We had a wonderful break from all the changes going on in our lives as we headed North to Canada to visit some new friends. Dan and Gill Shoemaker have been serving in Haiti for 8 years and we will soon be part of their missionary family. We spent hours getting to know each other and talking about all the things God has been doing in our lives. Dan and Bud will be working very close together as Bud learns his new job and He is in charge of the MFM teams that I will be working with. We are so looking forward to working with these wonderful people. God has really gifted them and they are so anxious to use their gifts to serve him. They took the time to give us a tour of their beautiful home town Elora, ON.
Dan and Gill took us to a meeting with them to meet some wonderful young people who will be leaving for Haiti to experience short term missions in January. I know that they will not be the same when they come home. I would love to be part of the people who get to share this experience with them. When we arrived home we spent the evening sharing our calling and our passion for what God has in store for us. We feel so blessed by all the experiences God has allowed us to have during this time in our lives. Thank-you Dan and Gill and Helen for adding to our lives in such a special way.
