The 5K run was today and we had lots of fun (and some pain for us non-runners) running for our brothers and sisters in Myanmar. Thank you all for your prayers and support! God has worked wonders through this (MissionToMyanmar) mission field.
The actual distance we ran was 3.2 miles, which I think is 0.1 longer then a 5K, but who cares? Except our legs and lungs.
Here are a few pictures I took. (we ran at the Montana State Capitol and got to take a tour of it)
Our team! #helena5K #Miles4Myanmar
The capitol building.
Have a merry weekend and a blessed Sunday! And in all things, honor God.
If you read my last post, you know what I’m talking about when I say:
Please support my in a 5K I will be running in July, to raise money for http://www.MissionToMyanmar.com to use on meals, medicine, music and mercy to those in need. To give, click the link: http://miles4myanmar.com/sponsor/?pid=355 and give as much as you are able. May the lord bless you richly.
My family and I will be running this in Helena, Montana. (The race name is RockyMountainDew 5K) If you want to run the 5K with us or with a group in your area go to http://www.miles4myanmar.com and click Run/Walk.
Yesterday and today several of us children got to go camping a few miles away. Other then rain all night (which got us a little wet) we had an excellent time!
The two tents.
We set up the tents first then headed over to the dock to do a little fishing before it got too dark.
(And some drawing)
Then a fire and some tea. (We won’t mention how long it took to get the fire started)
We also lost our voices singing songs fast and loud.
After a pretty good night’s rest and a good breakfast, there was more fishing, reading, drawing, and jumping/swimming in the (very cold) river.
Josiah is the only one who caught a fish. (And it was little)
Watch out for the hook… and worm.
We had a blast and enjoyed God’s wonderful creation.
What is your favorite thing about spring?
On Wednesday (the 13th) I got to experience snowboarding for the first time ever. The best words I would use to describe it: thrilling, epic, and wonderful. I saw amazing scenery, and got to experience a lot of Joy… and falling. It was so worth the falls though. God has blessed us with an amazing creation to enjoy, and a feel so blessed to have been able to experience some of it.
We went to Sugar Mountain Resort in North Carolina and it was a beautiful day for snowboarding (or skiing).
Here I am, enjoying the day. Just kidding, this is a cool picture I found on the web.
Seriously though, here am I on the double black diamond… looking super epic with the sun right there and someone in a (probably) uncomfortable position taking a picture.
(Just kidding about the last picture too) I actually looked like this for over half the time. But it was so worth it.
(This layout is in need of a slight update. But over all, this is the mountain)
I had (let me repeat) and amazing time. I’m so thankful that I got to go.
Hasta la vista
*Disclaimer. I do not own these pictures. (Unfortunately I did not have a camera) I got them off of the web.
Around two weeks ago (Dec. 6) some people in our family were blessed with the opportunity to go to a Selah Concert with some friends. We had a great time and I took some pictures to share with you all.
O Sing to the Lord!
“O Come O Come Immanuel!”
(Priscilla and Jordan)
(MaryEmma and Mrs. K.)
The concert was at a Baptist Church a little over an hour away.
Joy To The World!
We had an excellent time! And I encourage you, if you haven’t heard of ‘Selah’ to go check them out. They have amazing voices and sing to the Lord.
(On a slightly unrelated note I also encourage you to get yourself a free copy of No Longer A Slumdog. Written by: K.P. Yohannan. It is a very good book. I’ll put in the link: https://www.gfa.org/book/ )
Hasta La Vista,
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
~Psalm 107. “Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,whom he has redeemed from trouble and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west,from the north and from the south. Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to a city to dwell in; hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way till they reached a city to dwell in. Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! For he satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things. Some sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, prisoners in affliction and in irons, for they had rebelled against the words of God, and spurned the counsel of the Most High. So he bowed their hearts down with hard labor;they fell down, with none to help. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble,and he delivered them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart. Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! For he shatters the doors of bronze and cuts in two the bars of iron. Some were fools through their sinful ways,and because of their iniquities suffered affliction; they loathed any kind of food,and they drew near to the gates of death. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction. Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of his deeds in songs of joy! Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the great waters; they saw the deeds of the LORD, his wondrous works in the deep. For he commanded and raised the stormy wind, which lifted up the waves of the sea. They mounted up to heaven; they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their evil plight; they reeled and staggered like drunken men and were at their wits’ end. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven. Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man! Let them extol him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders. He turns rivers into a desert, springs of water into thirsty ground, a fruitful land into a salty waste, because of the evil of its inhabitants. He turns a desert into pools of water, a parched land into springs of water. And there he lets the hungry dwell, and they establish a city to live in; they sow fields and plant vineyardsand get a fruitful yield. By his blessing they multiply greatly, and he does not let their livestock diminish. When they are diminished and brought lowthrough oppression, evil, and sorrow, he pours contempt on princes and makes them wander in trackless wastes; but he raises up the needy out of affliction and makes their families like flocks. The upright see it and are glad, and all wickedness shuts its mouth. Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things; let them consider the steadfast love of the LORD.”~
