We were welcomed to a wonderful Sunday service beginning at 10 am this morning. Pastor Daniel opened the service by preparing our hearts for worship with communion. Isabella, Pastor Daniel’s daughter, led us in a wonderful worship service. We sang and praised God for an hour with music in French and English. Pastor Daniel’s son-in-law, Ben, and son, Jean Daniel played guitar, acoustic and bass, as well. What a blessing seeing a family working in ministry together! Scott was called forward to deliver and present our Temple love offering. It was very well received. Thank you all for your very generous gifts! It was wonderful for those of you that were not here in person to be here in spirit with us during the morning service. Scott gave a wonderful sermon on not losing heart. He delivered a passionate message to the church about not becoming too discouraged when times are difficult or trying. He preached from Luke 18:1-8. After church we were all able share a wonderful meal together at Pastor Daniel’s home and his wife Josie is a phenomenal cook and we have eaten very well! Josie does not speak any English but she is having a good time listening to us and we are having a wonderful experience listening to her. We were able to learn more about the French and Quebec after lunch today with Pastor Daniel. We later went on a drive around the city and hit the super market. Pastor Daniel shared with us a very moving story about God leading the church to its present location. He spoke about the church praying week after week and about dreams and visions and miracles. Pastor Daniel and the church have been very faithful to God and God has been very present in their ministry. We have learned a lot today about Canada, Quebec, Montreal, and the importance of hockey!
