On Friday, Sept. 15th, we had Thomas Bailey, a speaker from Creation Ministries International come to our church. It was a very informative evening about how evolution is impossible. He also showed how the rest of the Bible is very tied to Genesis and that Jesus quoted from there.

Mom arranged for people to bring Creation snacks (The Seven Days of Creation). Below are some pictures. Sorry, some are a bit blurry : ).
Anyone for some “Ocean Punch”?
Genesis 1:1- In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
On June 15, we went up to Big River for a Father-son fishing trip with our church. We caught many fish as a group but only kept a few. The biggest fish caught was about 30 inches and the smallest was about 12 inches (that made it into the boat).
Jesse with a Walleye.
Levi with a Northern Pike.
Picture of part of the group after fishing (Only two of our family were there on the second day). We had a very good time there.
Matthew 13:47-50. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
What our apple and cherry orchards looked like recently!
Some of our 500 little balls of fluff under the heat lamp!!
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.Genesis 1:29
He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Psalm 91:4
After the CWVFF conference ended (in March…sorry we have been busy!), Dad and I went to pick up a car so we could get to the different tourist things that we were going to see during the next 2 days. It took about five minutes to get to the rental agency from our hotel with a shuttle. Once Dad got all the stuff figured out, we drove away and took the wrong turn (the GPS told us to) and went a long way away from where we wanted to go so finally we stopped and checked the GPS and realized that we had it set for the wrong place. When we got back close to the hotel, there were roads below us and above so we couldn’t tell which exit to take so we took the same wrong exit many times . We could see our hotel below us but we couldn’t get there. We finally decided not to rely on the GPS and we got to our hotel pretty quick! (about 45 min.)!
Sunday morning we attended a large Baptist Church that had a choir and orchestra. Here are a few pictures about other things we did after church and Monday before we flew out:
Mom and Dad in front of the San Fernando Cathedral. This Cathedral is in downtown San Antonio and when it gets dark they have a laser light show on the front of the cathedral about the history of Texas. We didn’t want to stay there till the evening so we didn’t see it.
One of the highlights was going on the Scooter Power Tour! The scooters went up 20 mph! We went on a 2 hour tour.
Mom decided not to come on the scooter tour, but instead tour the Alamo which is a famous fort in Texas history.
Dad, Micah and I on the scooter tour in front of the downtown area of the River Walk which is a famous 15 mile network of walk ways along the banks of the San Antonio River. There are barges floating down the river giving tours and many restaurants along the walkway.
Another thing we did was go to the Natural Bridge Cavern.
Stalagmites and Stalactites that joined together to make some columns.
We had an enjoyable time at San Antonio and hope we can go back again someday.
Psalm 24:1 – The earth is the Lord‘s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
