Fall Festival

Remember a few weeks ago when I listed the major events that were coming up that I was responsible to organize? Well, this is one of them. I've been getting ready for this event for the past few weeks.

We have done this in the past and usually get a pretty good crowd. Actually, as a result of having a fall festival in the park, the first year Dan & I were here, our guitar player ended up coming to our church and coming to know the Lord.

I love this event! This year I got smart and instead of doing all the organizing myself and then just having helpers at the event, I delegated a task to everyone. So someone was in charge of planning, purchasing, and getting helpers for the craft. The same with the refreshments, face painting, and balloon animals. My job was advertising and purchasing the supplies and putting together the goody bags for the children who come.

Please pray for this event on Sunday. This is the first year we are adding a band. They are a rock/blues style Christian group. Their guitar player used to go to our church until they moved away. Pray that the Lord would really bless the entire day.
