Safely Arrived in Canada

After spending seven days on the road we finally arrived at our destination of Moncton, Canada two days later than our intended date of arrival. We praise the Lord for his Blessings to us and for the safety in our traveling.

Our first week here in Canada has been quite full. Tuesday JA helped a college student move from one apartment to another, Wednesday night he preached (because the pastor and several from the church left on a missions trip to Quebec Wednesday a.m.). Thursday and Friday JA spent preparing his sermons for Sunday (he preached three great sermons on Sunday), and then Saturday was Canada day.

We drove around town for any possible sign of celebration. Other than seeing everyone dressed in red and white we didn't see much. We finally ended up at Centennial park. Kara and Lydia both had a blast at the playground, and Kara had her face painted with the Canadian Leaf. We watched all of the ducks get fed, and Kara received a baloon dog.

We had a wonderful time and it was probably one of the most relaxing days we've had since we left our vacation in Colorado.

awwww. They look so cute! What a busy week for your first week there. I'm so glad JA preached so well."way to go JA." Not that we doubted :) I'm glad you're where God has you this summer. He is good and does supply all our needs! Love you.

Praise the Lord for providing the van. that sounds like Julie's and my fiasco last summer when the camry died (although we didn't have kids to take care of too).

Glad you guys made it to Canada safe and sound. What is it like calling up there? Do you still have the same cell phone service?

Glad to hear you made it. Hope the van is doing well. We had a great VBS and look forward to the next one. We probably won't have access to internet next week, so we will post when we get a chance.
