From Sue Gable
Wow, the month of June has just flown by. Homeschooling evaluation and next year’s objectives are all finished and turned into the school district. I was able to introduce Judy to the Superintendent’s secretary—the go-to gal as far as our homeschooling is concerned. She seems to really admire what we are trying to accomplish which is probably why things have gone so smoothly over the years. That combined with many prayers over the years as I hadn’t had any experience homeschooling prior to moving to Schuylkill County. Next year Rachel with be in 10th grade and Kyla in 2nd.
We had a good time as a family celebrating Father’s Day. My husband sends his thanks to the Ruth Ladies for the gift certificate for books and is going to be using it soon. My husband also had the opportunity to preach for Pastor Morrison in NY in the middle of the month. About half of the family enjoyed a few days away. We even took a short drive to Danbury, CT. There is a very nice mall there with a two-story carousel!
Sarah, Rachel and Alan went to camp last week and all gave testimony as to the wonderful preaching. We appreciate the fact that LVBC cares enough to go to all the work of getting a camp together and allowing the smaller churches to send their teens. A big thanks especially to the “younger Gables” for all their hard work at camp and behind the scenes ahead of time. Oh yes, and the bus doesn’t drive itself all those 18-20 hours either! Thanks, Chris!
Things are going well at the church. We had our special pot-luck dinner and nursing home service this month. The folks at Pinebrook seemed to be more alert and attentive than usual and Joe N. preached a very practical, down-to-their-level message on trials. We are so thankful to have folks willing to serve.
We are looking forward to having a July 4th dinner on the grounds this year. It was a spur of the moment addition to the day as we haven’t had a picnic for the 4th in quite a few years. Well, I would like to write more but we are expecting a visiting missionary family within the hour. I will tell you all more, next month. Until then,
Your sister in Christ,
