Edmonton, Alberta

Here we are at our first Canadian destination for this trip: Edmonton, Alberta! We look forward to a full weekend ahead.

We actually arrived about 1 p.m., after running a few errands. We’re already set up and ready to go. The sun is even shining, but it still feels like we’re in the middle of winter :-). Thank you for your prayers. We are so grateful!

It feels like we’re pretty far north. But, the assistant pastor here told us that they support missionaries in the Arctic Circle, and Edmonton is just half way between Jacksonville, Florida and the Arctic Circle. How amazing is that?

Sarah for the rest


“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing” (Zephaniah 3:17).

  1. Wow. I really have to give your family credit for all you do (and the conditions you do it in) in your ministry. Dealing with the snow while driving and unloading your books and products cannot be easy. Good luck with the weekend and the remainder of your trip!

  2. I’m so glad to hear that you are safely in Edmonton! I was wondering, and this has nothing to do with your post, but do you use a ‘Bible website’, like biblegateway, to find your verses that tie so well to your posts? If you do, what site is it, I would really like that as a resource.
    We don’t use a website. We have various Bible programs. Wordsearch, Logos, and another one or two I’m not sure of. We haven’t standardized.

  3. I have several relatives in and around the Edmonton area. Try and see if you can spot signs for Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Entwistle, Darwell, Lake Isle and Fallis (hint, if you blink you’ll miss the last 3!)


  4. Welcome to Canada! I pray that God will use you to benefit the lives of those you will meet here.

  5. Welcome to My Country!

    When we pull out our winter boots, they stay by the back door for 6 months. 🙂

    Soon we will be lambing and our ground is covered by at least a foot of snow! This winter has added a whole new meaning to the song: ‘let it snow’! 🙂 🙂

  6. I want to say thank you for making the trip here to Edmonton. I thoroughly enjoyed Teri’s talks and picked up lots of information I’m going to apply to our own home.

    I picked up several books, and my youngest is especially looking forward to our read aloud time with Sarah’s children’s books.

    If anyone has the opportunity to see the Maxwells, they are FABULOUS! The younger Maxwell’s are also of great assistance in picking out books, and cd’s.

    Thanks again!
