Other recent happenings.............

The exciting news around here,
is the NEW BUS!!

Recently, we were able to purchase a 22
coaster bus from a community close by.
Yes, she's rough, the seats are torn,
it has random slogans on the outside
that have to be removed,
but it runs and it seats
mobs of kids, so, YAY!

Dave has wanted one for years
and God has supplied
just in time. This Friday we had 47 kids
at youth group, a great blessing!
The bus was overloaded and the 11 seater full
and another car full plus extras.


This week, we split the youth group
into 2 groups, with James and Abbi
taking the younger ones, and Dave and I
the older ones, along with our Pastor
and his wife helping all round.

God has really blessed the youth ministry
here in Katherine and these little lives
are in need of a Saviour.

Please pray for these kids, that we can
see them come to a saving knowledge of
the Lord Jesus Christ.

In other news.............

Today, we had a girls get together
here at our house for the girls
aged 10 and over.
We had 22 girls and a heap of
fun and giggles.

We played pool, ping pong,
painted our nails, coloured our hair,
made cards, ate, laughed, burped
and had a great time!

So, now I am sitting here with
reddish, pinkish hair,
hot orange toe nails and
drinking my second coffee
to keep awake. LOL.

We have started some new
Sunday School classes here at
Savannah Way Baptist Church
and hope to see some of these kids
coming along regularly.

21 TODAY!!

That's right. Dave and I are 21 today!

Married, that is.

Yep, 21 years ago today
we were walking back down that
rose petal strewn aisle, hand in hand,
about to embark on a life of adventure,
together, not a care in the world,
not knowing what the Lord had in store
for us, but excited at the prospect
and secure in the knowledge that He would
guide us and lead us every step of the way.

And wow! what a great 21 years it has been.
We're ready for 21 more.

I'm sorry ladies, but 21 years ago,
every woman in the world had to
settle for 2nd best, because

The Lord has blessed us beyond measure,
and brought us through testings, trials,
adventure, excitement, sadness,
sickness and so much more.
But through it all, He has been there
for us, and has been that lighthouse
on the sea shore, directing our path
and lighting our way.

The Bible has so much to say about
marriage God's way. 
But, this is some of the best advice:

Proverbs 3:5,6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him,
and he shall direct thy paths.

And no, Dad, good try,
but you were too late!
Not a chance!

I love you, Dave
