This fall we were in Oklahoma for a Native evangelism conference, which was geared for encouraging and equipping believers. The boys and Dad were the tech team, and after the sessions during the day we sang for the outreach service each night.
during the morning sessions we broke into small groups to work on Bible storytelling
At the evening services there was some good preaching!
We also sang at a few other churches while we were down there, where we met new people and saw familiar faces and friends…some of those we haven’t seen in a while!
so good to be with the family at Blue Baptist again…people we have served with in South Dakota
One of the neat things about traveling the continent is there are believers to fellowship with just about anywhere you go. Oklahoma definitely has people who love Jesus!
Since we were so close to Branson, we hopped over there for a night and enjoyed a rousing family game of mini golf, Sight & Sound Theatre’s production of the Christmas story, and time with friends.
to experience an amazing, live Biblical drama, visit Sight & Sound Theatre!
Pictures from our latest trip coming next!
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11 NKJV
God opened the door for us to travel to British Columbia and sing for a Native Evangelical Fellowship of Canada conference there. We were involved with something similar last fall in Ontario and so it was a privilege to join with NEFC again for ministry.
The trip out there was a beautiful drive, to say the least.
stopped traffic means good time to get out and stretch
The conference was a time to encourage believers through music and the Word of God.
Emerson Falls, from Oklahoma, brought the Bible teaching
We were so blessed by different people we met over the weekend. There are so many believers who are being faithful where God has placed them and getting to know people like that is encouraging. Also there were others we knew who came in for the conference, which was fun since we were so far from home!
After the weekend, we hit the road…in a van loaded for a month…no trailer.
And we had to grab a picture as we went through this one town…
More pictures to come as the road turned northward…destination Alaska!
An update from our mid summer! Some of the things we were involved in were a couple singing opportunities, helping with a local conference, three of us helping with a conference in Iowa, and counseling at camp. And, of course, we enjoyed watching fireworks. We don’t have pictures from everything but here are a few.
We always enjoy it when we can help with Bright Lights conferences. We traveled to Iowa for this one.
Sara shared a testimony
skits with a point…in which we might have been three of the four girls under those blankets, pretending to be horses
we always love the sweet fellowship
And girls camp at Storybook Lodge!
skits at mealtime
the speakers always presented the gospel so clearly
dress-up night, where we were given fascinators for our hair…
…and had an elegant tea party complete with a chocolate fountain
cabins got more points if the cabin inspector found a Bible verse sign
Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Psalm 95:6-7 NJKV
