Our three year adventure almost feels more concrete now with the arrival of the missionary cards. We're still working on our extreme down-size of the condo; which is about to be put on the Ottawa market for furnished long-term rental (with availability from November 7th, 2017). It would be lovely if someone who is responsible could take the whole time, but it's more likely it would be people who would be there for months, not years. Please pray in the right person and for our preparation to go smoothly.
One of the benefits of digitizing photos, cards, letters, and a vast music collection is rediscovering gems. One such gem was a birthday card with my favourite flower - irises. The sender was my mother-in-law - Tony's dear Mum. She wrote me a note about looking forward to seeing me the next time she would see me - that day was September 11, 2001. While it was a horrific day in the US, the two of us bonded deeply during that visit.
I trust we will have many such special moments during our time to come. Thank you for your love, encouragement and support!
