The long weekend took us out to Cold Lake. Kevin’s brother and his family live there . . . so Talia & Kaisa had an absolute blast playing with their cousins. The kids enjoyed the beach, the frogs, the train set, the gym . . . and simply being together. After not seeing each other for several months, they lasted the long weekend without too many squabbles. the adults even managed to get in a game of Rook. My sister-in-law, Dayle, is a FABULOUS photographer, so we got a few cousins pictures too 🙂 Here’s a cute one of the five youngest cousins. Don’t they all look like little angels?:
Our main reason to visit Cold Lake was simply to visit family. But Ken & Dayle also arranged for us to give an eMi presentation at their church, Grand Centre Alliance. We haven’t very often presented at a church that didn’t have a direct connection to us or our ministry. And engineering Ministries international is such a difficult concept to get across in 10 minutes or less. But Paster Bob made us feel very welcome, and definitely encouraged the congregation to consider getting involved. We spoke to a few individuals after the service who were very excited about what we were doing. And it sounds like Grand Centre wants to keep updated on where we’re headed . . . so that’s encouraging too! It’s neat to see other churches coming alongside us, as well as individuals.
We’re home to another busy week . . . who said the summer was supposed to be relaxing? Fun, DEFINITELY . . . but relaxing???
