This was a wonderful weekend. Katie and I took the African Kids Choir for a weekend retreat at Daypring Ministries(my home of 20 years). We joined many other international and Canadian friends on Saturday for the International Family Fun day that my parents and others plan quite often now at Dayspring. It was such a joy to go swimming, eat together, go canoeing, catch frogs and play soccer. The kids have been working hard and it was fun to relax a bit and enjoy God's nature!
We finished up Saturday with a giant pillow fight which lasted a good 20 minutes and then hit the hay!
Sunday, we had an amazing pancake breakfast cooked by my Grampa Jamer and uncle Jerry. We had some time to read the bible and we had a wonderful time worshipping together with my grandparents, parents and all the friends that came to help us out (thanks guy ;). It is always so awesome to worship God together with other cultures! I think that God is really pleased when we all come together to praise his name! We have been so blessed to be a part of these kids lives and we look forward to watching them grow and become young men and women of God!

Katie and I received a free car wash from Marco the car salesman and we decided to go on a little adventure! It was a wild ride! Once we had punched our codes in, the light flashed green and a friendly digital sign invited us in. Suddenly, out of nowhere, we were attacked on all sides. It was an ambush! Katie went into a panic as jets pounded on the windows and suds flew everywhere!
I was not quite sure what to with myself. I just buried my head into my hands and waited until the worst of it was over.
Soon all became quiet and as we inched our way forward, we noticed what looked to be a microphone that you could order burgers from.....
I rolled down my window and just as I was poking my head out when........
a mighty blast of hot air hurled me back into my seat!! It was certainly a wash to remember!

Our good friend Jon Phillps came to our house this weekend. He and his son Andrew came over for supper! Jon went to school with my parents and I lived with Jon in Fredericton when I went to school there. Jon is a great friend and I really enjoyed staying at his place!
It was great, Katie made corn on the cob and sloppy Joes! Then for desert we had a special fruit pizza (one of my personal favorites : ). After supper, we have a great time talking, bouncing on the excersice ball and playing dominoes!
Andrew was pretty much a dominoes expert. He was trying to build a tower that was taller than himself, but ran out of time.......
God Bless Jon, come on over any time!
