Montreal – Day 20

Day 20, in Montreal. At 6 a.m. we took our grandson Bruno V to the airport as he was heading home after 2 fun weeks with us. He was so helpful in the locks where 2 people are needed to man the lock wall lines. His plane left on time at 8:30 a.m. Cari and I then went to visit the LDS Temple, which was beautiful. Then back for a late lunch in Old Montreal and then talked to our kids by phone, email and texts about our new church assignment. We received it in yesterday’s mail that is being forwarded to a daughter. We were asked by our church to go to Germany for 18 months to help young under-employed adults with small-loan financing to help them develop useful job/trade skills. We will leave Dec. 30, two months after we get back from our summer trip. We are thrilled and excited to go and try to help others!

It continues to rain much of the day and is to continue well into next week.

  2. Congratulations, Bruno and Cari, on your mission calling! Keep having fun, and we’ll see you in August.

  3. Hi Cari and Bruno,

    Jake and I spent some time in Germany when Justin was studying there. We probably wouldn’t have gone, otherwise, but we were so happy we did. We even took a class to learn how to speak German, though all we could do was count to 100 and utter a few phrases. I’ve enjoyed following your trip and hope to see you come under the Bourne Bridge or wave to you from our beach on Buzzard’s Bay.

    Be well,
    Debbie

    • We are thrilled with the opportunity to live in Germany for a year and a half. Bruno speaks German fluently and will now help me to learn the language. Not easy! We will look forward to seeing you later this summer and definitely we will get together.

      Love,

      Cari
