August 24-26th, Garment of Praise and families headed to Maryland for our biennial event– Country Fest. Actually, Country Fest is an annual event. Garment of Praise only sings at it every other year! It is a very fun, family-friendly day to attend, and our families anticipate the time spent in different activities, watching demonstrations, and indulging in the delicious chicken BBQ and other treats!

Sorry, our boys cleaned up the pedal tractor pulling contest! (OK, not quite "cleaned up", but had fun pedalling and winning a few.)

Brian-- looking very disappointed! They just announced that they would let the younger children collect candy first, before letting the older ones cross the tape. His loss=little kids' gain.

Sunday morning, we participated in a service at Bittinger Mennonite Church and enjoyed a delish potluck lunch! Thank you for the warm fellowship and encouragement we received. The new acquaintances we make and warm friendships we renew, make this singing ministry a joy!
