I was so blessed to spend a day at Youth Camp with our church kids. The Camp's name
is "ROYAL C RANCH". It is located in Eufaula, Ok. They also offer many weeks of camp though out the summer. They have Retreat's for men and women, and Camp Meetings with many special speakers. There is always alot of great preaching going on there.
The kids seemed to have a great time. Some of our guys had never experienced riding horses or shooting a bow and arrows. But just being away from the worlds influences and being surrounded by God's word and God's people was a blessing for them. I pray that those that made dicission will hold to them for the rest of there lives. I thank God for those precious moments.

Our Second Anniversary

Sunday July 12th was our second anniversity here at Victory Baptist Church. We had a blessed day. Pastor had a great message on Abraham and the death of Sarah. It is found in Genesis 23:1-20
After the preaching and the invitation our Jr. Church children came into the sanctuary with a big poster card with all the signatures of the children. Also, every one of the children gave me a Red Rose. It was such a blessing. I could not hold back my tears. God uses these little children in special ways. I love them all.
Then in the evening after services they had cake and ice cream. It was a great time of fellowship. We are so blessed to have a church like Victory Baptist. Pastor and love them all.

A Day at the Lake

We had and invitation to go to Nacona Lake, Tx. Our friends parents have a lake house on the lake. It is a beautiful place, so relaxing. When we arrived we had a late breakfast which included Quiche, fruit salad, and a coffee cake. With a great selection of juices and coffee. After that we walked down to the lake and rode on the pontoon boat. It was about 95 degrees with a great breeze off the lake. When we came in from the ride. Mike set up the sail boat and we went sailing. It was so fantastic. It is really and art on controling that vessel. Knowing your wind currents, watching the waves, having control of the sails. It is very educational.
After a full day on the water we went up to the lake house and prepared dinner.
We had porkloin fahitas,rice ,red beansand dessert. Then later in the evening we took another ride on the pontoon boat. The moon was reflecting beautifully on the water. It was so relaxing. It was a great day with friends.

Old Fashioned Sunday

This past Sunday was our "Old Fashioned Sunday" Service. It was a special day full of fun and preaching. The children had a hayride and games and a corn-on-the cob contest. We also had a dinner on the grounds with a Texas style brisket and all the fixings. The services had an old fashioned flair with old time preaching and old time music . Later in the afternoon we had a costume competition and a chili cookoff, and a apple pie contest. Everyone did a fantastic job.
