Dear Praying Friends
Ginters in Canada for an additional year – processing and interacting
Jacob's Parents Celebrate 60 Years!
Traveling across Western Canada – we’ve traveled through Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C.!
Ginters in Canada for Another Year
We have had a number of excellent talks with friends and supporters regarding the decision that sees us in Canada for another year. If you desire to know more about that decision, please read our most recent Mustard Seed. We’re also hoping to interact with all our supporters, either by phone or through a personal visit. Please pray for us as we work through our plans for this next year. We want to make the most of the time we have to prepare for what God has for us when we return to Spain in 2009.
We had the privilege of celebrating Jacob's parent's 60th wedding anniversary July 06. The entire event was wonderful!
Traveling across Western Canada
July has been a month full of travels and interactions with people. We are right now, as I type, on a B.C. Ferry, crossing over to Vancouver Island! This has been such a great experience so far. We’ve been received so graciously into so many homes. We’ve been fed so generously (maybe too generously sometimes!!). And we’ve enjoyed fantastic conversations, allowing for mutual encouragement and loads of laughter. The girls have also enjoyed re-connecting with cousins and friends along the way. Once again, this is the part of Canada we miss when we’re in Spain: family and friends! So, while we’re missing our family and church family and friends in Ontario right now, we’re enjoying people in Western Canada. God is good!
Please continue to pray for travel safety, and for sensitivity to God’s Spirit as we interact with people. Our conversations are often quite meaningful, and we are learning very much.
Thanks for your love and prayers!
