Wow! What a whirlwind! We had a fabulous week of training in Winnipeg with our fellow BFAer's , cluminating in a dedication service on Friday night where we were commissioned to be Missionaries. So we are now officially missionaries serving Black Forest Academy through the Janz Team mission. We were very moved by the service and the blessing and send-off we received in Winnipeg. We also met some wonderful people there and look forward to serving with them in Germany.
Then it was arrive home, greet the kids, do laundry, repack and head up to the cottage overnight for a speaking engagement on Sunday morning at Price's Corners near Orillia. We were warmly received there. Jim spoke on his painting "Road to Emmaus" and we even sold 6 books. We had a list for people to sign up for our Germany newsletter and got our first names for our missionary mailing list. It is becoming more real every day, this calling to serve in Germany.
We got back home safely in the midst of thunderstorms but the sun has come out.
- Praise the Lord that He brought Peter and Janet to rent our house. Pray that they will be settled there and feel that it is home.
- Please pray for our children, Niall and Sorche, as they settle into school and dorm life. Pray for good friends for both of them and that they will be able to handle the adjustment to a new school routine.
- We are so thankful for the many people who have pledged to support us financially. Please continue to pray for this area, for our understanding of the new things we are encountering and that God will provide for us in all areas.
