Watermelons & Pamplets...

Here is a corn maze update with pics.! (I know.. finally!) ;)
Last week we passed out pamphlets about the corn maze at our county wide Rt. 66 garage sale! The pamphlet also has a $1 off coupon in it so hopefully a lot of people will come and use them!!!!
Here mom and the boys are folding them.
And last night at 8:00 we went out and planted watermelons in the you pick sweet corn, watermelon, pumpkin patch!

It was pretty fun though, out in the middle of a corn field at dusk planting watermelons. Not something you see everyday! ;)

Mom dug the hole.
Ben stuck in the plant.

I covered it with dirt.


And James watered. ;D

Oh! And for those of you who so sacrificially gave of your time and energy to help plant those 3,000 pumpkin seeds the other day... they are coming up and looking great! Thanks for your help!

Urgent Prayer Request!!!!

Hey all! Today we are cutting the corn maze!!!!!! Caleb is helping with 5-Day Clubs with Uncle Jerry down south for the month and he was able to fly here just for today in order to cut the maze so it is VERY important that they get it all cut today. So the reason we need you all to pray, is one... that the cutting will go smoothly and two.... we have a 30% chance of thunderstorms at 1:00 this afternoon and they are still working! So if you all could send up a prayer that the Lord would hold off the rain til they are done that would be a huge blessing!
I have a lot of pics. on the things we have done on the maze but we are having technical difficulties with the computer that has all the pics. on it. So I will post them as soon as I can!
Hope you all have a blessed weekend! Thank you for your prayers!

S.M.I.T.E Camp!

Sorry all for not posting last week! Caleb, Ben, & I were at S.M.I.T.E camp down in balmy Louisiana all last week! We had a GREAT time! S.M.I.T.E camp, for those of you who don't know, is a camp were "fun goes to die" as the director, Uncle Jerry, says. :) It's a place were they train you to lead 5 Day Bible Clubs and to lead kids to the Lord! A 5 Day Bible Club is like a 1 hour VBS in someones backyard or at a town park. We do songs, a memory verse, and Bible lesson and a missionary story. Plus a game or two here or there.
S.M.I.T.E stands for Summer Missionary Institute for Training and Evangelism. It has four levels that you pass by taking tests at the end of the week. The 1st level teaches how to use the wordless book to lead someone to the Lord. Level 2 is how to tell the Missionary story, level 3 on how to tell the Bible lesson and to write your own outlines, and level 4 is on teaching in general. After you pass level 4 you "graduate" from SMITE, which I (Jordan) did this year! Caleb passed level 3 and Ben passed level 2.
So the schedule (just so you can see what it's like) is... you get up at 6:00, eat breakfast, then you go to your classes til lunch. After lunch you have a study hour to get ready for your club then everyone goes out to there assigned club and practices what they have been learning. After that everyone gets back, gets ready for evening services and goes to dinner. After dinner the service starts at about 6:30, with a 1/2 hour sing time, and doesn't get out til the Holy Spirit lets us! :) Which this week was about 11:30 each night! It is so cool because there is such a sense of revival in that place that is just awesome!
This year there were over 1,000 kids enrolled in the clubs and over 400 saved!!!! This is a camp to definitely look in to! Hope I didn't bore you all! Now to the pics...
On the way down we stopped at Lamberts!!!!
We had a little wait so we bumped a volleyball on the grass to get all our energy out from driving.

On Sun. after church we went to the Bass Pro Shop down there!!! COOL place!!!!

(Love this truck!)
Here's Britt and Jenny in one of the services.

Here's Ashley! She's so cute!

And Natalea, she's so fun! And there's our guys in the background.

This was one of the preachers.

And some of you may know this one! "I love my pastor!!!" :D

This is a movie of one of the songs we sing down there. The song time is just incredible!!!!!

Please keep us in your prayer this summer as we do Bible clubs around our area! For safety and the Holy Spirit to convict and change lives!
