Pieter is on sabbatical from his position as pastor of Rouge Valley Mennonite Church in Markham, Ont. The Niemeyers will remain in Philipstown until July 30, 2009. During their stay, Pieter is teaching basic theology from an Anabaptist perspective at Grace Community Churches, while Susie works with those churches on women’s issues.
