UNLIMITED GLORY MINISTRIES
COVERED BRIDGE FESTIVAL 
WEEKEND CAMPING TRIP
 
 
 
 
 
 
Where does all this take place?
We camped at Shades State Park in Northern Parke County Indiana, and spent all day Saturday visiting Mansfield, IN
 
 
 
We set up our tents on Thursday evening, so when we got to camp on Friday afternoon, everything was waiting fo us..
 
All we had to do was light the fire, break out the marshmallows and
heat up the water for our hot chocolate.
..
Alice, Evan, Ken & Cyrus
 
After a great dinner of bratwurst cooked over the coals, it's time to sit around the campfire and enjoy an evening of fellowship and singing.
.
Ken, Adin, Jody, Terah, Evan, Jeremy, Cyrus, Ellen, Alice, Stephanie
 
After a cool evening (40 F degrees) we headed to Mansfield, IN
bright and early the next morning.

Background: Ellen & Jeremy
Foreground: Adin, Stephanie, Ken, Cyrus, Evan, Jody & Terah

Jeremy & Ellen (who got married in May and now live in St.Louis)
came in for the weekend.  Ellen's mom (Nancy) met us at the old grist mill in Mansfield.

Alice, Jeremy, Nancy & Ellen
 
 
Like the rest of the festival grounds, the food court is crowded, but the food is delicious.
.
It's kind of like 'Where's Waldo' only this is 'Where's Nancy?'
(Hint - she's near the middle of the picture)
 
It wouldn't be the Covered Bridge Festival without a covered
bridge, so here is the Mansfield Bridge.
..
 
Crossing the bridge to check out more vendors.
.
 
By late afternoon everyone is tired, so we head back to theMill to meet up with the rest of the group. 
.
 
Finally, a chance to sit down!
.
Jody & Alice
 
After a foil dinner, we enjoy another evening of fellowship around the campfire.

Sunday service was around the campfire.

Sunday night several members of the group slept out under the stars.
.
 
 
On Monday afternoon it was time to break camp and head back home.
(For Illinois students Monday was the Columbus Day holiday, so no one missed school)  
.
We definitely thanked the Lord both for the wonderful weather all weekend, and the refreshing time of fellowship we shared with everyone who was able to take part in this year's fall campout.
