Our 2nd Fall Festival

What do you do with a group of children who are creative, highly energetic, have giving hearts full of God’s love, and are missing some of their home traditions?

You give them lots of newspaper, several cans of spray paint, a ton of balloons, and full creative license.

Then you get yourself a fall festival.

and the opportunity to teach Kenyan children how to bob for apples.

Then when you see the cast on the move, you know that it must be time for the Bible house tour. Paul’s life and travels were the theme of the story.

We had the stoning of Stephen.

the crash special effects team was lying in wait with water and sound effects.

Thank you to our neighbors who let us love on them in such a fun way. Thank you to those who helped with all the details. Thank you to my children and their friends who inspire me everyday.

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night shall not cease.   – Genesis 8:22
