Preparing...

Today our house is filled with the sounds and sights of packing to head on the road again. Although this time the piles of necessary items are accented with an unusual conglomeration of various props and supplies. That's right, it's time to head to North Dakota for Prairie Bible Camp!

Every year this has been a highlight for our family as we share 4 days of action-packed learning with youth from the area. The past few years we've had around 60-70 youth in attendance, and we're looking forward to what the Lord has in store for 2007.

Ruth and Elizabeth work on creating a 1900's motorcar for our 3-part drama. Ruth, especially, is our 'prop extraordinaire' and has been creating various 'scenes' for us this week.

And we've been working on the script, too. Poor, dear 'Mrs. Peters'!

Our theme for the week is "Heart of the Matter" -- focusing our learning around the parable of the Sower and 'heart/soil conditions'. We would greatly appreciate your prayers for our family; Thomas, Abi, and Anna Rehm; and five local youth who will be serving with us this year.

Pray for our hearts to be open and sensitive to the Lord and His Word. Pray for the hearts of each of the children (ages 5-18) who will be coming. Oh yes, and we continue to pray for sunshine! [smile] We'll do our best to keep you posted!

"...But the [seed] that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience."
Luke 8:15

May God accomplish His will, and ways in all of our lives this week, and give us wisdom as we seek Him!

See you soon! :)
