5:15 p.m. Update: We’re out! Details later, but it did not involve a tow truck, but rather the Lord sent someone along. It’s time for dinner and finishing set up, so we’ll have to post pictures later tonight or tomorrow of the process. Thanks for praying!
We arrived at our church for the conference tonight here in Grande Prairie, but the bus is now stuck in the mud/ice on the driveway which is on an incline. We would be so grateful for your prayers as we try to get it out without needing to call a tow truck. In the meanwhile, some will be setting up the book tables while the others work on it.
We appreciate your prayers! You all are so faithful to pray for us. Life is an adventure on the road.

We just saw two moose! We always enjoy any wildlife we see, and these two moose crossed Â in front of us! We were going to stop and take some more pictures, but theyÂ disappearedÂ into the trees before we could snap any closeups.
â€œAnd God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.â€ (Genesis 1:24)
One of the blessings of being able to travel is the experience of some different things. This is the farthest north that I have been. As we were driving the other day, I realized that there might be the chance of seeing the northern lights (aurora borealis). I checked and it looked like there was a slight chance that we might see this amazing phenomena. But I also prayed, as I know that God controls the weather, and the space weather, and that He could send the northern lights. And, He did! It was a beautiful demonstration to me of how He answers small and seemingly insignificant requests like this.

It’s 10:30, and it’s been an incredible weekend. The day didn’t end until after 9 p.m. tonight, as Dad and Mom did a special “wrap up” session, and by the time we talked, and fellowshipped some more and packed up the book tables, it was after 9. After family Bible time, we saw a special surprise tonight. I’ll leave it with that, but we’ll post on it later. We’ll do a “real” post on the conference tomorrow or Monday; I wanted to give you a few pictures for now!
With a full heart,
Sarah for the rest
“O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our day” (Psalms 90:14).
It was an incredible honor to be able to share with two different homes yesterday. The first home was a long-term care facility, and most of the residents were not very communicative. They loved the music, though! One man in particular, Thomas, pulled out his harmonica, and played along.
At the second home, we had a good group of around fifty. It was a total joy to be able to share with them in music and testimony. They were happy to hear the music, and then afterward, we were blessed to spend time talking.
“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world” (James 1:27).
