Autumn Festival Parade

I hope you get a chance to look at Cindy's blog called "Life in a small town". The URL is She does alot of fun stuff about our new home town. But I thought I might chime in here too! Here are some pictures of the Autumn Festival in Oregon, Illinois. I'm not even going to comment on them - I'm tempted to - but they speak for themselves!

Yep! That's life in a small town! Your comments are encouraged!

A trip to Grace College and Seminary!

October 6-9th I represented AMF at the Grace College and Seminary missions conference with AMF partner Brad Lambright. It was a great time connecting with students and being in "college" again! Here are some photos!

Our displays were set up in the Orthopaedic Capital Center

a beautiful new sports center on campus.

My display. Exciting isn't it?!?

The candy bowl was quite popular!

The college is located in Winona Lake, Indiana.

It was a very popular Bible conference location for many years.

This is Winona Lake today!

This is how it looked years ago!

They had an awesome "Taste of the World" event.

I got too full to eat at all the tables!

A couple of beautiful Israeli Girls!

The students worked really hard to provide information
about each country and food as close to authentic as possible!

This is one of the growth groups I had the opportunity
to speak too! The students were awesome!

College has changed somewhat since I was there.
For instance there were no dinosaurs

and this room was amazing! It even had a washer and dryer!

And of course some things never change.
This is the room I stayed in in the boy's dorm!

I really enjoyed my visit at Grace college and we had some awesome discussions with students about missions and ministry in the US!

A big thank you goes out to all those who worked so hard to put this conference on and a big thanks to Samuel, Andrew and Kaleb who shared their room with me!!! It was a very comfortable couch!

Check out Wordle!

Our friend Karl Bastian pointed out this website from his friend Henry Zonio's blog. It takes words and makes interesting graphics of them. You can play at I am behind on blogging and will try to catch up! This "wordle" I made using AMF's motto and ministry points.!
