Week #7 was our last week for the summer tour! Those last few days were a little intense for all of us as anticipation for home continued to grow. =)
Our trust tech guy, Carson, fixing a malfunctioning monitor.
We had a wonderful time seeing at this beautiful camp for the third time in three years! Every time we go back we just love it more and more. It reminds us of the camp meetings in the old movie “Sheffey”!
Whenever we have a chance to spread out outside of the bus, we jump for it. Meals get a little tight in there!
One night when we had off, Liz + Dad planned a special family activity for everyone. There was lots of laughter, exercise, and competition involved. =)
It’s the story of life on the road. Sometimes that wifi signal is just all-elusive and so whenever you find it, you take advantage of the moment. Even if it means sitting as close to the church as possible because the church is locked and it is way late but the signal reaches just outside and PRAISE THE LORD the church wifi is unlocked. =)
A highlight for our week was making tortillas with friends in Ontario. They run a bakery as a family business and it is quite the production! They graciously allowed us to help them make tortillas, and we enjoyed it so much!

Time to run the balls through the press!
Here they come, out the other side….
…and here they are a little further down the line, freshly baked!
At the end of the line, they finally come out of the huge, multi-layer cooling rack, where we grabbed them and stacked them in stacks of ten….
…and then the stacks of ten were put in bags and sealed.
Rebecca + Elizabeth got to put the labels on the finished bags.
Group music practice time!

Our last Canadian concert of the tour!
It was a pretty exciting thing when we crossed into the USA!! It was so good to be back in our home country again!
Our very last concert of the tour was in Rushville, NY, just about thirty minutes from the community where mom grew up.
We had a wonderful time there; a great crowd of community came out to the camp that was hosting the concert, and it was such a special evening!
Loved spending time with these sweet friends!
We are SO WELL FED on tour!
Just one word. YUMMY.
Our cases are definitely getting battered + beat up by constant use and wear + tear! =)
We have recently added an acapella version of the Doxology to end out our concerts.
Is this really the end of the summer tour series?! Thank-you to all of you who have followed along + kept our family in your prayers as we were out on tour this summer! (and yes, we safely arrived home @ 4am yesterday morning! SO GOOD to be back!)
Thank-you also to all the dear saints who gave so sacrificially in so many ways, to bless our family. We can never thank-you adequately but our hearts are full and we are grateful for each one of the dear people the Lord has brought across our paths this summer!
Note: we ended out our tour with a weekend off, spent with the Stoltzfus side (moms family) in NY. We have so many pictures + memories from that time, however, that we will be doing a separate post about that later. Stay tuned!
“He sent redemption unto His people; He hath commanded His covenant forever: holy and reverend is His name. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do His commandments: His praise endureth forever.”
