But we are in process of developing a Teaching and Missions Exposure Module specifically designed for people who live in Canada and the <span class="caps">US</span> who are hungry to grow but have limited time.

He said yes and they just finished their &#8220;volleyball clinic&#8221; and tryouts are today. He is really loving it! And the kids love having dad up there too!
