Another week has gone by & soon another one will begin. This week was busy with VBS at church. It was a lot of fun but made me tired. The next two weeks I will not be able to post pictures as I will be gone on a mission trip. I will be going to Teen Missions International in Merritt Island, Florida to lead a team of 22 7-9yrs old as they learn to be a missionary. This age group are called Peanuts. My team is called the cookie command team. We will be baking cookies, bagging them & putting Bible verses in with the cookies. Then my kids will go an Air Force Base, present the gospel in songs, drama, & puppets to personnel serving there. They will pass out the cookies, visit with the people & will tell them about the plan of salvation using wordless books and/or bracelets. When I return, I will have plenty of pictures to share. Now for this week....

At the airport with my son Wood. He is talking to his brother one last time until 30 July & saying goodbye. He went to Florida to Teen Mission International to help lead a team of 21 teenagers to Russia on a mission trip. He is in Florida from 6-25 June, then off to Russia. He comes home on 30 July.

Our theme was Big Apple Adventure - New York City. My room was Grand Central Terminal and I taught about missions. This is a turn style my husband made for my room.
Each day the kids were given tokens to drop in the bucket so they could get into Missions. 3rd grade class coming in.

Today I made my dish bag for my mission trip & a matching pillow case for my travel pillow. In the past I have used my son's dish bag, but he had to take that one to Russia with him. Between my two boys mission trips, that dish bag has been to Zambia, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Mozambique - Africa; Switzerland, England, Ireland, Wales, Samoa & Australia. Now it is head to Russia, Mongolia & China. Lucky bag.
Well, that is all I have for this week. I will talk to you in two weeks, will miss seeing the weekly post but I'm really getting excited about my mission trip. This is my 3rd year leading peanut teams & my largest team. My first team had 7 kids, my second had 11. This year I have 22!!! Have a great two weeks. I know I will.
