Taking some time off from their task of “saving lives,” members of the Society of Communicators and Networkers International (SCAN) in the ecclesiastical districts of Edmonton and Calgary and their families bolstered their brotherly bond during their joint Grand Eyeball and Picnic held in Bowness Park in Calgary on July 3, 2022.
“Despite the distance between Edmonton and Calgary—it’s like a three-hour drive—we participated in this activity. When the district minister informed us that the Church Administration approved this activity, we announced it right away in our district. We always wanted to be there whenever there is a call for our duty,” Nehemias Medina, SCAN vice president of Edmonton District, said.
The SCAN members and their families participated in friendly matches of outdoor games, as well as some board games.
Wilmardo Serrano, SCAN president of Calgary District, enthused, “I’m very happy to see our brethren, our fellow SCAN members in Edmonton. This is the first time we have seen them in the past 2 years because of the pandemic. I hope this activity will continue and will be done yearly.”
According to Wilmardo, such an activity not only helps “SCAN members know their fellow brethren but also helps them perform our duties better. It makes us more active in the Church.”
Both districts are in the province of Alberta, Canada. — With reports from INC News Section
