Lizzie Paragliding in Romania

Lizzie is on a three-week trip (adventure) to Romania. She is a part of a team that is going to various towns and is helping with Bible clubs for children.

One afternoon, she had the opportunity to go paragliding! Here’s proof. There are two videos at the bottom.

Pacific Airshow 2021

On Saturday, October 2, 2021, eight of us went to the Pacific Airshow at Huntington Beach. The viewing area was a long stretch of the beach. All of us went except for Victoria (who had to work).

The Air Force Thunderbirds, Canadian Snowbirds, and Navy Blue Angels all performed along with a number of others. The crowd was estimated at 1.5 million people!

It was sunny and warm (temps in the 80s). A few of us got a bit too much sun.

Postscript. Due to an oil spill just off the coast, the Sunday show was canceled.

Josiah at Sheep Hills

Josiah has enjoyed fixing up Jason’s old BMX bike. He’s learning to do wheelies and some tricks on it. There is a near-by dirt park for BMX bike riders that he really loves going to.

Here is a seven-second video clip from July 24, 2021.

The Lord’s Prayer

On Sunday, June 20, 2021, Warner Avenue Baptist Church had a Scriptorium–an event where different individuals and groups of individuals quoted verses from a section of the Bible. This evening it was Matthew chapters 4 through 7.

The Lord’s Prayer is Matthew 6:9-13. Instead of quoting the verses, Victoria, Sarah, and Joanna sang them…quite beautifully. Lizzie played the piano for them.
