The Ark Encounter… Enormous… Amazing!

We were headed north and one of our bookings was near The Ark Encounter.  We pulled in just to see the cost and such and realized that we couldn’t afford it.  🙁  We were talking to one of the managers outside and he  said to the ticket window… “give them my discount!”  It was 50% …

We had a few off days between the last presentation and our Easter presentation… so, we just SAT STILL (well as much as is possible for 8 people in a 31ft. RV… but, we tried to take it easy)…. for a couple days at a good friends RV park in Wears Valley and also explored some of Pigeon Forge as well.

Boat race down the creek behind the RV.. . 🙂

Our old-fashioned girl…

Dollywood… Mr. Hershend graciously gives us season passes to Silver Dollar City… and that gives us access to here as well. 🙂  Glorye is always in her stroller, so misses the pictures. 🙂

Such a fun group, full of life, energy and very gifted.

Ha… ha… couple of goof balls. 🙂

Family time by the creek at Riverbend Campground in Pigeon Forge.

Children’s Bible Ministry ~ Townsend, TN

We were able to present for the volunteers that came to help get the camp ready for summer.  We met the directors last year at a jam session nearby and that sparked one of our bookings in FL… and for us to meet the folks at Camp Gilead.  It was a blessing to be there …

An Amazing Servant… used by God to bring souls to the Kingdom.

We don’t have a way to watch TV (not that we would even if we did)… but, we knew that the Billy Graham Celebration of Life service would be worth watching.  So, we sat in our little RV in Naples, FL and watched the entire 2 hour coverage on our little cell phone.  Wow!  We …

Window shade blessings…

So, the string on our large day/night shade in the RV decided to bust (I think it may have had a little help from little hands).  We just lived with it for a while, but eventually we got the kit to fix it.  The directions said it was a 3-4 hour project and it looked …
