An oasis in a parched land

I’ve just been spending some time with our daughter at The House of James Christian Bookstore in Abbotsford. What a great place. It has something for every stage and part of your life.

It’s so wonderful that we still have stores like this among the masses of media and materialistic things pumped into our lives. If you’re in need of refreshing and uplifting input to your life, visit your neighborhood Christian bookstore.

Condition critical in the Congo

The war and terror has been ongoing in Africa for many years. Something must be done now. One of the horrible areas is the Democratic Republic of Congo.

FYI: This area is very close to the children’s villages being built and run by Watoto.ca. Our daughter Tanya is working for the Watoto Canadian office and is responsible for coordinating volunteer trips to Uganda.
