The following pictures were taken by Jeremy Doorten who went to Rwanda last year and did what we will be doing this May.

Spring

It was a gorgeous day on Sunday, and we had time to go for a walk in the early afternoon while the sun was warming the earth.
The smell in the air was so nice, the trees had warmed up and were giving off the 'Perfume of Spring!'

My Little Friends



I did a favor for my friend and watched her kids the other day!

Our Trip - First Leg

There is a very special servant of God who touched our hearts today!

We have our first leg and last leg of our journey to Rwanda completed!

Praise the Lord!

Our flights from Saskatoon to Washington, and from
Washington to Saskatoon are booked and paid for.

We have also been Blessed with having half our funds in for the trip too! The first half of the funds were to be in by the middle of March, and the rest have to be in by the middle of April!
We are Praising the Lord for the way He works in the lives of people who love Him!

"Don't be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!"
Nehemiah 8:10

"And the joy of the LORD will fill you to overflowing. You will glory in the Holy One of Israel."
Isaiah 41:16

I think I've been experiencing some of this 'JOY' lately!

Divine Appointment!

I had a Divine Appointment the other day!
My sister was there to experience it with me!
It all started Monday, March 1st, Peter and I went to get some more of our immunizations that we needed to get for our May Rwanda Trip 2010! Peter doesn't like getting needles, and he doesn't like watching me get needles! I don't mind getting needles, he just can't watch seeing the needle go into the arm! Okay, so he isn't feeling to well after getting 2 needles in one arm and 3 in the other, (me - just 2 in 2) but we do get back to the car and drive to work - "because he HAS to put that sink in that he started on Friday!" By evening he is taking the chills, and has a fever. I too have developed a fever and not feeling like doing much.
Tuesday, the plan is for me to travel to Skt'n with the TV Dept. for a Matrix Show. And because I also had a delivery (an envelope) to make for our Rwanda trip, I go to Skt'n. Peter on the other hand, stays home in bed, I probably should have too!
At noon, I have made plans to meet up with my sister and go for lunch and give her this envelope. She, at that time, gives me a tylenol for my fever - Bless her Lord! And we go for lunch. Well, I kind of want to hit VV while in town and so we head in that direction and find a nice small little restaurant to eat. Of course it is full, with one couple in line for a table, we decide to stay and wait. I am not one to look around much to see if I know someone, but I do and I see some people that both Peter and I know. About a month and a half earlier, Peter had given them a support letter for our trip. So I do what most people do and go say my Howdy's, and then back in line with my sister. We don't wait to long.
By this time, the tylenol is starting to work and I'm feeling some relief from my fever. We order and start eating the wonderful special they had. As the people I know are leaving, one stops by our table and asks me to give their regards to Peter (I had told them he was home with a fever) and that here is a little something for our trip, and proceeds to hand me a folded cheque! I added it to the envelope and Praised God!
Divine Appointment!
I think so!
Only God knew that I needed to go to Skt'n on Tuesday, that my sister would pick that restaurant to go to, that they would be there too.
(Now sis, that draws tears to my eyes to see God at work!)
Everyone, have a blessed day!
