Out of the Snow, Into the Icebox

February 22, 2012

Thought you might enjoy a few news articles, pictures, and videos of our recent ice storm. What wonderful memories we made, playing games by candlelight, reading aloud by the fireplace, and helping and being helped by kind neighbours.

Mail Situation

February 8, 2012

The mail that was hung up in Canada Customs is still somewhere in Nova Scotia (we believe that it is in Sydney – an official told us that they found the latest box that came across the border, but the box was broken and its contents could not be found anywhere)…no mail has come since our last post here, which means that we have had no mail arrive from the United States since early January.

We believe in a Sovereign God who rules over when our mail arrives. We rest in His wisdom. Curtis is unable to get started on pre-med Biology until the textbook arrives; this could delay his entry into medical school. God knows this too.

Mail-sent financial provision has also not arrived. Again, God knows. What tremendous comfort there is in resting on Him.

We appreciate your prayers more than ever.
