Shannah & I got an itch to make some homemade pumkin pie. We'll be cooking our own food soon, so we figured we'd get some practice in... Went to a farm on Saturday in search of some pumkins...

Hanging out at one of my favorite parks...
We stayed in Post Falls, ID with my good friend Jeff & his wife Shaleah. He took us out on the boat one evening.

Each day we have a "Missions" hour from 11:30-12:30. It's been fun interacting with these high schoolers & supporting God's work in their life to be people who proclaim the Gospel (to the ends of the earth).
Volleyball will keep you on your toes! Just like the Christian Life - never boring!
On behalf of New Tribes Bible Institute, I got the opportunity to represent unreached tribal people & challenge the students to Discover their Role in how they could be a part of reaching tribes with the Gospel. As a missions rep. at the convention, I taught 2 breakout sessions on missions. Had a good response from those who came!
As I counselor, I got to spend the week with these six delegates (Michael, Zach, Trevor, Kyle, Nick, & Matt). Part of their week (& all the students) was intensive Bible quizzing - they've spent all year studying for this! They also participated in other Ministry Training Areas, such as singing, preaching, etc. These guys are from Washington state & Illinois.
The Convention was hosted by Appalachian Bible College in Mt. Hope, WV.
On Thursday night, everybody gets together for a youth & family service. We put together a youth band & led the music for the whole group. Oh was a beautiful thing it was to be drowned out by this crowd of missionaries!! You should've heard it.
Here's the group (about 350 of them). Some of these are missionaries home for the year on furlough, some are US Missionaries serving at our training centers & headquarters. And then there were some who are still in the process of finishing training & heading overseas.
The last morning (Friday), it's customary for the worship leaders to wear an apron. I used mine as a cape.

...I took Shannah out to the place where we first met back in 2006.
(Can you tell there was someone hiding in the bushes? Haha.)
Her (belated) one-year present, called "The First Chapter" was a photobook that told the story of our relationship up to the present.
About to start a new chapter.
Shannah just made me the happiest man I've ever known!!!
(I actually proposed with a STRING ring...)
(...then suprised her with a real one.)
Talk about suprises! Just discovered the hidden camera -our friend, Ronda.
BEFORE: This was at breakfast...notice her BARE ring finger? hehehe...
Here's the string ring I actually proposed with. 'Course, it's not as sparkly as the real thing.
THE RING: For you ladies...I know this is all you really want to see.
From the side.
Hmmm...what lies ahead???
Lots of goofiness I'm sure!
AND NOW SOME FUN PIC'S:
(I still remember standing in this very spot & praying, "Oh Lord, please!")
Well, He certainly blew me away, that's for sure!
Thanks so much Ronda for all your help!!!
