How scary is that thought? At first!

After much reading and educating myself, my husband and I decided to take the risk!

My husband, Mike, is the writer and author. He says that he was high tech once but now he is low tech!

That’s why I, Elfriede, handle everything else. So, you will mostly hear from me on this blog.

A little about who we are:

Mike is a US citizen and Canadian permanent resident.  He spent 26 years in the US Air Force. He was nine years with the Wings of Blue parachute team at the U.S. Air Force Academy, an instructor and the Superintendent of Parachuting Operations at the Academy. Mike accumulated 2,000 parachute jumps and 15 hours of freefall. He retired with the highest enlisted rank of Chief Master Sergeant.

I, Elfriede am a Canadian citizen, born and raised in Germany. I worked in foreign trade, trade shows and traveled for different companies worldwide. Now I am a housewife which is the best job ever!

I love to cook and bake from scratch (and experiment).  A good thing is that Mike loves to eat!  This makes for a perfect match!

We live in the Canadian Rocky Mountains surrounded by 6 National Parks. We both like to exercise, cross country ski, hike, garden, and walk our dog Kansas.

We both believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of God and have a passion for studying God’s Word!


How do you explain to a Canadian Immigration Officer that we met in Seventh Heaven?

Author: Mike and Elfriede

For the past 15 years Michael Copple has studiously devoted his life to the Lord by preaching the Gospel and moderating Bible studies. He is a 1958 Eagle Scout, holds a B.S. degree in electrical engineering, and achieved the highest US Air Force enlisted rank of Chief Master Sergeant with over 26 years service, one year of which was with Forward Air Control duties in Vietnam. For three years he was the senior enlisted member of the US Air Force Academy Wings of Blue Parachute Team; he has performed over 2,000 parachute jumps and accumulated over 15 hours of freefall. During his parachuting years Mike experienced a mishap of being a “hung jumper” outside the aircraft, and serious parachute malfunctions like a deadly seesaw night jump entanglement with another jumper, and an 85 mph wind shear which almost took his life. This experience inspired and qualified him to author the novel Calling from the Sky. A former world-wide electronic service engineer for 16 years with a semiconductor equipment manufacturer, he and his wife Elfriede currently live in the Canadian Rockies surrounded by 6 National Parks. Besides studying God's Word, they both like to exercise, cross country ski, hike, garden, and walk their dog Kansas. Visit him at
