Heading North...

This morning we're all packed and ready to drive out the driveway. Unfortunately, a minor and unexpected bus repair is hindering our departure, but this gives me a few moments to upload some pictures and give a quick update on what we'll be doing in the coming week.

It's camp time again! For the last several years, early June means a trip up to visit our friends in North Dakota for a full week of kids activities at Prairie Bible Camp. This year is no exception and we're looking forward to what the Lord has for us in the coming days.

Our theme this year is "Far Out" -- focusing on the majesty and detail of our world and universe -- and ultimately the Creator and sustainer of life, Jesus Christ. While we older children have been working on multiple projects concerning the musical, Mom and the younger ones have been preparing props for camp. It's been quite the science class!

Paint, paint paint!

The planets in our solar system -- obviously not to scale!

We'd appreciate your prayers this week. Camp kids start arriving tomorrow afternoon at 3 -- and we have lots to do before then! May the Lord be glorified!

Stay tuned....

"For by Him all things were created
that are in heaven and that are on earth,
visible and invisible,
whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.
All things were created through Him and for Him.
And He is before all things,
and in Him all things consist."
Colossians 1:16-17

God Bless. Too bad we live as far away as we do. I'd love to meet your family.

I'm sure you know how much I desperately wish I could be there. camp here is good, but nothing replaces PBC. Updates required as well as many pictures.
