July started off with Ed & Sheila Ludlow's annual Canada Day Party (held on the 2nd this year) for the senior missionary couples, our ward elders and some people with interest (formerly called investigators). Ed cooked chicken wrapped with bacon. It was potluck salads and desserts. There was a large turn out and we all had a lot of fun.
This is Anita and her sweet daughter. She was there with her husband, Kumar. Anita is going to be baptized on July 28th. She is a wonderful, sweet lady. She is Hindi and our ward elders met her four weeks ago, just after Elder Massey (who is Hindi) arrived from India. Tender mercy from the Lord to put them together here in Brampton.
Ed and Sheila are the
I enjoyed the party too.
July 4th saw a former sweet sister, Sister Jensen, come to visit the office with her family. It was so good to see her again and meet her wonderful family. She has been home for about 3 months now.
Wednesday evening we went to dinner with Laura Pambrun who is a service missionary in the office. We went to Tandori Flame which is an Indian restaurant. The two ladies below are the greeters there and let me take their picture in their lovely dresses.
Saturday was a busy day. We went to Oshawa to have lunch with two of Mike's cousins, Shirley and Janice. Before lunch, we went to Parkwood Estates to see the gardens again. The flowers, hedges and gardens were beautiful.
Lunch was great and there was talk of a Salway "cousin" reunion!
Saturday evening was a senior missionary couple dinner. We were saying goodbye to three couples who were leaving soon - the Knights, the Roziers and us.
A good time was had by all.
It is wonderful to be with all the young missionaries and the senior couples. The enthusiasm and love of the gospel is amazing with these wonderful servants of the Lord.
