Diana and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this year by taking a "once in a lifetime" trip to five countries in Europe. This photo is of both of us at an unusual statue in Bratislava, the capital of the Slovak Republic. We also visited Germany, Austria, the Check Republic and Hungary. We had lots of fun and made some great memories!
Our family is doing very well: Susan and Tyler are kept busy in Lethbridge, Alberta, with running their businesses and also running after busy little Abby - Diana is off this week to spend time with them. Matthew and Heather (still on maternity leave), who live round the corner from us here in Waterloo, must keep track of little Ava and juggle their business. Victoria (Tory) is busy working at Chapters as she saves money for her third year at Wilfred Laurier University that begins again in the Fall. Diana enjoys helping out with the grandchildren at every opportunity and still works two days a week at Koinonia Church where we attend. My brother, Peter, from Argentina, visited us a week ago and we took a "trip sown memory lane" and had a wonderful time! As we see him so seldom we squeezed the most out of his visit.
On the ministry front I was honoured to speak at the purpose@work conference held at Muskoka Baptist Camp and Conference Centre in Huntsville, Ontario where I shared the platform with Richard Blackaby and John Hull of John Mazwell's ministry. Doors to speak at denominational conventions and in churches are opening up for me across the country and I consider it a privilege to be given these opportunities to minister and strengthen the body of Christin Canada. This weekend I speak at Bayviewglen Christian and Missionary Alliance church in Toronto. My future trips this year take me to many provinces and even in the US!

We value the prayers and friendship of so many - in this we are rich indeed.
Wishing you every blessing,
David and Diana Macfarlane
