My grandfather, Aubrey Bulmer, was a member of the infantry that landed on the coast of Normandy during the D-Day invasion. It was never something that came up in conversation. I knew some veterans didn’t like talking about it. I assumed my grandfather was one of those men. But I also didn’t want those experiences [...]


The morning brought another dose of Benedryl. This was our last, full day in Cuba. Each time Paul has brought a team to Cuba, he scheduled a personal day where the team can visit Havana, see the sites and unwind a bit. That was our plan for the day. Everyone slept in a little. I [...]


We lost an hour’s sleep due to Daylight Savings Time. Most of us compensated for the lost hour by sleeping in a bit. It was an easy fix, really. It didn’t fix the musty pillow though. Benadryl to the rescue once again. Day six was a Sunday. The night we arrived, Pastor W asked if [...]


Cathy agreed to stay with our girls so that Remi and I wouldn’t have to keep an axe-wielding vigil outside their room waiting for Santa to arrive. So, I slept better than I thought I was going to – musty pillows aside. Our visits to the countryside house churches were over. The big event of [...]


Remi and I were already into a morning routine. After we were ready, we would go down to the resort’s breakfast buffet. We would usually see some people from our team so it gave us a chance to catch up on what was going on with everyone else. We met up with Sophie, Joanna and [...]


I slept in my clothes since Havana was still cool and the musty blankets were counter-productive to sleep. Apparently the government-issued pillow wasn’t much better since I woke up stuffy and watery again. Benadryl came to the rescue. Remi and I ate breakfast. We’d postponed our morning departure a little because we got back to [...]


This is day two of our recent visit to Cuba. This is a long post. I haven’t spent a lot of time revising and condensing thoughts since I want to get it out before the memories fade too much. Even at that, I still haven’t included all the details. There may even be spelling or [...]


I recently returned from a one week visit to Cuba with 16 other people from our church. I wrote down some thoughts while I was there and I thought I would share them with you in a series of posts. My first trip to Cuba was in October of 2008 with a team from Glad [...]


Today is my oldest daughter’s graduation day. Graduations are fun. You celebrate your accomplishments. But the real excitement comes from what lies ahead. Robyn is no different. She has some great opportunities ahead of her and she’s really excited. I’m excited with her. I’m proud of the person she has become, the character she’s developed [...]


Poor Pastor Kenny. I really do enjoy drawing cartoons. Honest. However, over the last few months, the collective spare time of the family has been absorbed by this year’s Nativity Experience at Glad Tidings Church in Moncton. My wife Rhonda wrote the play in 2010 and now we are less than a week away from [...]
