has been the children's leader in Edmonton Seveth-day Adventist Church
Company for 6 of the past 8 years. Edmonton is a small group aimed at

has blessed Edmonton by supplying many children with learning
difficulties including autism and severe ADHD. Unless they
were having a really good day, the children would run wild, be as
disruptive as possible, or play outside and refuse to come in for

Sabbath School program. They enjoy doing the crafts and taking
the discussions, and they sit still in church. And whether
they were at church or not, they are always eager to receive their
"puzzle book" for the week.
Delwyn's children's stories are well liked by the whole church, children and adults alike.
