Back Home in Canada

Well it has been three weeks since my daughter-in-law Amanda and I arrived back in Canada and we came home to snow and cold. My home country is so beautiful so the conditions did not throw me and the drive home gave me time to enjoy the beauty and to savor the short time in Nigeria with wonderfully warm weather. It has been anywhere from 0 C (32 F) to -40 C (-40 F) since we’ve been home so winter is settling in.

Mostly it was very comforting to hear my daughter’s voice telling  me she was so thankful that I was on my way home and was looking forward to seeing me. Trey Perry had lent me his phone in Lagos so I could call Danielle to let her know I was on my way to Canada.

However my trip did not start here and nor did it start on November 8th when I left for Nigeria. As it is with Jesus it is always a journey that has so much more to it than a single time frame…
