This has probably been one of the busiest falls that we have ever experienced! Youth Ministry Team, Kid's church, deputation, Leadership Meetings and Training Conferences have kept me on the run!! I have hardly been in Missoula at all these last two months! We are glad to have a few normal weeks and thanksgiving to rest a little (and watch some football!) and maybe catch up on our blog with some pictures. If you are on our mailing list you should receive our prayer letter in the next couple of weeks. If you are not on the list email me your snail mail address to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we would love to add you! We are especially praying that all of our support will come in before the end of December. Whatever comes in January and beyond will count for next year! Would you pray with us about this? Check out the post following this for a special announcement!
P.S. When did I get old enough to be a father-in-law?

I'm a bit embarassed. They've been engaged for almost 2 months and I have not posted about it yet. Here goes... Our son Nick has proposed and we will soon be the proud parents of a daughter-in-law! Nick's fiance is Alena Purkerson. They met at Big Sky Bible Camp but did not become a couple until last summer. We are very excited for them and appreciate your prayers for them as they prepare for the wedding, maintain work schedules and Nick completes school. They plan to marry on July 7, 2007. Nick should be able to remember their anniversary - 7/7/07!

Folks, I've blogged a bunch today so you may need to open the archive for the entire month of October in order to see all the photos. Just scroll down the right hand side and you'll see it. Click October 2006. Here are some photos from last weekend. It was our eighth annual Children's Ministry Conference here in Missoula. New Hope Christian Fellowship was our host church and we had a great time with the 27 folks that came. Not a bad turn out but each year we hope for more. Enjoy the photos and don't forget to click on the October archive for more!! A big thank you goes out to Steve Brackman for hosting us at his church! And another thank you to the Puckett family who came and presented a great Gospel magic show Friday evening along with the Triple P Puppet Team!
Kid's corner has been very active this month. Although the numbers have been down the kids have had a great time learning about Daniel and his friends. They are learning what it means to put your hope in God! Most of the work this month was done by Jason Pace and Curtis Davey because I have been on the road a lot!! Thanks guys, you have done a great job!!
October has been like a daytona race! It has been so busy we haven't had much of a chance to blog! So here we go with October highlights! This is the youth ministry team at Village Health Care and Hillside Manor participating in Balloons Around the World! We have so much fun with the residents and they love to see our gang come and visit with them!
