Fun Projects.

Here are a couple fun projects I got to do this week! 

Westside Christian Academy Deluxe Retractable.  It's so cool to see it in print.  I had about 15 proofs in all for Westside to look over and adjust.  It was a neat experience and made me reminisce the life of a teacher.  (It still catches me off-guard to NOT have work to do at home after work each night.  I feel very uncomfortable going home with only a purse and returning to work the same way!)
 Note:  You observant folk out there may have noticed my new glasses.  Can I put in a quick ad for America's Best?  Thanks!  Two pairs of glasses for $50.00!!!  AND a free eye exam.  Can't beat it!  When I realized I couldn't read street signs anymore, I knew it was time to go in.  Hooray for computer jobs!
This is a game board I made for deputation trips.  It gives TECH missionaries an opportunity to play a game with the church/kids/families and tell them more about TECH at the same time.  This is my first project that I did the preliminary work in Adobe Illustrator.  Er... that's not entirely true.  This is the first project that I designed my own line structures in Adobe Illustrator.  How does that song go?  "Movin' on up!"

The Back Table

At Northwood Church, our "Front Room"--aka sanctuary-- is set up with rows of chairs in the middle, and tables surrounding those chairs for those who would like to sit at a table with their Bible and coffee. It's different, but it works really well. The table in the back corner by the sound room, affectionately referred to as The Back Table, is always packed with high school/college-aged people who have become very special to Matt and me. We first had them over in September, and I think we've developed a routine of having them over every other Monday night.

The girls asked us to host a Halloween party for them. I told them that we don't really do Halloween, but that they are welcome to come over. We did a devotion about being a new creature in Christ, not just taking bits and pieces and applying those to our lives, but actually CHANGING. It went well.

We wanted to share some pictures with you of our friends. Some nights it's only a few that come over, some nights it's about 15. Always different. I think on average it's about 8. Anyway, enjoy the pics... and please pray for those you see in them. Each person has a different story & challenge in life. And not all of them are Believers.
