon tea at Gay and Mike's house to bid farewell.

At the tea were students from Gay's very first groups back in 1992, as well as present day ones and all stations in between. Also, Sarah Yates and Mary Howard, two wonderful secretary/adminisrators, (Mary from our time at Oak Hill and Sarah from the time at Trinity College), came too. 

Over the 24 years that Gay has tutored, she has had 230 students in all, many of whom have stayed on to get their Certificates. 37 students have gone on to be priests, 17 to be Readers, 6 to be tutors, and 3 lay preachers. One is a missionary in Zimbabwe. 

We are so grateful to Gay and the legacy of lives better equipped in Christian service that she leaves behind. Gay continues to support and encourage the GOLD Project as it goes forward.
