Park Brook School Says Thanks
The following letter was received from Park Brook Elementary School in August 2015:
Dear Rev. Larson and the Redeemer Covenant Congregation:
As I prepare for the coming school year, I reflect back upon the tremendous support we have been blessed to receive here at Park Brook from you and your congregation. The academic growth this past year was strong and we continue to see a positive culture growing within the school. It is a team effort and you are a part of the team.
One area that I think of specifically is the outreach at Park Haven Apartments with the Park Buddies Program. The students served and the relationships that have been built with Amy are wonderful. While specifically assisting with the academic needs of the students, the relationships have created an opportunity for our students to become involved in activities within your church and for them to hear the truth of Jesus.
Another area of support is just the relationship that we as a school have with your congregation. The support and encouragement is much appreciated. As a fellow believer and follower of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I am thankful for you and the congregation being the hands and feet of Jesus to the Park Brook community.
With appreciation, Scott Taylor, Principal

Sunday, November 16, 2014, we had the extraordinary opportunity to hear one mother’s moving testimony of strong faith in Christ, even through the hardest of life situations. We shared the life-changing story of the Olsen family who paid the ultimate sacrifice for service to this country.
The WCCO news anchor’s words on April 3, 2007, said it all. “A U.S. Marine from Eagan is the latest Minnesota casualty of the war in Iraq, according to his parents. Lance Cpl. Daniel Olsen, 20, died Sunday in Anbar Province. Gwen Olsen, Daniel’s mother, got the news Monday morning from two U.S. Marines, an Eagan police officer and chaplain. 'It was tough,' said Gwen Olsen. 'It really has not sunk in. Probably the fog we're in is a blessing. On top of that, just our belief in heaven and that we will see him.' Daniel Olsen had just turned 20 and enlisted in the Marines on his 18th birthday on March 15, 2005. Olsen went on to graduate from Eagan High School, where the administration is prepared to address grieving students. Olsen's sister is currently enrolled there as a senior."
Pastor Steve invited Gwen and the Olsen family to be with us on the Sunday following Veterans Day at Redeemer Covenant Church to share her story of faith, which has been strengthened by these events. Gwen and Steve worked together for Brown Photo back in the early '80s but had not been in touch for many years. Pastor Steve has prayed for the Olsen family since seeing the original story on the news in 2007. This past summer, he reached out to Gwen to see how she was doing and found a deep and strong faith had grown in her.
We were blessed by her story. Listen online >>
