Snowless in Quebec

We’re probably having the worst winter I’ve ever seen here in Quebec. I even wonder if we didn’t get more rain than snow so far… I was filled with hope last fall as I was praying for God to reveal himself to a specific crew of local snowboarders and for him to use me for the kingdom’s sake. March is here and nothing tangible happened, except maybe the fact that my snowboarding improved. I also did some laps with a couple guys of the crew, but hardly got to know them better.

I realize that preparation for winter was good regarding the outcome. God is teaching me to be more sensitive to where the spirit is at work and to discern when to speak and when to remain quiet cause in the end, only God can reconcile his people to himself.

But it’s snowing as I’m writing to you and I plan to compete (what I never done before) at two different events this weekend in which the crew I’ve been praying for is most likely to partake as well. I still believe God can blow my mind once again, showing up as I tighten my bindings and press on to him.

Finally, the highlight of this season for me was the weight of God’s Love crushing me as I was worshipping him alone in my room during the conference in Minnesota. Here was the view from my room.


“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
– Jeremiah 29:13

Grace of our Lord be with you

In Christ,
