No Time Like the Present to Learn

After many talks of who's responsibility it was to train their pet, someone gets the job done!  The book in his hand is a puppy training manual.  I happened to glance out the window and see this!  All you parents out there that have slow readers, be encouraged.  They will learn even if it's late and all will be well. 

These next photos are from the 5-day club we're holding here at the cabin this week.  It is put on by C.E.F.  They train teenagers to teach a Bible lesson, missionary story, memory verse, lead songs, and review games to neighborhood children.  The first few days we had only our children and then each day more have come.  C.E.F. is in every state and around the world so find your local chapter on the web and get involved.  It's a great way to minister to children that need Jesus Christ or already know him but want to grow.  Click on   for more information.

 We met in the living room/library/computer/and play room all wrapped up into one!  When we first moved in, before the convenience of running water, we could add kitchen, dining, master bedroom and nursery to the above list. 
 Here are the young ladies leading in a review game.

These are the side steps onto the deck and wild raspberry patch to the right.  Notice all the 5-day club children perched happily upon them?  The clothesline stayed up today and the clouds dropped nary a drop!  I prayed God would hold the rain.  He didn't have to listen to me by the way, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.  Matter of fact, I ask him for things all day long.  Mostly things like wisdom, patience, and strength to hold my tongue.  Since I've dwelt in Alaska for almost a year now, I find myself thanking him more for things than asking.  Funny how hardships make one more appreciative.  You'd think it'd be the opposite.
