Headed to Nationals!

Early this morning, Joshua and a convoy from the Bontrager household left for Nashville, TN. Beginning tomorrow morning, Joshua will be competing at the National Bible Bee. Back in September, he competed in the local competitions and ranked 69th of the several thousand juniors who competed across the US. Now, along with the other 99 winners in the junior division, and 100 winners each in the senior and primary division, he is advancing to the finals!
You can read what he has to say about the Bible Bee and his experience on his bio here, or read the article printed in our local newspaper here.
Please join us in praying for Joshua tomorrow morning as he begins bright and early at 8:00am with the junior oral and written test rounds. Also please pray for our cousin, Thomas Youngmanand our friend from church, Marie Morris, who have also made it to Nationals and will be  competing in the senior division.
We are SO excited for you, Joshua, and proud of all your hard work and love for God's Word! We're praying for you!
"Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against Thee."
Psalm 119:11


  1. We will be praying for them!
    What a special thing to have in our hearts!
    Our love to all~
