Post Summer Ministry Update

This summer was busy, as usually, with speaking engagements and camping ministries. As a family, we spent much of the summer at Big Sky Bible Camp. Todd spoke for two of the traditional weeks of camp, but the highlight of the summer was day camp. Together, Todd and Brenda directed the two weeks of day camp for kindergarten through second graders. Brenda did great with the organizational aspects of preparation and execution- coming up with lesson plans, crafts, schedules- while also helping Todd with the hands-on aspects of teaching and games. The first week focused on the life of Joseph making puppets with coats-of-many-colors. Each camper took home a shield  the second week as they focused on the Armor of God. It was amazing to see the work of God in the children's lives as we had much feedback from parents and coworkers about the children's excitement from the lessons they were learning. It was also wonderful to be a part of children coming to the saving knowledge of God's grace. Below are some links to video slide shows from our time at Big Sky Bible Camp this summer.

With our children heading to school at the end of August, our ministry has shifted gears. While Brenda spends her time at children's appointments and helping with homework, Todd has continued to spend time at camp helping with retreats. Recently, all the students from Kalispell Middle School [where Levi attends] were just one of the groups using Big Sky Bible Camp's Ropes Course. Todd has also had speaking engagements at First Baptist Church in Bigfork and Stillwater Christian School.

We have continued to teach Children's Church at Central Bible Church as we prepare for the upcoming season of Bible Clubs. Please keep us in your prayers as we make our way back into the public schools teaching the knowledge of Christ's love and forgiveness.
