Every other Christmas they all try to gather in Branson, MO. for the week between Christmas and New Year’s. (Our parents have 7 or 8 time share condominiums.) This year (2010) 57 of 69 were able to make it. Judy’s parents are the ringleaders of the clan (seen in the bottom part of the above picture).
Why am I highlighting the family here? Judy’s parents do their best to lead the family in a true walk with the Lord. Consequently, there are many pastors, pastors’ wives, youth ministers, elders, deacons, teachers, and all of them are servants of God. It is a testimony and an encouragement to others that it is still possible to produce godly offspring, and have a truly committed family to Christ Jesus.
Be encouraged that your family can be a testimony for Christ in this dark world.

Judy is one of 7 sisters (the third, to be exact). At this point, counting parents, sisters and husbands, children, and grandchildren, there are 69 members. Two more will be added within the next 9 months.
