Every year, our church puts on an event called "Beast Feast." It's for boys and men only. They usually have a really great and well-known speaker. They have exhibitions and booths and games and food...and the Gospel is presented in a very clear way.
It's a lot of work to put on an event like this. Men and women have been out at the EXPO Center every day and night this week...working on preparations for tonight. The hope is that men and boys who wouldn't come to "church," will come to this...and hear the Gospel.
This morning, Jim got up early and went to run in a 10k race in town. Then, he came home for about an hour...and was at the EXPO Center before noon. He got home tonight at 9 p.m. He had such a long day.
He said there were about 2500 men and boys there. Tomorrow, we will find out how many decisions were made for Christ...which is really the whole point of the whole thing.
I got up this morning and made breakfast for Joshua and I. Clark decided that he would go with Jim to the race...so they ate when they got home. Jim placed 2nd in his age-group, and had a really good time!
Holly and Aaron-the-son-in-law came over around lunch, and stayed all day. The guys hung out together while Holly and I went to the grocery. And then the guys took turns playing BAGGO while I made brownies.
I had planned on making Chicken 'n' Dumplin's for dinner. It's one of Clark's favorites, and I wanted to make something that was "homey" since he was home. :) Holly and Aaron went to eat at a Mexican restaurant, and then came back to watch the Razorback basketball game.
I made sausage balls...FOR THE BABY...since Holly said that really sounded good to her. :)
It's been a good day.
