Warm glowy sunshine + cute sisters = gorgeousness.
The 3rd weekend in September our family went to a cabin in Bellville for our vacation. It was a great time just chillin and hanging out with family. There was lots of good food, many games played, and lots of good conversation.
Knockout was a very popular game that weekend..:)
L to R: Kaden, Hudson, Zachary, and Savannah.
Katie was a new addition..:) Why was she there? Oh to visit me of course..who else?
Ok, ok, she was there because of Caleb..;) It was alot of fun having her around! Battleship was played alot! Raphael had a remote controlled helicopter that he flew around alot. And Zachary was so intrigued by it..he would follow it all around the room trying to get to it. It was very amusing to watch at times.
When it did finally hold still long enough for him to touch it, he didn’t know what to do with it!
The whole Stoltzfoos tribe…Thus ended the Stoltzfoos family vacation 2013.
I was introduced to this place last summer. Its a small development in Atglen. And the kids there have completely captured my heart. I never tire of going in there and playing with them. They look at me with their dear little faces and big eyes and i just melt..:)
The other week we went there and had a little bible school for them…its not super organized or anything. We just go in there and play games, have a short little bible story, sing, and just love the children.
Piggy back rides are also a very important part of it..;)
Can you feel the hearts of the children? Aching for home, for something of their very own. Reaching hands, with nothing to hold on to, but hope for a better day.
Crying,”Jesus help me to feel the love again in my own land. But if unknown roads lead away from home, give me loving arms away from harm.”Can you hear the voice of the children? Softly pleading, for silence in their shattered world? Angry guns, preach a gospel full of hate, blood of the innocent on their hands.Crying, “Jesus help me to feel the sun again upon my face. For when darkness clears i know your near, bringing peace again.”Can you HEAR the PRAYER of the CHILDREN?
August 5-9 was our Girls Club Camp. It was my second year being counselor and this year i was in the oldest cabin. It looked kind of big at the beginning the week. But even though it was hard, many amazing things happened and it was alot of fun!
Us counselors on Sunday afternoon at orientation. On the bus headed to camp! Arrival at camp..Me and my co-counselor Deanne.. I didn’t know her before, but i couldn’t have asked for a better co for the oldest cabin! It was alot of fun being a counselor with her. Our group at banquet.. Our cabin color was red, so we called ourselves the.. Red Robins!! We had a very lively bunch of girls and we had alot of fun together. One of our favorite times of the day usually was the cabin time in the evening after showers.. the questions they would ask! It really kept me and Deanne on our toes! The theme song for the week was Go Light Your World. And on Thursday night at the banquet, each cabin sent of a chinese lantern.
Me and my little sisters Mihaela and Diana..minus Jess on the left. She kinda photobombed that one.
My dear glenbrook girls.
The whole group!We had an amazing team supporting us counselors! Left to Right.. Rachel (camp director), Ada (camp pastor), and Marilyn (director’s assistant). And not pictured, Jon and Lill Stoltzfus were there as camp director couple as well. They all did an amazing job supporting us!
