Summer Fun

Nothing beats summer!! Playing with the hose and getting soaking wet, playing at the park, eating popsicles..... I could go on and on! I love watching Mj enjoy summer and seeing everything through his eyes! Everything is always new and exciting to him.

He loves getting the hose out and "accidentally" spraying me!=) He loves his fort-slide! He always hides in the fort when Mark gets home and we can never find him!=) Mj also loves blowing dandelion seeds everywhere and finding lady bugs (because they are the only nice bugs!)

VBS Week

Well our week of VBS is over! We had over 100 kids every night! The Lord worked and children were saved! It was a tiring week, but well worth it! Last night we stayed and cleaned up afterward and enjoyed eating pizza and talking and just relaxing for a bit. Now Mark and I are looking forward to the Wilds in a week with our teens!!Mj enjoyed VBS this year!
Mj and Paton after VBS!

We started our VBS last night with an all time high of 103 kids (our church is only about 125-150 people on Sunday morning!!!)! Praise God! I'm not sure how many made decisions, but I do know that I led one 7 year old girl to Christ! I'm looking forward to what God will do this week! It's already started off great, but Satan is on the warpath! Even yesterday I got to church and had a splitting headache and then Mj decided to be bad. I know it was Satan trying to discourage me and get my mind off my lesson and those children. But God is STRONGER!!!!! I'll update as I can this week! Please pray that many children will come to the saving knowledge of Christ!

The World's Largest Hershey Kiss!!!

We took Mj to Chocolate World to see the World's largest Hershey kiss. Yummmmmy!! It smelled so good, but I could only imagine the belly ache you'd have after eating that! Mj decided he wanted to climb it and eat it from the top!=) He said he could eat the whole thing and not get a belly ache! I actually believe him!=)

Knoebles fun!

On Tuesday night we went to Knoebles to celebrate Lydia's birthday. Mj was braver this year and tried some new rides! Nanny and Papa took Mj on the kiddie rides while us big kids rode the rollercoasters and other crazy rides!=) We even got Mj to ride the flume with us!=) We couldn't believe he didn't cry, but he didnt' want to go on it again! We had a great time and we're hoping we can go again before the summer's over!

Fourth of July Festivities

I'm so proud to be an American!!! We live in such a great country!! We celebrated our country's birthday by working around the house, having burgers with the Fortney fam and then seeing fireworks in the drizzle and rain in Hershey. Mj enjoyed the fireworks. His favorite ones were the green ones.

Reaching Children for Christ

Please pray for me as I study this week to start my 5-day clubs the week of July 9 & 16! I'm excited to teach children that Jesus is their friend and Savior!! It will be a good 2 weeks, but exhausting! Also, pray for safety. I'll be driving many miles those 2 weeks through Lancaster county.
Then the week of July 23 I will be teaching the missionary story at our VBS. VBS is always a great week at our church and I'm looking forward to seeing what the Lord will do.
