Bible collating

On Wednesday we had the most wonderfulest time with our girls club collating bibles. I think that Adrian said we did around 1,100. It was fun to race around the table. Kelsea was by far one of the fastest. So was Tina. So if any of you are interested in helping at this ministry, email me. The Tracht's church is making 50,000 for this community and more for other countries. Have a great week and don't eat too much candy(you can if you want to). I will try to do the same. Maybe we should all go jogging afterwards. Oh and I was carving my pumpkin into a rose, but it didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted it to. So I turned it around and made a happy face on the other side. I think that it didn't turn out because I used the wrong tools. So that is what is going on. How are all my readers doing? God Bless, <>< Heidi<><

Halloween, an opportunity to care.

As Halloween is coming up in just 2 days, our family has been questioning whether to trick or treat. Every Halloween people across America open their homes. This holiday is not christian, yet God has given us this opportunity. This opportunity must not be passed up. In past years, our family has taken time and stayed at least half an hour in many homes of neighbors. They often just need support and someone to talk to. Consider blessing someone this Friday by just taking time out of your day to talk to them. PEOPLE DO NOT CARE HOW MUCH WE KNOW UNTIL THEY KNOW HOW MUCH WE CARE. One year I remember we forgot to visit one of our neighbors and they called us asking us to come and visit even though it was fairly late. So we did. Another neighbor looks forward so much to the visit that she bakes pies and makes apple cider just for us. Just take time to care and then they will care about why you care. So make this Halloween better than ever and remember, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Have a great day, I am heading off soon to go collate Bibles. More on that later though. Love, Heidi

Racoon is here

First of all we have a racoon on our farm. We don't know where he came from, but he shows up sometimes at night. Kristina believes in going green(aka. feeding every stray racoon that comes to eat the dog food.) This causes humor in our house. On monday night the racoon was eating the dog food when mom saw him. She immediately let Joy out to chase him and then realized that the racoon was headed for the chicken coup. The chickens were of course out of their pen at that moment. And we all know what racoons do to chickens. Yea. A call to arms erupted, GET THE CHICKENS BACK IN THEIR PEN BEFORE THE RACOONS EAT THEM! JE and Dad immediately headed into the dark night to rescue the chickens, very heroically. I stayed nice and warm in my bed. After the chickens were all put away and counted we all had a very uneventful night.

Bus ministry!

This Sunday I had the priviledge to help with the bus ministry! It was so neat. The kids just need Jesus Christ. They come from many different backrounds, some do not have a stable situation at home. Please pray for their salvations. Also pray for the staff to have an abundance of patience to deal with problems that arise. It was great to know that these kids are being reached with the gospel. I sat next to a very sweet little girl named Destiny.
I have probably bored you to death. So ta ta and take care and have a great week!!!!!! -Heidi

Mission's Conference!!!!!

Hi y'all
Wednesday evening, Thursday morning and evening, Friday morning and evening, Saturday evening, and Sunday, We are at Missions Conference. It has been soooooooo neat! The Tracht's pastor has chalenged the church that this year every family should hand out 250 bibles in their mission field. How neat, because that would be 50,000 bibles! America is in desperate need of God's salvation!
Gotta run, Heidi

Beware of the dangerous baker on the loose!

On Thursday somebody in our house decided to bake cookies. But the problem was, they wanted to experiment in the way they baked them. So the person placed a cookie in the microwave and cooked it for 2 minutes. In that time, the cookie lit on fire and turned 1/2 of the cookie pitch black, the other side remained completly raw. After that, I ran in and took the cookie from the person and put it under cool water. It sizzled a lot. The whole kitchen was smoky and I decided that I probably won't let that person experiment in the kitchen again. Of course the day was saved by baking a batch of perfectly cooked cookies. So remember ALWAYS BAKE THE ITEM ACCORDING TO THE RECIPE! Ta Ta for now. The baker is still on the loose, can anybody figure out who that baker is?
God Bless<><

Under the influence............of benedryl?

Yesterday one of those nasty little viruses attacked me. My partner, tissue, and I have been fighting him hand, foot, and nose ever since. Last night we were joined in the fight by benedryl. He is a trained soldier and tried to influence me to go to sleep. My body immediately started obeying, but my mind would not. So there I was, falling asleep every few seconds, and then jerking awake. I felt under the influence of benedryl. Then I willing obeyed and was out in a few seconds. So here is .......................................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.......! Huh, did you say something? I am feeling a little drowsy right now. Signing off, (your faithful warior in the battle of germs) - Heidi

Fire Building!

On Wednesday, I started a fire!!! It took our group of four girls nearly a whole packet of matched to light the fire. It was so much fun trying to get it going and keep it going. We also built a ring of rocks around our fire to stop it if it started to spread. But sad news, the county said that fires of any type or size are not allowed in this county. We always have huge bonfires in the winter. No more s'mores people. But at least I know how to make a fire now! Til next time, Heidi
