Our two and a half months living in Michigan were amazing and recently came to a close last weekend. As our time in Michigan was coming to an end we were busy spending time with family and friends and enjoying our last days and weeks there. We set aside our last few days to just be with family over Christmas. Now that we are back in Ontario we are already feeling the absence of family. It has been so good to have family living close by! We loved it!
Overall our time of Partnership Development in Michigan was of huge value! We were able to connect with a lot of people, share about our ministry with many and see new people join our ministry team, including the addition of a church that is excited to be joining our team as our Michigan home church. We had previously asked prayer for this so this is a huge answer to that specific prayer! Pete hasn’t lived in Michigan for five years now so the time spent there was of huge value in reconnecting with many friends and family.
We arrived home to Ontario and a day later Carly’s family joined us to celebrate their ‘Christmas’ together. It was great to see them all after being gone for so long! Now we’re settling back into to life here at home and getting ready to head back to our normal routine Monday. I must admit it has been strange to be home and in the area after such a long absence! We’re enjoying the big snow storm that is currently hitting us and the beauty of it and it’s definitely good to be back on Canadian ground!
Thanks to all of you who followed our journey while we were in Michigan and to those who prayed for us. And to our loved ones in Michigan…we sure loved seeing you all and we enjoyed the chance to catch up on each others lives!
