Stalwart supporter Brenda Loveday passes on.

It is with immense sadness that we pass on the news that Brenda Loveday died aged 80 of complications after a surgical operation last month. She has lived in Seer Green all her life, and was a faithful supporter of SEER MINISTRIES from the start. Brenda was a great organiser as well as a doer. She arranged the annual sale in May of each year and behind the scenes worked hard for the people of Romania, particularly the children. Her knitting and other work provided much needed help to those with very little, despite never having the opportunity to travel to see those whom she helped, she still was driven by faith to provide what she could.
Gary Lester was particularly close to Brenda, so returned from Romania in time for the funeral on the 1st October. He said, "Brenda never really appreciated how much her work impacted on the people of Romania. We are sure now that she is heaven where strangers are coming up to her saying, 'I am here because of you.' The words, 'Well done, my good and faithful servant.' are particularly relevant for her."
There will be a large hole in the fabric of the village for some time to come, as Brenda touched many people's lives, as was reflected by the well attended Thanksgiving service at the Baptist Church.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her son David and the rest of the family.
