Oh Canada Moments

I have been in Canada for 6 weeks now and I've spoken in 5 different churches.  I've also had some good times with friends, family, and nature.  I don't always find home service the easiest of times... I find them lonelier, and I'm far away from my work, home, and other people that I love.  But, God is good and here is a glimpse into a few treasured moments!!
At a cousin's baby shower... Grandma is trying to figure out the size of the mother's waist.  :)
 Sharing about Uganda at a CoffeeBreak picnic in Etobicoke
 At Ska-Nah-Doht village - just a tiny peep into First Nations history
 The People of the Longhouses
 Getting ready for a church presentation
 While driving up to Williamsburg, near Ottawa - Mom and I stopped at the Big Apple.  :)
 Da Bears!

 The Locks in Ottawa
 Canada Day festivities - I love the patriotism
 In front of the court house
 Always happy to celebrate with my parents
 On Parliament Hill
 I've never been in Ottawa for Canada Day celebrations before...
 I believe we had a lovely time there!!
Street art
 Great First Nations performances!!
 Awesome fireworks display
Go light your world...
 Proud to be Canadian!
 Watching the sunrise as I began a 17 hour fishing trip to Toronto
 A peaceful day on the waters - only one salmon was caught.
 Taking out the braids
 Hmmm... I will miss the green
 I love the purple
 On the wild side...
 Tamed again...
 During a week of training up new missionaries at the Global Outreach Mission offices, we took an evening get away to Niagara Falls.
 I made the whole group stop to see the Laura Secord house... our Paul Revere of Canada.
 The US side of the falls
 Evening glory
 Horseshoe Falls
 In the GOM office, a small group of volunteers tag prescription glasses, before they head out on short term trips to countries that need eye care.  I'm excited that the next trip will be heading to Uganda! I just hoped I read the prescription correctly... it's not easy aligning the lenses with the machine to catch the numbers.
These glasses were a little easier to handle! :)
