Old Threshers



It was a wonderful reunion. We're so grateful to have most of the family together (we greatly missed Josiah & Andrew's) with time to visit and make memories together. Thankful for opportunities for conversations and ministry to the hundreds of guests at the Old Thresher's Reunion. Grateful for continued friendships with so many dear friends in this area. 

And grateful that Bethany captured some great pictures to share: 


Fun conversations


Time with friends


Arianna never lacked for attention!


Susanna was a "Sweet Sixteen" hostess for the event, dressing up in elegant 1800 attire each day and volunteering at many of the service booths. 


Time to relax


And enjoy our dear grandparents


Meeting our sweet cousin for the first time


Grandpa knows how to win this girl's heart!


Old fashioned trolly rides


Grateful for the tender joys of family love. 


"Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit
 in sincere love of the brethren, 
love one another fervently with a pure heart,"
1 Peter 1:22

Sarah --

The new cousin is actually our cousin's baby, Riley. Mom's sister lives near Mt. Pleasant, so we always enjoy getting to see our first cousins during the reunion. Thanks for the comment!!
