After the Storm

We could understand why they closed the roads yesterday
Marc's bus was in the ditch and by these temperatures
that is not fun. Our truck said -29C
Another layer on the snowbanks
On route to Genesis in Travers city Michigan
It's kind of fun to go for a drive in the morning
The snow plow hadn't been here yet
lots of steam coming from the barns
the road where the bus was stuck
These guys have seen a lot of snow
Milk truck day
Garage window

Snow Squalls

When Olga and Stephen left yesterday the sun was shining and the weather was nice. Today all the roads are closed

Olga was blessed to see these friend at church

they had a friend get-together earlier with even more friends
the little group is expanding with
 husbands and kids

Bringing Marc's snowmobile away to get fixed, the lights didn't work

a short ride for Olga, but fun

The SHIP Sunday Evening

Stephen practising the sermon for the SHIP
We ate together
after set-up and before prayer
Did Jesus rise from the death
I listened to Stephen practising but found myself distracted
Later when he did it "for real" and it was the only thing I did
it was so much better.
made me think of the parable of the 4 fields
thistles, path, rocks and good soil
The word is good but we are the field and
when we are distracted the word can't do much
We have had so much positive feedback for both Olga & Stephen
hope they will bring the message again sometime
For us it was a very good day

Trimming the Hedge

Our hedge is accessible with snowshoes

Less snow on this side, but I only cut those branches sticking up
they were harder to trim in the summer
Have to go back for some big branches

Wild Turkeys

Rien spotted the wild Turkeys already
when they were still on the way to the farm
They walked right by the house
Going through the deep snow
They've been seen before
Rien thinks they like the Brewers Grain

Looking for Owls finding Hawks

Rien drove and I took the camera along
So many Hawks are up in trees
as soon as you slow down they take off
One of these days I hope to get a real close-up

with the Snowmobile to Church

looks a little different in the parking lot
It took Marc a little over an hour
A great day for snowmobiling
Drayton is not on the trails, except a short side trail
just to get gas
