Old Threshers








Get Ready...













...Get Set...







... Go!

Thank you all for your prayers this weekend. The Old Threshers Reunion in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa is always a highlight for our family. The sights, smells, and sounds are one of a kind -- filled with tractors, trains, trolleys, horses, living history and,... well, you get the picture! We have a full schedule, too, as most days we share a couple times under the large family tent.

We are especially grateful for this opportunity as it is a secular -- though family friendly -- event. When we first sang here in 2000, we were one of the first 'gospel groups' introduced for many years, and were surprised and encouraged by the crowd's enthusastic responce. What a blessing it is to proclaim the plan of salvation through song and testimony at an event where it wouldn't otherwise be heard! We covet your prayers!!!

"For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard."
Acts 4:20

It was a joy to come and listen to your family. They all have such wonderful voices both the girls and guys. It is great to see God using your family to bless others. I hope that you have a great trip home and will be praying for your whole family Plus being a lover of God and music your songs touch my heart in a special way along with the message of hope that you give others. God Bless
