Vavenby News: Moilliet travels Alberta on promotional tour

Ian Moilliet returned home on June 10 from a 10-day trip promoting his book, A Shepherd’s Heart

Ian Moilliet returned home on June 10 from a 10-day trip promoting his book, A Shepherd’s Heart. He spoke at three different churches, signed books at each, and left some behind.

In Edmonton he spoke at Calvary Community Church, which has 500 parishioners. Ian spoke with the 30 members of the leadership team of Beulah Alliance Church in Edmonton. This church has 3,000 people in its congregation.

When Ian was in Edmonton it was the Global Day of Prayer. He was very honored when invited to a local church and asked to give a prayer for Canada. People bought books there and had them signed.

From Edmonton he went to Red Deer, where he left books at the Parables Christian Book Store.

Next stop was Calgary. Ian spoke at the Bow River Valley Christian Church. This church has 600 members. He also spoke to a ministerial group. Books were left in Blessings Book Stores in Calgary and Edmonton.

Ian really enjoyed the trip. He said he found it rewarding and fulfilling. He sold about 150 books and left about 120 books behind in bookstores. He hopes to do another promotional book tour, this time to the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, later in the year.

Copies of Moilliet’s book are being sold in Clearwater at Safety Mart and the Consignment Store, and at Dee’s General Store in Birch Island.

Ian and June Moilliet were both invited by Barb Gorgan to sell their books at the Wild Fire Dragon at the 2011 Music and Arts Festival in Louis Creek. The event took place on Saturday, July 23. The weather was perfect and everyone was extremely friendly.

There was one long table at which six authors from Vavenby and Clearwater sold their books and Shirley DeVooght sold tickets to the Serenity concerts.

June’s book is a children’s story called The Adventures of Jingles the Lamb. It describes the real life of sheep as seen through a lamb’s eyes. A little girl from Montreal – the patron from farthest away – bought one of June’s books.

Kelsey Lee gets a baby shower

A baby shower for Kelsey Lee Rexin and her parents Christina Fillon and Kevan Rexin was held at Fillon’s parents’ house on Saturday, July 30. Guests from as far away as Calgary and Kelowna showed up. The dinner was potluck and there was a large spread to choose from.

Kelsey received many wonderful gifts.

One friend arrived on his motorcycle with a present of 84 disposable diapers. He had expected a huge package but, to his surprise, it fit into his saddlebag.


The weather was perfect and everyone had a good time.
