Fun Photos of Our Summer Visiting Ministry Partners and Family

Whew! From June 26-August 10, we drove well over 3,000 miles, stayed in 5 different states, dinner in 14 different homes, slept/lived in 8 different places, went to 15 parks, 4 pools, and one wedding…It was a very busy, exhausting, yet energizing 6 weeks of visiting ministry partners and family! Below are some photos of some of the fun. A BIG thanks to all who hosted us for dinner, in your homes, etc. We are very blessed to have an amazing church in KC and GREAT friends and family in KC and IL!

Kansas City (disclaimer: We were enjoying fellowshiping with with our church and friends there that we realized we failed to take almost any pictures!!! So if you’re not pictured just know that we had a great time catching up!)


Betsy fellowshiping with missed sisters in Christ at a gathering of our church – Christ Fellowship KC. We could not love our KC church family more! We miss them everyday!


Our church held a Bible and Basketball one day camp while we were there. It was great!!! The boys learned basketball skills with the friends they missed so much and heard a teen’s conversion story and a gospel presentation. Great day!
