The Church of the Open Door is celebrating it 10th anniversary as a church!
We had a great time today with a picnic, swimming, volleyball, and so much more! I posted just a taste of my photos because I am really tired after a long day in the forest.
Everyone brought food and we laid it all out together and shared everything with one another. I took a salad, some Edam and Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, granny smith apples and trail mix. Everything was a hit especially the trail mix... I took a large container full and it was all gone before the meal was over.
Chuck and Vicky, our guests, and new friends visiting from Henderson Hills Church in Oklahoma, brought some marshmallows and it was a first for many of the children and the grown ups as well. Some ate them plain and some were roasted over the fire. We went through two bags and they wanted more!
We were near the river in a city called Gariachi Klutch, Gariachi is pronounced like mariachi! In English that means "hot key" the forest area is up in the mountains. And it was well worth the hour chartered bus ride to get there!
