First Day of Sankey Homeschool '10-'11

The boys are off to a great start in homeschool this year - 10th, 8th and 6th grades. Our first day of school was Wednesday, August 11. I will say that Geometry and Physical Science are giving Jordan and me a stretch, but we're hanging in there.

Jordan's 1st day of 10th grade

Cameron's 1st day of 8th grade

Logan's 1st day of 6th grade

I didn't realize until I was uploading these pictures that all the boys have on gray t-shirts. That certainly wasn't planned... :-) Maybe their brains were all thinking alike as they chose their clothes for that morning.
We would appreciate your prayers for the boys (and the teacher!!) this year, that God would help them develop and use their minds and talents for Him.

Saltillo Campmeeting 2010

We enjoyed attending and participating in our Annual Camp here in Saltillo a few weeks back.
Here's Christy checking out the announcement on the white board. Gotta know what's going on if you're the pastor's daughter. :-)

Marc was asked to preach on Tuesday and Friday nights...the Lord helped him do a wonderful job.

The other evangelist - Hno. Berzain from Monterrey, N.L. Mexico

Saltillo VBS

This year's VBS in Saltillo was the largest one they have ever had. I so much enjoyed participating and helping out every morning that week.

On Tuesday morning, Cesia (pastor's daughter, pink headband) had to take her class to the dining hall for craft time - she had almost 50 kids, ages 6 and under!

The VBS kids singing songs and doing the motions.

Thanks so much to the Oklahoma City BMC for donating these craft items for the kids to use. We appreciate your contributions!

Melisa with her class of girls. Melisa (daughter of Jose Correa) is very gifted in children's ministry. I believe the Lord has a special place for her to work in His kingdom!

Some of the boys listening to Pastor Dolores tell the story of Abraham and Isaac.

Sylvia called her twin daughters, Kenya and Christy, up to the front one day while teaching the Bible story, to illustrate what kind of twins Esau and Jacob were; twins, but not identical ones. I think these 2 are a lot cuter than Jacob and Esau were... :-)

The Sunday morning VBS program...many parents came to enjoy the presentation.

I fell in love with this sweet little girl that week.

As I watched Pastor Dolores and his wife Sylvia, along with laymen and youth in the Saltillo church, organize and direct the VBS this year, I was struck again by the huge positive of our Mexican brothers and sisters ministering/taking the Gospel to their own people. No language and cultural barriers - they do it so much better than we could. We are simply here to aid/teach/equip them and they are fulfilling their own Great Commission!

Miller 40th Anniversary Celebration

My parents, Henry and Janan Miller, celebrated 40 years of marriage this summer and we honored them with a celebration in late July.

Daddy with his first grandson, Jordan. He broke the "girl cycle" - smiles!

We love you, Mama and Daddy!
