Last Sunday we had our annual Sunday School Picnic at the lake. I always love a lakeside service; enjoying the beautiful outdoors, everyone clustered together to hear the word, the gentle breeze carrying the music of worship. We were even able to have a baptism service this year with 4 getting baptized. It was a fun day with lots of games, food, and sunshine! Here is a picture of Bryce getting ready to be baptized and of us getting ready for our service.

I (Jenn) went to Jr. Teen camp in MN this last week as a counselor. I brought two girls from our church with me and had 6 others from another town. They were the best campers a counselor could ever hope for--especially after hearing some stories from other counselors! I had such a blast, and can't wait for next year (right Alexis?) Here are pictures of me with all my campers (Alexis, Boe, Amy, Paige, Chelsea, Ally, Melissa, Tina, me) and with me and the girls I brought down (Alexis and Boe). Now I just need to catch up on all that lost sleep....

2 full weeks of camps and we LOVE it!! First we went to Lake Geneva (MN Family Camp), but (gasp) Jenn Forgot the camera! No pictures to share from all the fun we had there--oops. This past week we were at FaHoCha Camp in ND. From our understanding it was the largest camp ever with 80 campers. The kids spent much of their time catching frogs (and a couple of snakes, too), plus swimming, playing in the game room, and on the playground. Many kids gave their hearts to Jesus--and that's the best part of camp! The first pic is of the kids helping with dishes (L to R: Jacen, Abbi, Bryce, Steven, and Darica--Jacen and Darica are the camp Manager's kids. Steven stays with our friends, the Hooge's). The second pic is of all the campers (and us, too). The bottom pic is of the sunset right before our campfire night--it was just gorgeous!
