Choir 78 was treated to an amazing day of fun, games and relaxation recently. Uncle Joseph and his wife Ria, who own a farm in Edson, Alberta; invited us to spend the day with his family and friends.
We got there and the fun immediately started as we took turns going down the zip line. Afterwards we split into teams and played a soccer match where the scores were draw at the end.

Afterwards it was time for barbecue, as we had burgers and hotdogs. That was followed by ice cream and cake!

To crown it all off, we got into a big circle and the children laid hands on and prayed for everyone present. We are so grateful to Uncle Joe and Aunt Ria for an unforgettable time.

Recently our travels saw us go through the town of Drumheller. This Province of Alberta is famous for being the dinosaur capital of the world. There were several sculptures and posters of dinosaurs all around the city. But none was quite as amazing as the one we found marked the “World’s Largest Dinosaur”. It was such a big statue that the children were able to sit at its feet. And it got better! We all got to climb up into its mouth and look down to the rest of the town. We climbed the long flight of stairs past some interesting pictures of dinosaurs to look at and take pictures with. This certainly goes down as one of the most memorable experiences of the tour that none of the children and adults will forget.
Keep checking on us to see what out next adventure will be!!!

Choir 78’s tour of Canada reached the halfway point. And after three months of hard work, it was time to relax and unwind at Brightwood Camp. The children had fun climbing the wall and doing puzzles. They also got the opportunity to ride horses for the first time.
Once that was done, they had even more fun painting one of the horses. Later that week, we all had the chance to meet our new country director, Lorne Hamyln. We had an amazing time and we’re fully rested and energized for the next three months.
