Vacation Bible School in Ponemah Minnesota
This last week I was blessed to be able to join a group of believers up on the Red Lake Indian Reservation teaching VBS. Our theme was the Lord's Prayer and we studied all of God's amazing attrributes.

You never know how the seeds will grow that were planted. Pray that they would flourish and be fruitful in the lives of those precious children. Each one it seemed had a sad story to tell whether is was a divorce in the family or drunken parents or abuse. They really need the love of the Father to survive up there.

One example can be found in the picture above. "Hate" may be too strong of a word, but Dad really doesn't like puzzles. The logic of spending hours and hours placing a bunch of small pieces of cardboard together and then eventually putting them all back into a box, escapes him. However, my mother really enjoys puzzles--because of the wonderful times of fellowship and togetherness that puzzles often encourage. SO, Dad, sat down with Mom and put in some pieces just so that they could be together. Of course he did make a big deal of it and we were all aware of whenever he found a match, but regardless, he did it and that was pretty sweet. So maybe that wasn't his crowning moment of self-sacrifice, but that is just one small example. Anyway, I think that he definately is the greatest dad in the whole world!
Happy Father's Day Dad!
I love you,

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. (1 Cor. 13:1)
