And at the Canucks game, I discovered that my big screen enthusiasm has finally paid off! The cameraman (I think he gets to choose-and he is one who often puts me on the big screen) selected me to be the gameworn jersey winner! So not only did I get on the big screen, but I also got to go downstairs later on to meet a player and get my jersey.
It was an incredibly exciting game and so great to watch the Canucks win in the shoot-out. Then my brother and I went downstairs after and got to meet Keith Ballard and he signed his game worn jersey. It was kind of surreal standing down there and saying hi to all the players as they walked by randomly. And I got a nice, damp jersey out of the deal! Okay, I have washed it since so it now smells like laundry detergent, but soon I will hopefully frame it and find somewhere to put it on display!
Below is pictured the newest little love of my life. He is super tiny but a sheer delight and I loved snuggling with him!
And more babies! At the baby shower it was so great to be able to see a lot of my family and also catch up with some of the little ones. :)
Who wouldn't take a self-portrait of themselves and the baby??
After a few days of enjoying friends and family, I headed to Vancouver where I set up our booth and stood by it all weekend. Other than my feet being on fire and incredibly sore, it was a fantastic weekend. How wonderful to be able to meet so many people, see old friends and share the life of Christ together. Every day I went back to my hotel room feeling incredibly blessed and grateful that we serve an incredible God. It was neat to see all the different organizations that are sharing Christ in so many different locations and capacities. I find it ironic that I had never attended Missions Fest in Vancouver until I moved away. But if all goes as planned, I will return next year!
And that is all for now! Thankful for a wonderful week and excited to be back in Quebec along with the freezing cold and snow. Must put away the flip flops for a while again. Until next time!
