Montreal Update

September 7, 2011

On Monday, we crossed the border into Quebec. It has been a joyful homecoming, and a very smooth one. We are in the Montreal area for a few days, and soon will head to les Iles de la Madeleine.

We believe that God has woven your prayers into His good plans for us. Typically the return to French Canada is accompanied with experiences of spiritual oppression; this time there has been none of this.

We began to prepare our spirits and our minds many weeks ago, having learned that it is not a good or wise thing to come here spiritually lax as to battle armor and weapons. Yet I believe also, that it is the specific and focused prayer support that is making the difference.

We have renewed our French familiarity, and imperfect translations of road signs, Bible verses, and the like can be heard frequently within the family.

Thank you to those who have helped secure a replacement trailer for us; it is working marvelously, and providing a traveling office as well as a home.

Thank you for praying. Please do NOT let up; now that we are here, we need this partnership more than ever. And don’t forget to write!

We thank God for the infinite grace that has saved and sustains us as we begin our seventh year of Gospel witness to the precious, yet darkened land of Quebec.

P.S. Please pray for Curtis as he takes his MCAT exam in Montreal tomorrow (Thursday).
