it was a perfectly grand event.
It had all the necessary ingredients for a great reunion –
A never ending campfire –
in the early evening….

Morning coffee by the campfire. Well, the guys thought it was a good plan.  #2014txreunion

Of course there was the SOWER Auction!

Checkbooks up! And what will the starting bid be on these baked-fresh-this-morning sticky buns?

$50.00 you say? Who brought the forks? (The auction raised over $3500 for the ministry! Whoohoo!)
But for all the food and fun and (camp)fire, what really made the reunion so wonderful were these guys.
2014Reunion Group
What a special group of hard working, hard playing, and Jesus loving people! We’re so thankful that He continues to knit us together into a family!

  1. Good job, good pictures good time and a great big thanks.
    Laura said thanks that we did not have to cook
    You had all our good workers there

  2. What a great time! The location, facilities, meals, schedule, it was all perfect.
    Andy esp. loved the gong show (Gary’s improv). The testimony time was a
    beautiful picture of what an amazing God we have. Thanks for all your work, great pictures and for making us feel so welcome!

  3. Thanks for your kind words, LaVonne (and Andy!). We will long be yelling out “two bucks” at every occasion we can think of! It was so good to get to know you two- we’re so glad you came!
