First time to water ski on our lake

One of the cool things about the lake house we’re renting is that half of the other houses on our lake are owned by people in our church. Dana and I don’t have any big water toys, but most of them do. Yesterday was such a nice sunny day that our neighbors took me, Dana and Katelin, my 13-year old sister-in-law, out on the lake to have some fun. It was Katelin’s first time out on a motor boat and first time to do any type of water sports, so her eyes were either wide with terror or wide with excitement the whole time.

Every Sunday throughout the summer my youth group is doing an event called “Wake ‘n Ski” where we take kids out water skiing, tubing, knee boarding and wake boarding, stop for a cookout and an evangelistic message, and then maybe ski a little more or wrap up depending on how everyone feels. We pray many students will come to know Christ through this outreach.
