After a month at Camp Joli-B, we loaded up and headed back to Sherbrooke. It was hard saying goodbye to our friends and church family. We attended a small church called Source de Vie and were blessed by their friendship. We also became good friends with the Dallaire family who happened to live just a few blocks away. They have two girls, Anne Marie and Lydia whom Micah asks to visit often. Micah enjoyed their pool, even though it was too cold for us adults!! We're really gonna miss them, but we look forward to keeping in touch!

After our vacation in NC, we headed back up to Canada for more French practice. We helped out for a little over a month at a Christian camp, Joli B, 12 hours northwest of Sherbrooke. What an adventure! The staff was really great! They treated us like family and were very patient with our French. We learned a lot and were very blessed by everyone around us.
One family we got to know there were the Bissonette's. They took an interest in our ministry and loved our little Micah! Their boys were good helpers, giving us a break every now and again. Tony ("Mr. Pony" according to Micah), gave Micah rides on the four-wheeler....the highlight of Micah's day. We look forward to keeping in touch with them for years to come!
After graduating from Word of Life in Quebec, we headed down to NC for 2 weeks to visit Stephanie's family. It was a nice break! We spent one of the 2 weeks at Myrtle Beach...ok, so we had alterior motives:)
