A Week of Activity

We arrived home last Monday -- to a delightful surprise left by some of our dear friends! They had sabotaged our home with sweet messages, notes, and even two amazing cheesecakes. It was good to be home, if even for just a week. And really, we packed allot of action into those seven days! Here's a quick -- and partial -- report!

Sewing...sewing...sewing!

With the Branson opportunity just around the corner, we had a massive stack of sewing and shopping projects to complete -- around 40 new outfits' worth! So with our arrival home, we set up the sewing factory and went to work.

The Lord answered so many specific prayers -- including the provision of exactly the right fabrics, accents, and clothing we needed. We were even able to find some excellent items at the thrift store to help defray costs. God is good!


Our grandparents all came to visit for the weekend, and were such a blessing with a variety of projects!


And of course, we're ever-so-grateful for Anna's generous help as she spent literally hours every day at the machine, joyfully serving. Anna -- what would we do without you?! [smile]

Sorting through last year's costumes.

And making sure we have something for everyone!

We also worked on a filming project -- a new 10 minute 'Pre-Show' video.

Haircuts

Filling CD orders

And re-packing for Branson

And two bridal showers for Andrew & Kori
[more pictures to come!]

Thank you for your prayers! We're currently in Branson, preparing for the upcoming opportunity here during the Christmas season. We have lots and lots of music practice ahead, and especially covet your prayers as we coordinate this year's program! Stay tuned...

"Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue." 2 Peter 1:2-3
