TASTE of PINECRAFT by Sherry Gore

"Taste of Pinecraft....Glimpses of Sarasota, Florida's Amish Culture and Kitchens" is spiral-bound, 446 pages including nearly 700 Amish & Mennonite recipes and stories & tidbits from Pinecraft, Forida, the Plain People's Paradise.
This sounds like such a special book, not only recipes but the stories and tidbits sound great. I'm looking forward to getting a book of my own. Sherry Gore is one special lady.

1st Communion and Birthday Party

We had two celebrations combined into one last Sunday afternoon. Our grandson Keaton had 1st Communion and his Birthday Party. It was a very busy day for this handsome young man and his family.

Keaton is the second son of our youngest son, Jeffery. Did you get that? Keaton chose St. Sebastian, Patron Saint of athletes, because since his birth, Keaton has been our little sports man. In fact, anything with a ball associated with it has been his passion. I made a wall hanging for Keaton with part of the Prayer to St. Sebastian on it. As soon as I get it framed I'll post a photo of the finished product.

Tired and grumpy little sister, GraceAnne.

I'm sure you noticed the missing tooth. Just had to get a photo of that famous toothless smile. If you knew his father when he was Keaton's age, you'll feel like you are seeing Jeff all over again.

OK, on to the Birthday Party!! Keaton was very much more impressed with the BD presents than the 1st Communion ones. Can you imagine that?

In the tree is cousin Parker. Those boys LOVE to climb.

JESUS Film Harvest Partners

The Buma People
The Buma people are a formerly unreached people group in the Horn of Africa. JESUS Film Harvest Partners had the opportunity to show the JESUS Film and something we had never seen before happened. At one point in the film, the people spontaneously rushed toward the screen on both sides and responded to Jesus speaking their language. People of all ages began to raise their hands and pray to God.
This is evidence of Jesus' words, "If you lift me up, people will be drawn to me." At this showing, 350 people our of 500 viewers prayed to receive Christ into their lives!

Saturday we were privileged to attend the JESUS Film Harvest Partners Indianapolis World Challenge. . . and what a challenge we received. The Mission of JFHP is " 'Sharing God's love with the lost to help fulfill the Great Commission' JESUS Film Harvest Partners is a ministry which partners with other Kingdom ministries to make Christ-like disciples in the nations. JESUS Film Harvest Partners is involved in evangelism, discipleship, church development, leadership training, and pastoral education."

For every $3 given, one person makes a decision for Christ.
