~Getting to go back to my home in LA!~

While riding down the road together and singing Christmas songs, Kimberly said that she wished that there was a Fall song to sing...because she wanted to enjoy Fall while it was here. So, we made up this song to the tune of Jingle Bells.
Falling leaves, Pretty Trees, Making Fall Mem'ries
A cup of warm apple cidar helps us not to freeze.
Falling leaves, Pretty Trees, Making Fall Mem'ries
A cup of warm apple cidar helps us not to freeze.

Yellow, orange and brown, watch those leaves fall down
All around the town, covering the ground.
Cinnamon and spice, Make the season nice,
Count your blessings TWICE,
And Thank Jesus Christ!

Please pray for Alberta and Alba and their family ministering in Medellin, Colombia.
~When I was a teenager my Daddy pastored a church in Ponchatoula, La. We were so happy that we got to go back and see our dear friends in this church. Here is a fun pic of Bro. Kendall and Noah with their cowboy boots.~
~My good friend Kimberly and I.~
~Kimberly took this pic of our family in front of their new church building.~
~The Craguns invited us and the Neuenswanders over for a yummy snack.~

~Our Christian Nation Church Congress.~

~We drove back to Ohio and our dear friends Rob and Deanna had us over for a very yummy meal!! Thanks bunches!!

~The next day we drove up to Marietta, Ohio for our Christian Nation church Congress. The Beckers, Pilmores and Ryans rode in the church van and we drove up in the mission helps van that we had been using. (This was right before the MIRACLE of us getting to use the Demints' nice motorhome. =) On the way, we stopped for a bite of supper. (They really teased us about our tall "Raspberry lemonades" looking like spiked drinks. They weren't, I promise. =)
~Someone paid for our family to stay in a motel room the night before the Congress. Here Kimberly, Susanna, and I are eating the continental breakfast provided by the hotel.~
~I was extremely thrilled to catch this pose of my good friend/"enemy" Rob Ryan riding a horse in front of Kmart. =) Used by permission. =D~
~Our kids singing during the CNC Congress.~
~Our table at the Congress.~
~Bro. Eisenhart and Phillip looking at a neat record book from CNC.~
~Bro. Justice holding Elijah.~
~Our family in front of the Ohio river which is right in front of where the CNC Congress was held.~

~This pic of Elijah cracked me up. Something must have crushed his feelings and so he just crawled up to this little chair and laid his head down and wept. After I snapped this pic I picked him up and comforted him. What a cutie. =)

~Meeting more of the Family of God in PA!~

Please help us remember in prayer Pastor Jimmy, Sis. Farly, Lady and Gaby in Colombia, that God would encourage them in Him today.
~We spent 2 days and 3 nights at Penn View. Their rooms are so nice and comfortable! Our kids enjoyed playing on their playgrounds.~

~We were privileged to speak in chapel at Penn View. Bro. Mowery took this picture of our family after our service.~
~Bro. Mowery and Elijah. We were in Bro. Mowery's office to hear the song "Faces" by Greater Vision. That song made me cry and encouraged me about what we are trying to do for Jesus in Colombia.~
~Wednesday night we had a service in a part of PA that was new to our family. We were glad to meet the nice church people and pastor Brandon Byler. This is Elijah inside the camper that we stayed in that night.~
~We thought that our host and hostess had a beautiful home, so we snapped this picture. Several ladies from this church gave me a gift bag full of nice Creative Memories scrapbooking things. It was very sweet and thoughtful of them!!~

~Traveling in New York~

~We got to have a service at Pierpont Manor, NY and enjoyed getting to know the Perry Case family! Bro. Case is so funny he had us howling laughing the whole time. Here they were peeling potatoes for Sunday dinner. Since they wouldn't let me help, I took their picture. =)~
~I thought this was a fun pic of Elijah pulling a wagon full of toys.~
~A family picture in front of our missions display.~
~Eating dinner after our service.~
It was fun getting to see my good friend Juanita and her family at our service in Northville, NY.
~It was so nice spending time with the Merle Hock family in Northville, NY. Here the kids were doing homeschooling together on Monday before we left their home.~
~The Hock family and ours having family devotions together.~
~Our kids loved this tire swing.~
~The Hocks took us by to see this lake on our way out of town. We really enjoyed getting to spend time with their family.~

~Doing deputation all the way up in Canada.~

Have we taken time to read our Bible and pray today? =)
~Our family was happy to get to go back to Kingston, Ontario Canada for a service and get to see our dear friends there. I didn't get pictures of everyone, but here are a few of the people we got to see.
Bro. and Sis. Holden holding Elijah.~

~Bro. and Sis. Wilson and Sis. Wood and Elijah.~
~We were so happy to get to meet Joseph and Clarissa Krohn. This is when my back was OUT and I was in bed a lot while we were there. (I want to THANK THE LORD again for touching my back!! I didn't know HOW I was going to keep traveling around the world with a bad back. =) The Krohns were so kind to our family. We really enjoyed our stay with them.~
~We then went on up to North Gower and stayed a couple days with our long time friends the Reg Wilsons. We had a service in their home on Friday night. Our kids loved being on their farm and seeing all the animals.~
~Trying to pet the sheep.~
~It was fun riding around on their 4 wheeler too. =) The Wilsons came to our service at Pierpont Manor, NY on Sunday morning, to bring us some things that we had left at their house. =)~

~Some fun pics of our kids~

Some pics of our kids that I have snapped as we have traveled. God has given us a good deputation so far, and has kept His hand upon us and for that we are very grateful! =)
