Our Team Retreat


Thank you!  To each of you who had been praying for our team retreat last week.  A small group of us had gone up to Wales a day early to set up, we were able to get all of the tents set up and the site cleared before the rest of the team arrived the next day.

The beginning of the week was very wet!  We joked about the fact that the incredible levels of rain is why the country is so beautiful and green.  Inside we were each praying for it to stop! Camping in the rain is even less fun then it sounds! We were all there to rest and have a chance to just 'be' together without the normal levels of responsibility and expectation.

Thankfully the end of the week brightened up and we were incredibly blessed with our time together. We were each able to leave Wales feeling rested and refreshed!!

We are already looking forward to next year!!

The Cooking Team
 Each year during our team retreat we are blessed with a team to come and help serve with cooking the meals.  This year we had four people on the cooking team, the interesting difference from previous years is that these four are university students who openly said they didn't know how to cook!

Eileen had the privilege of working with them throughout the week and what a blessing they were!  Every moment of food preparation in the kitchen was fun.

Through the course of the week we worked on 900 meals!!

Friends 4 Dinner

During the Christmas season we had the privilege of hosting some Moroccan students for a Christmas meal.  It was a fun event for all of us.  We are already looking forward to the next time we can have them over!!

Eden is driving!!!

Well, I guess it had to happen eventually.  Eden is our first child to be on the road!!  Ottawa has less public transport than London did so Eden is pretty excited to be working towards her license.  She asks to drive at every opportunity!!  She is learning well and doing a good job.  She is looking forward to getting her full license and it will be nice for us to have another taxi driver in the house!!

The First Snow

The first snow came this weekend and the kids were pretty excited.  Waking up on a Sunday morning to a blanket of white is idealistic for your first winter.  
We will have a lot of snow this summer and the kids will enjoy it but we are sure as the winter goes on there will be more snow than even children can be excited for so today....  we are enjoying it!!
