VBS 2016 will be here before we know it.
We are excited to see what God will do in hearts and lives this year.
 We thought it would be fun to look back at last summer with a glimpse of the 12 weeks of "Above and Beyod" 2015 VBS adventures God gave us!

What happens when time runs out?
Come learn about God Who made, orders, and gives us time.

TIME. Everyone gets the same amount each day. We measure it, use it, waste it, and lose it—one second at a time. But we often forget where it comes from and why we have it. Adults watch it flashing by and often wish to go back and use it more wisely. Children and youth see it dragging on with no end and little value, to be wished and played away. But no one has all the time in the world; time is limited and we can’t go back and relive it. Time itself had a beginning and it will have an end. It’s time people of all ages see time from a Biblical perspective as a valuable treasure to be used with purpose! “The Time Keeper” VBS 2016 will focus on our Creator, His creation, control, and account of time, and His right to tell us how to use this treasure.

Time is running out! Children have questions and need answers for how everything began, why bad things happen, where Satan came from, why Jesus came, what happens when people die, and how they can be sure of a home in Heaven. They also need the truth about dinosaurs, the age of the earth, and an understanding of a basic Biblical timeline. Let’s not let unanswered questions be the roadblocks that hinder young hearts from coming to the Lord while there is yet time. II Corinthians 6:2 says, “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

We look forward to serving with churches 
to encourage children and youth to acknowledge God as 
“The Time Keeper” 
and choose to give their hearts and time to Him!

 Questions and Answers

Last week we were invited to teach
 at a public school during an after-school Bible club.
The children had LOTS of great questions. We planned on teaching a half hour on the creation days and then go into a Bible lesson on Jonah, but a question and answer time became the rest of the lesson after the creation days were covered. 

The first through fifth graders wanted to know...   
   Where did God come from?
When were dinosaurs made? 
How could Adam and Eve survive with dinosaurs? 
Why do animals eat each other? 
Did a meteor kill the dinosaurs?
Did dragons breathe fire? 
Where is hell? 
and so much more! 

What a super opportunity! The Lord helped me to answer their questions and to weave the gospel message into this time as well. When the invitation was given, at least one child voiced their desire to be saved OUT LOUD! No one came back for counseling that day, but I am praying for the message to bear fruit. I am thankful for the faithful volunteers who share God's Word each week.

Please pray for these children to come to know the Lord and that we will have many more opportunities to share God's truth with children in the public school setting.

October 2015 
This fall we have been reminded of the Plenty
 we have in the Lord.

Plenty of Reasons to Praise Him!  God is truly Above and Beyond all!

We were able to teach 12 weeks of Vacation Bible School (4 in AL, 2 in FL, 1 in MO, 5 in MN), the most weeks we have ever done in one summer. Look at the pictures below to get a peak at this year’s VBS’s! What a joy to return to churches where we have taught VBS before and see the children and adults growing in the Lord. God also opened the door for us to teach in 5 new churches this year. What a blessing to get to know more church families and help them reach the children in their areas.

Our family did not keep track of total attendance, which seemed larger to us than last year; but we did record professions of faith and are excited that 68 children and at least one adult were saved during VBS! We are thankful for reports from some churches that are growing in number and fervor since we were with them. Please pray that each church can continue to work with these dear ones to grow them up in the Lord.

We were also able to attend a Family Camp Bible School where we sang a few songs and Stan taught one session. After VBS was over, we drove down to MO teach the children at a fall Chinese retreat. We have also provided piano accompaniment, preaching, teaching, and special music for church services. Teaching an after-school Bible Club at a public school this past week was a great joy. The children had lots of questions and God’s Word had the answers!

Stan’s congestive heart failure and A-fib discovered in August of last year did not keep him from ministry this summer. We praise God to report his heart function is now back to normal although his A-fib still needs work. His diabetes is also improved and the diabetic sores on his foot and legs are gone!

Plenty of Opportunities to Trust Him!  God is good all the time!

Our summer ministry went through Labor Day and after that much of our time has been taken up with doctor’s visits, recovering from the constant travel, and preparing for the next phase of ministry. Stan has been undergoing monthly shots in his eyes to prevent blindness, but it seems his eyes are getting worse, not better. He just underwent a sleep apnea test. The cardiologist is concerned that the sleep problems he has had for years could be tied to his heart problems. 

Bryan’s hemoglobin level is low even after several iron shots, which is not helping his energy level or blood flow to his brain. Scar tissue in his arms is making it hard to get IV’s in these days. The platelets in his blood are very high, which is dangerous; and we are working at getting that number down. Please pray that these will go down to a more normal range soon! The EEG he had done did not seem to link his jerking to brain seizure activity. He will be seeing a neurologist October 30. We are also trying some different strategies to help him get better sleep. We need prayer for healing, wisdom, and more energy!

God has opened up a winter headquarters for us down south! We plan to head down there before it snows, but it’s hard to calculate the timing of such in MN. There is still a lot to do before we can take off, including more important doctor’s appointments, sorting through and packing more of what we need, and getting it stuffed in our van, small car, and trailer. We are excited by God’s faithfulness!

Thank you for your much needed prayers for us and the many other ways you have supported our family and ministry.

2015 Summer Ministry 

We had an amazing summer seeing God show Himself to be Above and Beyond all! Here is a brief look at the 12 "Above and Beyond" VBS weeks with which God blessed us. We had good attendance for most of the summer; and no matter the number, we trust that it was just what He purposed. The Holy Spirit worked mightily and 69 hearts made professions of faith in Jesus Christ! Let's remember to Look Up and put Christ above all in our heart and life daily!

Here is a glimpse of what we are working on for this summer! 

Ready for an adventure that’s above and beyond the everyday? 
Let’s go by hot-air balloon on a whirlwind tour of five far off countries,
 discovering landmarks, laws of science, flying reptiles, 
and amazing truths that don’t change no matter what country you are in.

This year’s VBS “Above and Beyond!” is a message from God Who is above all and has power and wisdom beyond our understanding. Let’s Go with God!

January 2015 News
This last month we have done a lot of looking.

Looking back at the past year, we see how God worked in amazing ways on our behalf.

He opened the doors that allowed us to be a part of the fellowship and ministry of many church families. To present the truth of Creation and proclaim our great Creator Saviour and His Gospel with both previously and newly composed Creation Presentations. We were privileged to get know many individuals and share what the Lord is doing in their lives and ours.
He allowed us to create last year’s VBS curriculum, “Talking Rocks Ranch.” It was a joy to teach it in 10 churches as well as present part of it at a couple of churches before the summer began. The children and adults who attended really seemed to enter into the “Old West” fun and the Lord gave us great freedom to share the message, “Be Ready Next Time!” that the rocks laid down by the Flood cry out. We have a great God who judges sin but also remembers mercy and extends forgiveness and grace to those who turn to Him in faith and obedience. We are so grateful for the 25 professions of faith.

Looking up in trust that God is faithful.

When Stan was diagnosed with multiple heart conditions in the middle of our second to last VBS, we were suddenly minus a key person for our VBS ministry. God was not surprised and provided us with people who were willing to step in and fill the gap for those two weeks. In the weeks and, in fact, months that followed, we focused on the health issues that were keeping Stan from being able to preach, sing, or even talk for some time due to coughing spells, weakness, and doctor’s orders. The Lord used many of you to provide for our financial needs during that time.
Our laptop finally had to be retired and the Lord graciously provided us with a much newer one in time for the Chinese Retreat that we taught over Christmas. It was a wonderful 5 days with 230 young hearts to minister to, many who came back each day with questions, and 8 professions of faith. Sadly, during the transfer to the new computer, we somehow lost all the pictures we had downloaded onto it since April 2014, including all our 2014 VBS pictures. The new PowerPoint program is also much more advanced than the old one, and our presentations have been greatly darkened and altered due to the change. We praise God our Rock for allowing us to make the changes needed in time for each of the teaching sessions at the Chinese Retreat to make them work. Please pray for Jessica as she needs to re-create all of our presentations using the new program.

Looking forward to what God has for us next.

With our health improved, we are getting excited about what the Lord has in mind for 2015. Brainstorming is taking place for this year’s VBS Curriculum and we are happy to say that our theme is going to be uplifting with our working title of “A Message from Above!” We are praying for wisdom and direction for this, as well as speaking engagements and other ministry opportunities. Thank you for your much needed prayers for us and the many other ways you have supported our family and ministry.
