Oct 26 we had a blessed evening with our neighbours as we celebrated another successful harvest season. The children and young people teamed up for an impromptu mega choir to praise our Heavenly Father.

Just in time!
We kind of celebrated our grand opening with a wedding! Only 10 days after we moved in we celebrated the marriage of two young people Adam and Naomi, and had a full house to join in. The dining hall has been a long time coming, but we spread out the construction over 3.5 years as we were in no real hurry to finish. Several other project took priority over the course of its construction. We had over a hundred guests joining the celebrations.

We're about one month away from grand opening of our new dining hall! The area below is the actual dining area with overflow area on the second level. There are still quite a few finishing touches left, but main projects are all complete...., it's been a long time coming...

Nearly 100 young people partook of a week of intense Discipleship meetings right after new year, and we were amazed at the faithfulness of God! We witnessed conversions and deliverance from chains, and most of all, a deep sense that many of these young people are ready and willing to move on to a deeper level of commitment and discipleship. Praise the Lord!

We're well into the harvest season, having begun in late August, but the weather in Sept has been less than ideal! However, the crew is humming along whenever we get a chance and God has been so good! Below are a few pix from this year's harvest. Enjoy!

Everybody wants to get the big one! While fishing wasn't the greatest this year, one of the brothers caught a whopper! It was over 40" long! The weekend couldn't have been more beautiful as the men took some time out from the grind to relax and fellowship.

From One to four houses in six weeks.
It has been a hectic 8 weeks for our construction crews as we began 3 new dwellings at once this summer. 2 of them needed to be done in 6 weeks, and sure enough, the two married couples were able to move into their new home on July 17th.

Our first double wedding in 7 years as we celebrated the two couples' special day with friends and brethren from far and wide. Gideon & Tracy are both from the home church, while Luke's wife come all the way from Missouri, USA! Great time of fellowship and spirit-filled music.

Even though we got rained out somewhat, we had a blessed time on Sunday afternoon with picnic and graduation. Combining them together was a bit too much, but it all went over quite smoothly and successfully. From left to right its Nathan Stahl, Joyce Walter, and Brian Walter. Blessings on their future.

Another successful school year bites the dust at Fort Pitt Christian School! Last official day of school today, and we're all looking forward to 3 months of summer! Praise God for living in a free land where we can teach our children and live our Christian life free from persecution and harassment. A privilege denied to countless people in these last days.

We started seeding on April 28, and cleaned up on May 23rd. The weather was very cooperative, but it was getting very dry as they were nearing the finish line. We have 2 of these rigs, and our land is spread out over nearly a 200 km diameter.

Very sad memorial for Cindy, the sweet little baby of Pauly and Lisa, who went home to Jesus on April 15. While it hurts to let her go, we need to grasp a greater reality and picture God is developing in our lives and brotherhood. "For He does not afflict willingly, nor grieve the children of men. Lam. 3:33.

Five of our young people, along with 5 others from Altona and Elmendorf fellowships spent a couple weeks in Haiti at an orphanage. It was a incredible experience for them, complete with a culture shock. They spent much of their time just loving the children and caring for the property. The orphanage has 80 children and is in much need of godly administration, staff, and repair.
