Friends Visit

Bates Family Uncategorized

Each year we are excited to meet new friends that encourage us in our faith. This year we met one such family at the Valentine’s IMG_4067Banquet in Chicago hosted by IBLP ministries when they invited us for supper at their house the following day.


We were able to visit with a few of their children at the homeschool conference in TeIMG_6993xas. While there, Chad Paine took our family picture.

Last week wIMG_7011e rejoiced in sharing a brief visit with Dr. Paine and the rest of his precious family when they stopped at our house on their way from Florida back to Chicago. We enjoyed playing Rook, horseback riding, and a visit to the Norris Dam.

We are so grateful for Godly friends that set an example for us!
