Receiving a hundredfold

We figure the best way to fill you in on the last month will be through these pictures. Although some details will be missed God continues to work in our lives, both through our family and our community here. There have been those times of doubt, but God’s promise remains for us a beacon as we continue to feel His blessings: “And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much.” -Matthew 19:29.  As you can see from the pictures spring has sprung!

The community here has continued to receive us with kindness and friendship. We were invited by friends to visit their family fish camp where the Tahltan & Stikine meet. We felt honoured to be invited here. It remains a sacred place for the Tahltan people as it continues to be one of the main fishing grounds.

These next few weeks will be busy, with Josh leaving for 10 days for a trek through Mt.Edziza Provincial Park, and then leaving for Juneau, Alaska  1 week after he gets back. Denise will be attending a Catechesis of the Good Shepherd training course. But we’ll hopefully keep you all updated with pictures in between and after:)
