Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.

Days 3 and 4 are complete:)

Well days 3 and 4 of Avalanche Ranch went very well. We had 28 on Wednesday and 29 yesterday. The kids are having tons of fun. We pray now that they will realize church is fun and will plug into Sunday School.

Yesterday we shared the gospel and encouraged the kids to come talk to either Butch or myself afterwards if they wanted to know how they could be a part of God's family and have Jesus as their forever friend:) 2 girls came to me after we were done and prayed to receive Jesus as their Savior! Wahoo!!!!!

Today is our last day and we will have a closing program tonight so the kids can bring their praents, families and friends. We once again issued the challenge of raising money, this time time to buy goats and chickens for needy families in countries like Uganda, through World Vision. The kids have done awesome in bringing in their loose change, hoping for the chance to throw a cream pie at Pastor Butch. I'll be sure and post pictures when we are done:)

Well off to get ready for Day 5....

That's what it is all about!
Praise God!
Just what I needed this morning too... the details of planning a family reunion for next week and VBS the week after were starting to get to me. It is easy to loose sight of the why behind what we are doing. God is good!
