Meet the Aronsons
But thanks be to God , who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 15:57, 58

Fall, what a great time for things to begin cooling down (well, not in Florida!), but we do start thinking about harvest time, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. This year we took our grandkids to celebrate Grandparents Day at mom’s place. They had animals from a farm: a pig, rabbits, chickens, a goat, and a pony. Ava was very excited when she got to ride on the pony. Aiden was a bit scared so he would not ride, but we got him ...

Is it really fall again already? Seems to me that every year passes a little more quickly. Do any of you find that true in your lives? It is our hope and prayer that this finds you well and that God is blessing you in every way possible.

We have about 671 registered for this year. The teens are sending in their money. Please pray for those who are still lacking funds and are not sure where it will come from.

God is in control!
Emery has been working on the new driveway ...

It is always good to know that somehow what you are doing is a good ...

May was over and we were getting ready for the summer to begin. Emery got a phone call from his brother that his mom was not doing well. A few days later, his brother-in-law called and told him that his mom had passed away. By this time, it was the beginning of Boot Camp—now what? Emery wanted to go and so did Joseph, but finances were not there for even one to go. Thankfully, we had some people who gave ...
