The kids are napping now, but they are excited that we will be viewing the fireworks near Mentor High School. One of the newest ideas for outreach is to pass out free bottles of water and gospel tracts. It’s hot enough that most everyone will want water. But will they be interested in the water of life as well? We will be praying they will be interested. Calvary Bible Church in Columbus has done this for the last few years during the Whetstone fireworks. As their parking lot is used by many who attend, it seemed like a natural outreach for them. Now it’s our turn to try. But what do you think? Do you like the idea?
Our children and the neighbor girls enjoyed the backyard this morning as you can tell from the picture. Trent is turning into a monkey. I wasn’t sure whether to run out to catch him or let him figure it out himself. He eventually made it down without any trouble. Later, Emilea and Ilyssa joined us for a late lunch. For the special occasion we had maccaroni and cheese, cantalope, brownies, and Diet Mountain Dew! What a way to celebrate the holiday.
