It’s about time! Our summer has been fairly full, so here’s a quick review of the events we have pictures for.
Our home church from Illinois came and we partnered for VBS on the Red Lake Reservation.
VBS was in the afternoon…
…then we headed to a church in Bemidji to help with their evening VBS
it was a good week…and by the end we were ready for dairy queen
Next was Bible camp for Redby/Red Lake kids! A church from NY came to run it…here we are with some of the counselors after camp.
The end of July was the United in Christ conference in Bemidji, bringing together hundreds of Christians from all over North America, including people from many different Native American tribes/First Nations. It was a beautiful thing to see so many believers coming together for the glory of Christ.
our family kept busy behind the scenes
people from all over shared music in the evenings, including the Shugaks from Alaska
even locals got to join in the music
Paul Straubel and Huron Claus, the men who had a vision for this conference
so many people praying for Native North America
August brought the Lake Itasca Family Music Festival. It was another great year of music and fellowship. Mark your calendars for next year!
And we spent time with friends who stayed with us.
The week after that was the county fair, where we have a gospel booth. Last year we started using a Bible quiz as a way to get talking with people, and it went so well we did it again this year. We also sang on the outdoor stage…a great place to share the gospel.So that pretty much brings us up to date. Thank you to everyone who prayed for the different ministry opportunities we had.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Psalm 90:12
