A few notes about Mississauga

Mississauga is probably one of the least known cities in Canada, even by Canadians.  A lot of that probably has to do with our close proximity to Toronto.

But did you realize that Canada's sixth largest city with 730,000 residents and 55,000 businesses, including 61 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional head offices?

Yes, the traffic can be bad here and people drive too fast. Yes, we do not have a decent local paper.  But I must say that I like living here.  And we are certainly NOT just a part of Toronto.

You're just saying that so you can say you don't cheer for that Toronto football team. BTW - they suck. Then again in a couple of weeks I'm sure you'll be saying the same thing about the Stampeders.
I'm going to the grey cup this year...I'm sure it will be Sask versus Montreal and I'll get frost bite in places I care not mention but it will be fun... bbbrrrrrr. Actually I was hoping Edmonton would do the crossover and there would have been a chance for a Calgary versus Edmonton Grey Cup but the best I can ask for now is BC versus Calgary... that's a pipedream ...Montreal is gonna kick butt.

We thank the Lord for sustaining your health and keeping your voice strong for the persecuted.

Our prayer time this month will be for the VOM. The testimonies of the persecuted are a continual challenge to us to live with eternity's values in view.
