Family Camp

Camp has officially begun! Thankfully, our health is on the mend and we have arrived in northeastern Iowa -- land of trees, towering bluffs, and the Mississippi river.

And its also home to Village Creek Bible Camp where sixteen families have gathered for a time of encouragement and fellowship. We'd appreciate your prayers these next few days as we study and learn together. Daddy will be teaching during the evening sessions and various ones of us will be pitching in; sharing and helping with other activities -- from Andrew leading music to Mom and the older girls teaching Bible verses and special mother/daughter sessions. Our desire is that this week would be a time of both refreshing and vision-sharing.

Thank you for joining us in this prayer! We will look forward to sharing testimonies and pictures in the upcoming days!


"The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." Isaiah 58:11

Yay! an update :). Nice pictures, and I sure am glad to hear you're all on the mend! Praise God for that!! I'll be keeping you in my prayers in the week ahead. Can't wait to hear what the Lord's doing in your lives and in the lives of those you minister to.

Hey, the pictures look great. We were just wondering if there were any games of floor hockey or anything like that? We were also wondering if there were pictures of Andrew being blobed? Or if there was any pictures of Stephen Zipping across the valley on the zip line? Or if anyone has conquered the trampoline? If they have any of those things there. Is Matthias still on his sick bed? Has Husker Hanni turned into a Hawkeye fan yet? Has Rachel found the perfect piece of cake? These are just some questions that are laying heavy on our mind.

We have noticed that Kori or Da Fred haven't responded yet and we are wondering if they are stuggling with the same questions we are???? We are very concerned about them.

Just letting you know that we are thinking of you and praying for you all.
