Home Happenings


The seasons are changing here in the heartland. And with it, the flurry of activity around our home. Here's a glimpse of just a few of our activities over the past week: 
  • Shopping for new coordinating outfits
  • Practicing for our upcoming trip to the Bible Bee next week (a shout-out to Bible-Bee friends!)
  • Scheduling and preparing for our upcoming Spring tour (stay tuned)!
  • Pushing to get our fall fieldwork finished before winter arrives.
  • Traveling and ministering together on the weekends.

And here are a few pictures:



Our guys finished the last of their sandblasting and painting jobs. What a satisfying feeling to be done before the snow flies! 


And what are Saturdays for but to clean out all our work trucks and organize our supply inventory.


Cleaning out the work trucks


Time to get them all sparkling again!


Susanna, making a surprise treat.


We're so grateful for our hyper-productive garden this year. We cleared it off and have it tilled under, ready for Spring!


Most evenings we've spent with our instruments, practicing. 

And there you have it -- our week in a nutshell!

"We give thanks to You, O God, we give thanks!
For Your wondrous works declare that Your name is near."

Ps 75:1

Hello Wissmann Family,
I love the pictures! You all are truly a blessing from God in my life! I love listening to your songs! You all sing and play your instrumants marvelously! You daughters are fine Godly Christian young ladies and they are so gorgeous! I love there hair styles and they have great smiles! Your sons are fine Godly Christian young men.
Your parents are a great example of working together in a marriage in the good times and bad times.
I pray i can meet you all someday in person!
Do you all everythink that you all will be in Maryland or close to Maryland?
In Christ,
Lexi

Maybe you can fit Virginia into that spring schedule? I would love to hear you in person!

Looks like you all have been pretty busy. Ya'll have a pretty big garden. But for a family your size.... We have a hard enough time keeping up with our garden and we don't travel all over the US!

Keep up the good work.
