Across the street from the mission office is the Metro. Our windows look right out on in. In front of the Metro I often see these little cuties walking. In fact all throughout the city you can see little groups of children walking together holding onto a common rope. I think they are so adorable as they walk along.

The lady in the picture above is Sister Booth. She prepared the lunch for everyone. She has been cooking for the Ottawa zone conference, every 3 months, for the past 14 years. I think she is amazing. I cannot even imagine doing that. She is a woman of dedication and hard work. She does the whole thing herself and does not accept any help. Yesterday she fixed chicken tetrazinni, corn, green beans, rolls, and a raspberry, nut, green salad. For dessert she served some sort of a pound cake that had been soaked in some sort of a fruit sauce and had fruit in it. It was topped with whipped cream and had a cookie on the side. Everything was absolutely delicious. The table was set with nice dishes and a candy cane at each place setting. Afterwards there were also after dinner chocolates. We are sure thankful for her selfless service to the missionaries. She is waiting for her son, the father of several of her grandchildren to return home from Afghanistan in 3 weeks. We pray for his safe return.

The two couples on the right are from the Stake presidency.
The senior couples help prepare and serve the meal. Sister Howard on the far right does almost all of the cooking and planning. She and Elder Howard work with the young adults and the center. I think they have the best calling. I loved working with the young adults and the missionaries
On Thursday we had the Isle de Montreal and the Rive Sud combined conference.
