The Jobes Leave Today

Jobes Prayer Card FrontV2God has really blessed us by giving us another family to relate to and go through pre-deployment with. Today they are all climbing on a plane and starting the journey to Nosy Mitsio, a tiny island off the coast of Madagascar in Africa. They will be joining their team at Africa Inland Mission's headquarters in Georgia after their flight today. They are going on a TIMO mission which focuses on training them to be long term missionaries. They will be there for just over two years.

The process of getting there is long and arduous. There are 8 young children among the group which will likely make the journey more difficult. After quite a lot of travel and some stops for training on how to survive in a third world country, they will finally be greeted with Nosy Mitsio on the horizon in mid November.   nosy-mitsio After a week of staying with a family in their village, they will move into their new home. It is a sweet little hut and is ready and waiting for their arrival. It is a long road to get there though. Please join our family in praying for the Jobes, especially in these next three weeks before arriving at their home. 10626480_734039653648_7616873126465400419_n If you want to know more about the Jobes mission and follow their journey, you can visit their blog here:

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
