Camping - Norfork Dam Quarry

October 1-3, we decided to go camping (about 30 min from our house). The nights were a little chilly but the quiet beauty was wonderful. The first night we went down to the river and watched the fly fisherman for a while. The campground also had 2 play gounds the boys enjoyed. We made S'mores, played card games and let the boys run around with their glow sticks. We were awakened at midnight to a siren - warning everyone they were letting water out to the dam we found out later. The next morning we went across the street to the fish hatchery. Then the boys went fishing in the creek. We could see so many fish rihgt infront of us but they didn't bite the bait. One more night in the tent, then a pancake breakfast before packing up and heading home. A nice family get away!
October also started our Missions Emphasis Month and we were challenged each day to read from Meditations on Missions. It was such a good devotional and really helped focus our thoughts on what God says about missions. In the evening church services Mike played the videos "Dispatches from the Front Lines." They were so eye opening to the need of the gospel around the world but also an encouragement to see other Christians in so many other countries.
