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. :)

While driving up to Williamsburg, near Ottawa - Mom and I stopped at the Big Apple. :)

I've never been in Ottawa for Canada Day celebrations before...
I believe we had a lovely time there!!

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...
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
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! :)
