Dear Pastor Ken
Thank you so much for your prayers for my trip to Australia. The travel with my parents went incredibly well (although jet-lag hit me pretty hard on my return to Canada). It was very fun for me to be back in the "Land Down Under" and to enjoy the beauty of that nation. For the most part, we had sunny weather, although it was a little cool for this time of year.
It was significant for me to re-connect with my sister's family and to have some special "sister-time." Looking back now, we're so glad that we made the trip and had the opportunity to bless Renee on her birthday. It was fun to be a part of all of their lives for a few weeks (and to see my nephews growing up to be great men of God).
A definite highlight was spending time with my great-niece, Ariel Joy! She's an incredibly happy tenth-month old...but I'm not biased!! (She actually is the happiest baby we've ever met...just about never cries.) We had some fun baby-sitting and just getting to know her.
So, if you'd like to see some of my photos: http://nodsjourney.blogspot.ca/
