Our ePiC a D v E n T u R e !!


That’s it, we moved to British Columbia (Western Canada), more precisely to Vancouver Island and we now live in Shawnigan Lake! Since Sunday, July 27, we are settling in while enjoying the beautiful summer on the Island.

For the record, this is our 10th move and it was the most relaxed and easy we ever had! Because, we didn’t have to pack anything ourselves (no fatigue), so we decided to make the trip with our car from Edmonton to Shawnigan Lake through the mountains!

Here are some pictures of our beautiful, amazing, indescribable and unforgettable adventure, blessed by the Lord.

Thanks to all of you who have prayed for and thought of us!

We have seen strange things and we thought we were on the planet Mars…IMG_3034

It was a relief when we saw this sign “the best place on earth.” We were in the right direction!IMG_3042

After 1200 km, we arrived at the ferry going from Vancouver to Victoria20140727_212812557_iOSIMG_3132IMG_3163

We were so fascinated by the islands crossed that we dreamed of buying this one!20140727_225741612_iOS

And after 16 hours of travel, one night in Kamloops, we finally arrived home safe and sound and thankful to God!20140728_004810208_iOS20140728_013707575_iOS

 

 

 

School Is OVER!!!!


It’s official, since yesterday: in Edmonton, the school is over, it is holidays youpie! Our kids had a blessed school year.

The system here suits them so much. After our return from Burkina Faso in 2010, Daniel and Michael had continued their studies in Dutch in Belgium. Despite these two-year break with English, they impressed us with their good results. Each received a big congratulation from their schools for their efforts. We are proud of them!

The big surprise is our two miracles: Nema and Dara. They started grade 3 in September 2013 with the kindergarten level (they could neither speak, read nor write in English) to reach their current level in all subjects assigned in English. Congratulations girls!

Now, time for well deserved rest! Happy Holidays to ALL!!

Moving… again!!!


A year ago, in this same period, we were packing for our move to Canada, Edmonton. I vividly remember all the stress, insomnia and tiredness during two months!

After one year, we are again in the process of moving, this time to British Columbia, Vancouver Island.  We have never been so relaxed, enjoying the beautiful summer in Edmonton! The reason: our stuff will be packed and unpacked by movers. So, we really feel blessed and we are enormously grateful to God.

 

A few days ago, we found our home in Vancouver Island. What a relief! Once again, God was faithful. The house is in Shawnigan Lake, a dream location with its lakes, ocean and mountains, the view is breathtaking!

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!  😉
