FAREWELL AND CARD SHOWER FOR THE MOSINYIS – Boa and Tebago Mosinyi have been members of UCC since 2011. Bao came to the United States as a young man from Botswana to pursue higher education. Later Tebogo came from Botswana to visit a friend in the States. She and Bao met through that mutual friend. They were married in 2011, and we have been privileged to have them as active members of our congregation. Both of their children, Melodi and Lefika, were born during their time here, and we watched them grow from the time they were babies. They will be moving to Hartford, Connecticut on the 23rd of this month. Next Sunday we will honor them with a card shower and cake after church. Please bring goodbye cards and wish them well. We will miss them.
