I have just finished the first week of a Parish Mission here in the parish of St. Joseph's in Grande Prairie, Alberta, CANADA.  The As I was walking last Sunday along Bear Creek, which is a city park here which goes for miles around the University of  Grand Prairied as well as for miles out towards the countryside, I saw these adventurous magpies fishing in what is now, two days later a frozen lake.
The sunsets here are truly in but "out of this world".  Here is one on Flying  Shot Lake.
Finally, I show you a picture of Luisa, my friend and coordinator of the Spanish speaking mission from last week.  With her are Marvin and myself.  We are in front of the newly constructed St. Joseph Parish Belltower which was rung for the first time last Sunday, Nov. 7th-2010
Finally my loving and faith-filled "hosts"--- Roger and Angel Field who have filled me with faith, love, cinnamon rolls and a great desire to do the famous CAMINO PILGRIMAGE in Spain to the Shrine of  St. James Compostella.  I love these two people as they do me.

Bohemian Waxwings in Grande Prairie

These are, I believe, a hearty flock of Bohemian Waxwings  that enjoy the berry trees here in Grande Prairie, Alberta CANADA.
AND HERE IS A BEAUTIFUL PAPER MACHE PICTURE OF THE "SOWER GOING OUT TO SOW THE SEED.  It was created by the children here in St. Joseph's Parish here for this week's parish mission in Grande Prairie, Alberta, CANADA.
