Missions Conference

This year at our church's missions conference Daddy was able to present our mission work:) This was our first meeting, and it went very well! For those of you who do not know, we are missionaries to Canada. We went on a survey trip at the end of last March and then came home to pray about it. On Easter Sunday we made our decision public that God had called us to the mission field.

After that we went through the process of choosing a mission board. After finding one that we were happy with and got accepted we then had to get everything together. We had to make a board, get prayer cards, make a presentation, and get pictures together. It was a lot of work:) I never knew how much work it was to be a missionary. But it was also a lot of fun:)

Here are a few pictures of the week:)
Fully Persuaded was the theme of the conference. To God be the glory over 46 people were saved and one family in our church gave their lives to full time service!
This is our board! There is a top piece that goes on the top, but that will have our name on it.

This is a picture of Daddy talking about work.
I hope you will pray for us as we start on the deputation road. We are planning to be done with deputation and in Canada in 2010, Lord willing. Please pray that we are able to do that. We are also going on to Canada at the end of this month. We will be there for 5 days and hope to get better pictures for our display. We are also looking forward to seeing the people there, as that is where our hearts are. I will be sure to post pictures of our trip:)

Your display looks very nice. Was Daddy nervous about speaking? I love the picture of the three of you. :)
