HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND EXPERIENCING THE MANY WONDERS OF GOD

Big Event #1

 Thursday evening was THE ROCK‘s 2nd Annual Carnival. Each Rock Staffer had a game and the kids each had cards that needed to be stamped for participation! The sky looked horrible and we feared for rain all evening. But something amazing happened, God had the storm parting around us just for the period of time the carnival took place. We had people watching it by radar and it was just passing around us. God is awesome and truly cares about these children. Another staffer talked about how God provided for each little part of her game. For us it was how the wind (though gusty at times) didn’t seem to blow our candles out. God truly blessed our efforts to minister to these kids in a fun way. The numbers weren’t as impressive as last year but the ugly sky probably kept alot away! So here are some pictures of the eventful night!

Smiles

This past week Charity has taken off with smiling! She has finally started to respond to her brothers! It is awesome to see them trying to get her smiles and then to see her give ’em!

And I did make her a little dress! I did this before she was born! This is her first time wearing it!

Charity July 046a

And the boys are not without adventure! Remember I mentioned getting a new playset in the last post, well with that playset came a seesaw! They finally figured out how to work together and share and get it going so they can both enjoy it! Now they do get a bit silly and launch each other off (considering Titus weighs 10 lbs more than Jairus).  But it is neat to watch! Look at their very pleased faces!
