A couple of weeks back,
we had our annual
Holiday Bible Club
here at Savannah Way Baptist Church.

It was a lot of hard work,
but it was well worth the effort.
Pup and Lydia Cotton came
and gave us a hand for the week
and we all had a great time.

This year, for the first time,
we had a puppet show every day
for the lesson. This went down very
well with the kids and James' puppet
"Tommy", quickly became the favourite.

Dave built the puppet theatre,
with Chloe's help and it worked
out really well.

Chloe was able to be one of the puppeteers
as well as myself, our Pastor's wife, Jessica
and James, with Dave being the narrator
and Abbi playing Tommy for the singing,
as James needed to play the 'real' guitar,
as opposed to the 'pretend' one that Tommy had.

We had a good crowd of kids each day
and good behaviour all round, which was
a great blessing.

There is a possibility of using the puppets
for a Christmas market here in Katherine
in November, so please be in prayer that
we can use this ministry to share the gospel.

On the last day we held a free BBQ
and invited parents to attend. It
was great to see some family members
come and enjoy the day with us.

As always, I took hundreds of photos,
with the help of Maddie,
so I have made a slideshow so you
can see the faces of these precious kids
that God has blessed us with here in Katherine.

So, if you want to see videos of the puppet
shows, singing, more adorable kids,
games etc, please take the time to watch
the video below. I have had to
cut it in half and upload
it in 2 bits, so, sorry for the
disjointedness:) Also, it will probably
not be clear if watched full screen.

Grab a cup of tea,
sit back and enjoy the slideshow
and don't forget to pray
for the work here in Katherine.

Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, Suffer little children,
and forbid them not, to come unto me:
for of such is the kingdom of heaven.


On the weekend, Maddie managed
to break her ankle!

She's okay, but now going
to have to lug around a heavy,
hot, cast for a few weeks.

Of course, when given the choice,
she chose the camo coloured cast!
