Fall is in the air...

So September is here and summer has once again managed to race by us.  We had a wonderful three months of ministry here at Camp Forest Springs, along with plenty of summer fun with the girls!!  Today I look outside and it is gray and a chill is definitely in the air.  Ahhhhhhhhhhh....Autumn...with it comes football, back to school, warm soups, and of course lots of cozy sweaters!! :-)

For those of you who have been wondering, Ryan and I are still working on our support raising.  We are praising God as we are at 71% of our needed funds.  We look forward to finishing this process, as we walk in faith with the Lord.  Along with our support raising you will find us helping out as needed at Camp, volunteering in the girls' classrooms, and of course...cheering on the the Rib Lake Redman football and volleyball teams!! :-)

Zoe and Maia are excited to be back in school.  Maia is in 4th grade this year and thinks her teacher, Mr.Mayer, is SO funny!!  Zoe is now in 7th grade and is playing Jr.High Volleyball.  They both are doing very well!

We thank you all for your continued prayers and support and hope that you are enjoying God's glory in your life this fall...however He reveals it to you!

Where have they gone?...

That's the question on your minds, isn't it?  It may seem that the Reissners have disappeared, but take heart...we are still alive.  June was a blur for us.  We have moved into our new (rental) house, with the help of several friends  We now live about 6 miles from camp.  We are loving having a house to "tend to" again!  Maia went to Juniors Plus camp for the week shortly after we moved in and had a blast!  Ryan and I facilitated our First Adventure Day Camp for ages 5 to 8 during that same week.  We had 44 kids learning about God's wonders.  It was amazing to see young hearts hungry for the Truth.  Zoe went to camp the next week and as usual wanted to stay longer!   Ryan has also been busy facilitating groups on the High Ropes course most days since Take 7 camp.

So, that was June.  July brings support raising.  We are trying to be finished by Sept. 1st.  God has been good to us in the past 9 months.  We are currently at 64% of our goal, and are working hard to be able to be on staff full-time.  We thank you for your prayers.  We could not be on this journey without people praying for strength and wisdom for us.  God is good...ALL THE TIME!!!

Summers COMING!!... finally stopped raining after a week of much needed moisture. We had a beautiful weekend with  temperatures in the seventies.  We spent much of the weekend playing softball and volleyball outside.  After church on Sunday the girls came out of their bedrooms in full beach gear!  I believe the summer bug has bit them already!!...I'll let you see for yourselves what happened!! :)
