One of the best parts of our summer

We had such a full summer, full of learning and work and meeting people from all over the place!

At first, we were a little wary of west coasters....and also their shoes.

But actually we had lots in common.

We all like eating.

We all wash dishes.

We all love singing about the Lord!

(Daddy plays bass.)

And now we feel just like family....and we are!

Daniel met the grandbaby of the folks who arranged the first creation science conference our family ever attended...back in Sacramento in the '90s!  But he was unable to get her autograph.

Another sweet family from the land of our ancestral heritage, excited about the Lord, his Word and his wondrous works!

We met these sweet sisters at the local laundromat.  They live in town but had never known much about the 7Wonders Museum until we showed up on their laundry day with 7 full hampers, and 5 full laundry baskets.  It just demanded an explanation.

This great Canadian family came for a tour and gladly obliged our requests for them to say "again" again and again!  More power to them!

Another family from the pacific northwest, but new to Mount St Helens.

We were happy to meet in person this local, young family who came for a tour and stayed for dinner and devotions.

We all found it fantastic to know that even though we live thousands of miles apart, with different circumstances and struggles, the Lord is showing us many of the same things in His Word.

We are thankful for the wonderful blessings the Lord gave us through fellowship with His people who crossed our path this summer!

Hello Klein Family! You blessed our family tremendously when we visited MSH and the 7Wonders Museum! Thanks for allowing us to ride in your BUS (that was so cool) and for putting up with our silly kiddos. Thanks for sharing your water bottles and homemade pizza with us. Thanks for serving the Lord so faithfully. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us. We were deeply impressed by many things that day and continue to be as we ponder God's calling on our lives. With much love and gratitude, the Breit Family from OR (Ben, Katrina and 4 silly kids)
