~May 1st, we were honored to have a chapel service at our own Bible College... God's Bible School. Thanks, Laura and Brittany, for taking pics. ~
Moma had fried us some donuts (made out of canned biscuits...one of my favorites) for our breakfast that morning, and packed a few for our trip in this flour sack.) ~
Our kids were so THRILLED the next morning to wake up to all the FUN things they would get to do at the Millers. A fun pond, fishing, and canoeing, blowing up and letting go BIG balloons, being with the Millers, etc.~
~Yours truly playing and singing.~
We became great friends back when Phillip pastored in Phoenix, AZ....before our missionary call. Luann's the one that helped me scrapbook all of my pics before we went to the mission field. Their family and our family were VERY SAD when we had to say those hard goodbyes and leave to head to the mission field.
During our AZ days, we had a Kindergarten graduation for their Kara on the left and our Kimberly on the right! Aren't they so CUTE? (They still are! =)~
Here, Luann is showing the boys how to do some wooden puzzles. Sadly, I wasn't feeling the best that weekend. But, Dear Luann helped entertain our children and with a little help from our girls and her girls she made some Yummy meals. I did try to help when I could.~
She had such yummy goodness...that it would nearly put Starbucks out of business. =) ~
So, Kimberly, Sarah, Bethany, and Bro. Steve played violins, Kara played a viola, Matt played a cello, and I played the piano on a fun arrangement of "Just a Closer Walk with Thee."
It turned out so pretty and so fun...I think we could have played together all day. =D~
Kimberly and Kara, and Bethany and Sarah dressed in matching colors that morning since they were playing the offertory together. =)~
We are SO HAPPY that Jesus worked it out for us to spend this time with them!! We love them to PIECES!!! =D~
She was VERY NERVOUS when she first got into the water ...but it didn't take her long until she was "swimming" all the way to the deep end...with a floaty suit on.
She looked like a little tadpole...her legs and arms were going everywhere. =D ~
Right now we are headed to Mitchell, SD, for our service tomorrow night. TODAY will be a L.O.N.G. travel day for us...about 10-12 hours on the road.
Thanks for praying...we so APPRECIATE God keeping us safe mile after mile, and helping us service after service. =)
