We had district meeting in Belleville again on Tuesday. Everyone was asked to prepare a talk on Faith and Expectations. Fortunately, we didn't have to give our talks. At times we feel like we must not have much faith, since not much is happening here. We discovered a quote by President Uchtdorf, however that helps, "Love is the measure of our faith, the inspiration for our obedience, and the true altitude of our discipleship." If our faith is measured by the love we have for the people rather than the results we see, maybe we do have a little faith.

On our walk Wednesday morning we passed by the farmer's market to see if they had any sweet corn yet (not yet). The market is small, but there are a few items and even a busker playing the violin. There is an antique shop we had not been in, so we went in to look around.

Thursday was our Pearl of Great Price class. It takes a long time to prepare the lessons, but we enjoy teaching the class.
We took another long walk around the canal on Friday morning. We saw several Cedar Waxwings flying from tree to tree. We recognized them even though we had never seen them before.
We decided it was time to see Lang Pioneer Village, by Peterborough. We had passed by there during the winter, but everything was closed and there were sheets of ice at the mill. We really enjoyed our visit, stepping back in time to the 19th century.

Just as we were leaving for church on Sunday morning we got a call from the primary president informing us that she wasn't feeling well and wouldn't be there. Naturally, Sister Wheeler pitched in (along with Sister Holt - Campbellford) and ran the primary. It would help to have a little time to prepare. Brother and Sister Lalonde were visiting from Kingston. We didn't want them to travel back to Kingston on empty stomaches so we invited them to the apartment for lunch. We didn't know what we were going to eat, but Sister Wheeler came up with a nice, quick meal.

Another week (and month) has gone by. We are not certain what next week will bring, but we saw an interesting plaque in the mission home.
