I am updating from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan!
I am helping out with Vacation Bible School at the church my dad pastors in Ishpeming, Michigan this week. We were hoping for about 40 kids each morning, but we've been blessed with 43 kids on Monday and 57 today!! What a great turnout! We also have special guests David and Kristi Flinck with us as our missionaries of the week. I actually went to Northland with David and Kristi (Thompson) for a couple of years (they were 2 years ahead of me), so it's been good to catch up with them. I've enjoyed playing with their kids Jordan (4), Benji (3), and Kaylee (11 months).
It's been a busy week so far as we're at church from about 9:00 a.m. until about 1:00 p.m. (VBS is over at noon) and I've been working on powerpoint presentations and crafts home with me to work on for the next day.
But we had fun going to Lake Michigamme yesterday afternoon for a boat ride and supper. It actually warmed up enough when the sun came out to take our jackets off, too!
And today my sister Sarah and I went to Presque Isle in Marquette and took a nice walk around it--by Lake Superior. And as long as you kept moving the mosquitoes weren't too bad!
Just thought I'd share a few photos of the week so far.
