Youth Challenge

Our kids are at Youth Challenge, near Cincinnati, this weekend. Since Maria is at God's Bible School in Cincinnati, she does not have far to go. But, it is too far from Saltillo, Mexico, for Kent to plan on attending. However, Bible Methodist Missions Director, John Parker, was able to raise the funds for Kent to make the trip. Thank you Bro. Parker and all who gave to make this trip a reality for Kent. We really appreciate it and it is an encouragement to all of us. God bless you!

We also thank Mom and Dad Sankey, who had to pick Kent up at the Indianapolis airport at the unearthly hour of 3 a.m.! UGH! Kent's flight was delayed in Laredo, because of bad weather in Houston. After a few hours of sleep, they took him to GBS to be with Maria.



Here's a picture of our kids. They are so, so happy to be together again!
Kent also has been able to see many on the Stetler side of the family. Almost the entire family has gathered this weekend, in the Cincinnati area. Most of them are staying at Steve's parents home, so I'm sure that is a "happening place." :-)

Neat that Kent can be there! Not so neat that I can't see him. He showed up after prayer meeting, and we'll be gone this weekend. So much for getting to see any Sankeys or Stetlers.

I was so surprised and happy to see Kent here at Youth Challenge! Grandma's house was ridiculously crowded last night. Kent and Kenny stayed in the dining room while Paul and Mark camped out in the living room. Last night, those four, plus Chad all sat on the air mattress and played games. LOL. So fun! Wish you were here. =)
