A Wonderful Family Christmas and Back to Los Angeles

All nine grandchildren on one bed!
All nine grandchildren on one bed!
From December 21 - 26, all of Martyn and Marg's family spent many glorious hours together at the Sunset Inn and Suites in downtown Vancouver.  The families arrived from North Vancouver (Julia and Craig, Sebastian, Paulina and Hugo Smith); Veracruz Mexico (Rachel and Roy, Roy Jr. and Valentina Vazquez); Toronto, Ontario (Christina and Sam and Anahita and Rustom); Quito, Ecuador (Esther and Juan, Maria Leticia and Juan de Dios Almeida) and Burlington Vermont (Leah).  Most of the story of our time together is best seen in photos.  God has definitely blessed us with a healthy, happy extended family!

December 27th saw most of the family on the BC Ferries and off to visit Martyn's brother and his family in Victoria at the ancestral home, Mamre Oaks.  What a great time was had with Paul's wife, Adriann and daughter Marian serving up a traditional tea for all hands and their son, David joining in on the festivities.

Most of the story of our Christmas is best said with the accompanying photos.  Most of them taken by our youngest daughter, Leah.

Now back in Los Angeles with renewed energy and looking forward to working with LAMI on going forward and renewing the vitality of the programs and staff and crew.  The Irving Johnson, Exy Johnson and Swift of Ipswich are our projects for 2013 and we look forward to the challenges ahead.
