NCHEA Preparations

Once again we've begun the massive process of preparing for the annual Kid's Conference held in conjunction with our state home school convention. Our theme for this year is "Westward -- Living our lives by God's design" and we are so excited about the message, music, drama, Bible verses, character lessons, costumes, decor, activities, and...well,... you get the idea!

This week our days have been filled with assorted projects as we're doing our best to make an entire ol'West town out of cardboard and paint. With many thanks to Mom for her artistic input, we've been drawing, painting, and stepping back to enjoy the progress!

Anna, the official prop/costume coordinator joined us for two very full days of work.
And yes -- we had a 'girls french braid day'!!

Thanks for the great times, Anna!


The Kid's Conference starts next Thursday with an all-day staff training. We'd greatly appreciate your prayers as we prepare to share with 70+ other teens, ministering to almost 300 children all day Friday and Saturday.

May the Lord be glorified!
