Church in the Park

For the past few summers, our church has changed its location in the month of August, meeting up at Malenovice instead of down in Frýdlant. It's always a highlight of the summer to have church in the "park" up here!

And today is even more special with Tyler, Lara, Judah and Asher here for church with us.

I wish there was a way to have church outdoors more than just in August! There's something so special about worshipping outside in God's beautiful creation.

And how much more precious when a little hand sneaks over to rest on Nonnie's lap during worship?!

It was a treat to have this handsome little fellow on my lap too!

Tyler and Lara came today because Tyler was preaching for us!

I've heard Tyler teach a number of times in English, but haven't heard him preach here in Czech. That was a treat! He is a gifted communicator, with rich thoughts from God's word that press right into your heart.

Many years ago a similar looking blond-haired little boy watched HIS daddy preach in Czech.

I can't help but wonder if there will be another generation of Patty men preaching someday, like their dads (Caleb included!).

"I have no greater joy than this: to hear that my children are walking in the truth." 3 John 1:4

  1. There really aren't enough words to capture the joy that this brings to your heart, is there? So I'm feeling the joy of the next generation----YOUR SONS----following in the footsteps of his grandpa and dad....and there is NO DOUBT that Judah and Asher will too....and Charlie....and new baby...and more to come!!!! I'm CELEBRATING with you!!!!
