Friday night our friends the McNews hosted a family overnight Bible Smugglers party. There were about 70 people there to play and visit.
everyone’s cars and the view
We set up our tents, had a hot dog roast and played Bible Smugglers! Most everyone was involved in some way or another. About 35 kids from ages 8 to 18 played and the grown-ups were the “churches”, “jailers” and “Bible hander-outers?”.

They played 3 rounds until 11:00pm! It was so fun to watch them come back all out of breath and excited, get more Bibles and head back out to avoid capture and deliver God’s Word. The best part was watching all the kids play together!
When we headed to bed, the clouds were just beginning to roll in and cover up the starlit sky. And at about 3:30am, we awoke to the sound of rain hitting the tent. By morning everything was soaking wet, but we enjoyed a cozy breakfast of steel cut oats, banana muffins and hard boiled eggs.

It was a great time and we are looking forward to our next Bible Smuggling adventure!
