Tomorrow is the day we officially move out of our house. How quickly the past few weeks have gone by. It is such an exciting time and yet a little scary at the same time. I am thankful for the Lord’s faithfulness which is a great comfort to me as we enter into so many changes.
This past weekend we were in Fenelon Falls speaking at the local Baptist church about our ministry. We were so encouraged by our time there and the people we met. It was great to talk with everyone and share our passion for the children in Peru.
We were invited to stay with a family from our home church at their cottage on Cameron Lake for the weekend. This was a great help to us, and meant that we did not have to make the two hour drive to Fenelon Falls on Sunday morning. We arrived on Saturday to spend the day with the Kinsinger family. Hannah and Sarah enjoyed playing with Trisha and Kim as well as their big bother Kristopher. The water was warm enough that they went for a short swim in the lake. Tyler also braved the water while he helped Scott attach the floating docks and the boat winch. It was so beautiful to be by the water and listen to the waves. On Sunday afternoon we went into town and enjoyed Kawartha Dairy ice cream for a treat. I had my favourite ‘Moose Tracks’. It is vanilla ice cream with fudge swirls and peanut butter cups. We walked around town and watched a few boats go through the locks. It is amazing to see the whirlpools as the water fills the lock.
The last few days have been filled with the many tasks associated with moving. I don't think that I ever realized how much 'stuff' we have accumulated over the past ten years. Tyler has been very busy taking things to friends, family and the local thrift store.
Yesterday, we met with human resource directors for Kids Alive (KA) Kenton and Sheldina. We really enjoyed spending the evening with them and hearing about their recent trip to Peru. They travelled to Iquitos during this visit and had some very cute pictures of a few monkeys. I would say though that I did not find the pictures of the snakes quite as endearing.
I hope to add a few pictures that we have taken over the past few days soon. Make sure that you check out our bolg regularily during our time in Guatemala, we intend to update it weekly.
