Lesson #18

As we were preparing this week’s lesson, I was reading some of the notes in my study Bible. One of them said, “Let the Holy Spirit turn your eyes away from your own performance and toward Jesus.” Phew.

I think we’ve mentioned this before, but our girls have outstanding imaginations. They’re always pretending to be someone else or playing robust games with their toys.

Friday Favorites

This week was mostly characterized by playing in the dirt (be it Hudson playing with his dump truck in the dust or Allen helping with projects out in the field), pre-school activities, and preparing for Sunday’s service (we’re sharing at Bonanza Community Church, Bonanza, OR!).


Below are a few of our favorites from the week.

Last Friday, we spent the morning at a playground in Bonanza and enjoyed ice cream and popsicles from the General Store afterwards. Bonanza is a small town (about 1/3 the size of Palmer, for those in Alaska) and it was fun to enjoy the sunshine at the park and with some snacks!
And we enjoyed some sleep, some cooler weather, and coffee. Anyone surprised?
If you are in Eastern Oregon on Sunday, come join us at Bonanza Community Church at 10:10. We’ll be sharing our story and calling, work God is doing in Togo, and encouraging others to take part in God’s great commission.
Our fall partner get together is tomorrow at 9am Alaska time (12pm Central time). We’d love to have you join us! Need the link? Let us know and we’ll send it to you.

Have a great weekend!
