Oui! Je parle Francais !!

Eh Bien, Avec notre Seigneur nous sommes ici en Quebec! We actually arrived in Canada December 30, 2006. Some friends of ours in Kokomo loaned us their truck and trailer to move up to Canada (see photo). What a HUGE blessing that was as we couldn't fit everything into the van. Tim's CAQ (Certificat d'acceptance au Quebec)never actually arrived so we came into Canada as visitors. The immigration officers at the border told us we could go to our apartment and unpack and then re-enter the country when the CAQ arrived. So that is what we did. I just heard from the VISA office in Montreal (that issues the CAQ) that they mailed Tim his CAQ yesterday! Praise the Lord that it is in the mail! We did ask that they mail it to our address in Quebec City so hopefully we will get it before February!
When we got here everything was wet and relatively warm! good for driving and unpacking! We were also surprised to learn that we have a kitchen table and four chairs! We were not expecting that either! We are in a three bedroom apartment with a washer and dryer fridge and stove! Yesterday they replaced our toilet because there were cracks in the porcelain and I was worried that we might have a disaster on our hands! So we are all set now. It started to snow last Monday and it hasn't stopped! Tim has his first French test today and tomorrow he is driving the truck and trailer back to my parents house in Toronto (500 miles one way)to trade back with our friends Paul and Sherrie who are driving our van up from Kokomo. What precious people they are!
"Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare!" Psalm 40:5
Here are some recent pictures of our son Jayson at 6 weeks, and of Mikaylah in the snow!
