our first week

If you are curious about about what the Sanderson's have been up to lately, here are a few pictures. This one is from our cruise around Lake Coeur d'Alene with the IronMan staff.

This past week we volunteered for the IronMan competition that was held here. Over 2,000 athletes competed from all over the country and all over the world.

In the midst of all the activities, we have had a little unpacking to do. I think there may be just a few boxes left.

On Saturday the church and mission teams here helped feed pancakes to over 1,000 people participating or helping with the IronMan.

This week please pray for us as we are helping with a VBS at another church in our association. That Artic Edge song will get stuck in your head. Beware!

We are so thankful to be here, and we are really thankful for your prayers. Come see us! We miss you already.

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.

  10. Just food for thought....

    All of the Baptist churches I have seen are doing "Artic Edge" as the VBS theme. All the Methodist churches I have seen are doing "Fiesta". God has a sense of humor after all.
