Voice of the Martyrs

Sunday, June 5, 2011

 Once again I have fallen behind in the world of blogger being very busy living life. There is lots to catch up on so without further ado I will start with our time volunteering at the Voice of the Martyrs with the Hansens back in April.

Arriving the night before we volunteer, we enjoy some fun and fellowship at lodgings available for those that aren't local.

For half of us, assembling boxes was our job for most of the day.  

Other box makers. They kept bringing out pallet after pallet of packages of cardboard templates. They brought the last pallet out shortly before closing and with all hands on deck we were able to make them all!

Philip, Marscel, and Seal-A-Tron, the shrink wrap machine

A time for the parents to catch up with each other at break

The now engaged Erik and Amber packaging supplies. Congratulations you two!

The moms take a turn at shrink wrapping.

"You will show me the path of life;In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."

Guy bonding

Aren't they so cute together?

A familiar site... this is something my brothers would do!

After dinner we enjoyed a time of worship. God has truly blessed Amber with a beautiful voice!

This was the most windy volleyball game I've ever played. The wind would change mid way, making no one know where the ball would drop on the other side of the net.

High fives all around for so many fun games... even though my team lost every one. I guess we need a little more practice at wind volleyball :-)

Thus ended our night with dancing and hugs all around.
