Photos of Our Trip to Canada

In April, 2006 Kathy and I took a trip to two places in Ontario, Canada. The first place was to see Kathy's relatives and friends who live in Leamington, a small town not far from Windsor and Windsor's American sister city, Detroit.


The next two photos are of Kathy's grandfather Jacob Thiessen where he grew up in Russia. Kathy's relatives are German. They were among many Mennonites who were invited to work the fields in Russia by Katherine the Great. During the Bolshevik Revolution in the early 1900's her relatives fled to various places including Canada and Brazil. The boy I have circled in the first photo is Jacob Thiessen.


After Leamington we headed east to Stouffville, Ontario to visit our friends Walt and Wennie Robbins, Bernard and Hazel Hull, and others meeting together there as a church. The first photo, though completely different than 28 years ago, is the country road on which I proposed to Kathy in 1978. It was nicer back then! We have visited this area many times through the years. The people in the church there has had an important affect on our lives through the years.
