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!).
