Things happening

This weekend the Magees and we are going to a missionary conference hosted by NAMB in Seattle. It is an all-expense paid trip, so we are looking forward to some down time and hopefully some productive time hearing from NAMB. Plus we haven't been to Seattle.

Two people who have been attending NorthStar for a while now have decided to be baptized. The couple both come from a different faith background and want to set the record straight between them and God, so to speak. They will be making a public profession of their faith.

Here's a taste:
Wedding a healthy, well-informed and robust theology to a consuming
passion for the evangelization of the nations, we must come together,
as never before, to carry out the final command given by King Jesus. We
may not agree on everything, but we agree on more than enough to work
together for our Lord Jesus in fulfilling the Great Commission. So,
will we live or will we die? Will we come together for life or
fracture apart in death? I make my choice for life. It is my hope and
my prayer that you will join me.

here are some pics from art on the green this weekend. we took l out for some fresh air, fun, and cda artwork. she loved being carried around by her daddy in her carrier.

all of our family have come and gone and we were sooo thankful for their visits. i don't know how we would have made it without their help. so for now we will work on our skype webcam skills so they can watch this precious one grow.
