One of the many blessings we have in life, is our friendship with the Bonks. They live about 50 miles north east of here in a place called Embarrass. John is the pastor at two churches in Ely and Babbitt, MN. With ten of their own children and four adopted children there is never a shortage of activity at their house (although two are out of the house and another is now in college).On Friday, July 20th we celebrated Linda's 50th birthday party. It was a great time of music, volleyball, swimming, fireworks and fun fellowship. Our kids match up in age with their kids just great and so we are so blessed when we get out to their house!
