Traditional drumming

I'll post more from our weekend later, but for now, here's what Traditional drumming looks like. 
I suppose if they were in a competition or something they may wear more traditional clothing, but this was just a little performance after the Pathways to Healing conference.
I'm going to say right up front that I don't know enough about traditional drumming to go into detail, but I do know that some Christians on the island disagree with it. I'm not showing this to say what I believe or don't believe, because like I said, I don't know enough, but I thought y'all would enjoy seeing what some people in Moose Factory take part in.

High Five for Friday

Hey y'all! 
I hope you have had a great week!
After such a fun and filled weekend, this week felt pretty slow and empty.
I'm still struggling with having extra time on my hands during the day, but I really believe the Lord has us in this special and unique situation for a reason!
Maybe the next place the Lord takes us will be the busiest lifestyle ever and He wants us to rest now! :)
Who knows!


1: So yesterday was our last day of Thankful Thursday for Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts! Let's just forget about the part where I didn't post. Whoops. But the whole experience, reading that book and doing it alongside the other 4 ladies was all really awesome! I gained so much from it and would definitely recommend it!

2: This cutie pie of a husband took out the skidoo earlier this week! Y'all, it is cold. If I haven't made that point enough the last couple of weeks. He comes home to me with frost all over his adorable self. Seriously though, frost bite is something you have to worry about in these temps so he has to cover everything!

3: We made quesadillas a couple times this week. I forgot how easy and delicious they are! And topped with sour cream, cheese and cilantro, perfect! 


4: I made this headband yesterday! It was super fun and easy! I totally love crocheting. 


5: Today is the day that Pathways to Healing starts!! Joshua goes on at 1:00 PM EST. He also speaks tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 again! We would so appreciate your prayers for this conference. We so hope that the people of Moose Factory and those that come from up the coast would realize that there is only ONE true PATHWAY to healing, and that's Jesus! There will also be traditional/nativist speakers as well, so pray that the Truth found in Jesus Christ would captivate the hearts of those listening! Thanks sooo much!!! 

I hope y'all have a great weekend! I'm doing the conference all day today and tomorrow and then a sleepover with a bunch of young girls tomorrow night!
