Halfway

I cannot believe it, but we are already over halfway through our short term mission trip in Montreal. Nearly seven months flew by very quickly. It is a very interesting time for us right now. We are picking up the pace in our mission work. Filming projects are piling up and ready to be edited. City Church is continuing to grow and looking at adding and changing many areas of ministry. The church planting conference is just around the corner. It is enough to keep us plenty busy.




There is so much more to think about though. In about 4 months we will be returning to Minnesota. There are living arrangements to plan. We will need an income of some sort. There will be packing to start. Plus we will be arriving just in time for the holidays, which will also need to be planned.




If that was not enough, we are also planning our return to Montreal as long term missionaries. That involves more paperwork, applications, and training. There is also deciding on what our long term ministry will be and preparing for another year or two of church visits and support raising.




With all that is on our plate right now, you would think that we were going mad with anxiety and worry. In actuality, god has given us an incredible amount of peace going forward into the next few months. We are feeling patience with all of the processes and none of the rush. Living day by day is starting to be well balanced with planning ahead and that just feels great.

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.

Indescribable

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.
