Thank You!

  I know that I mentioned something about this in an earlier post, but this thought deserves a post of its own.  I want to say a HUGE "Thank You" from Jared and I for the graciousness that was displayed to us on our visit to Oregon.  We would like thank everyone that made our stay enjoyable and pleasant.  It was great seeing everyone again, and hope to do the same next year.  You are all a great family (and I think we might have a couple of friends too)!  Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.

  Amidst the flood and business of this life, our family decided that none was a better time than the present to get away for awhile.  We took off on a voyage, which would take us across the bread basket of America, through Abilene, Kansas and to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  All of our events cannot be expressed because we would not like any intruders invading our privacy (last statement is suppose to be a joke, please laugh).  We will have the pleasure of taking in two, not to be mentioned which particular nights, nights of Oklahoma Camp Meeting.  On this voyage we are having to endure sweltering heat in order to have a little bit of fun.  Air conditioning was a great thing.  On a totally random subject, we have already had the pleasure of meeting a rather famous person.  He is the man that wrote "I Can't Even Walk Without You Holding My Hand".  Joel Longshore both played and sang the song for us.

  Things are going great in Minot, considering the circumstances.  Jared and I were having to conquer houses which had been conquerored by water.  We were having to carry out black sheetrock (mind you the sheetrock was not black from mold).  We were having to do this on days which consisted of so much heat and humidity that if you were outside for more than half -an-hour you would probably be soaked, from head-to-toe, in sweat.  Not everyday was like that but it was some very hard work.  Things are progressing in all faucets, we are not sure what will happen with our particular house yet, but it will all happen in God's timing.  Continue to keep us in your prayers.  Thank you for all the support you have given us!

Family Camp

  For all of you that have blogs you will know what I just went through.  I logged into my account and it has been such a long time since I last did that I didn't realize that they had changed the dashboard. 

  Family Camp was a great time.  Coming off of vacation I was worn out on the first day which is never a good thing when you look at the the fact you are doing good to get seven hours of sleep a night.  But what can you do?  I was able to work through it, and let me tell you, I had an awesome time.  Bro. Ballestero did an awesome job in the day services.  He was hilarious when he was teaching and he was hilarious when Bro. Hamm was preaching.  We really enjoyed him being here.  The great thing about it is he is going to be preaching at our services this afternoon so the fun will continue. 

  Bro. Hamm did a spectacular job.  He was not about flash and glamour.  For thirty minutes of the first night you might would even have thought that it was going to be a long week, but then it happened.  When he gets excited you know something is right and that you are suppose to get excited too.  He did an awesome job.  Friday night the Lord moved and we did not have any preaching.  It was a great time in the Lord.  Several people got the Holy Ghost, it was awesome. 

  I would like to say a big "Thank You" for everyone that put up with us while we were out in Oregon.  We had a great time and miss you guys already.  Thanks for everything.
