This week our family has been so blessed by an opportunity to present our first family seminar. We have experienced the Lord's strength being perfect in our weakness as we've stepped into this new venture. Dad and Mom have spent the evenings sharing principles from God's Word that have shaped our family -- and we kids have been leading the children's seminar with about 60 in attendence from ages 3-13. It has been a great adventure and we are so grateful for all the southern hospitality and warm fellowship of the believers here.
Thank you again for your prayers. We have really felt the Lord's hand at work through each of the evening session thus far - tonight being the final one. The evenings have been big, with lots of activies. To give you a little glimpse of what they are like...

Josiah sharing 'Elijah & the prophets of Baal'
I just have to add that working together as a team has been such a delight! Someone commented last night that "It was so neat to watch all you siblings work together and pitch in to get the job done!" I couldn't help but think, "That is the ONLY way to get it all done!" (grin) It truly is a blessed thing when brethren dwell together in unity. It so saddens my heart when siblings talk disparingly of one another. We are to encourage and build eachother up, not tear down. And as my brothers and sisters and I have worked together to get this done, we have again grown closer together. Amazing, eh? Hopefully the children will have learned something too -- not just us teachers!
