Anniversary Sunday November 27, 2016

I remember back 30 years ago in November… we were dedicating our new church building. 30 years ago in July David & I married in the tiny facility that was once a liquor store, carpet store…our church where we met… and now someone’s home.

The summer we got married was crazy with the church being built. We didn’t want to wait until November for the new facility, so we married in the tiny building.

Later that Fall, in November 1986, the beautiful facility complete with red carpet was ready! This was a huge undertaking for a very new congregation that was only about 5 years old. This is where we served, this is where we raised our family. The church has grown over the last 30 years, people have come and gone. There have been many many changes.

This November, actually today, is the Annual Anniversary Sunday. This year 30 years later there is more great news and more reason to feel so blessed. Over the last 6 months the church as gone through a building expansion. Knocking back walls, adding here and there to make room for the growing congregation and young families ( lots and lots of new babies). So this November after having church at an off site location for the past 6 months , we are back in the newly expanded building. There is still lots to do, final touches and things to finish up BUT…we are VERY thankful and feel so blessed!

I didn’t get a picture of the outside finished today it was snowy so I will update one soon…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
