Music & Ministry

This weekend our family had a special treat -- our dear friends, the Marlin Bontrager family, ministered in a local church. This was the first time we've been able to hear them 'in person', and their message was a great encouragement, bringing both tears and smiles to my heart. And we got the extra blessing of spending Monday together. How good it is to "exhort one another...as [we] see the Day approaching!" (Heb10:25)

We are greatly looking forward to ministering together with the Bontragers this summer. If you're looking for some great family-time, please join us at the Lake Itasca Family Music Festival, or Village Creek Family Camp!
