Headed To Nationals!!!!!

 We are in a huge state of excitement over here at the Bontrager home, as we have just lately learned that Joshua & Taylor have qualified (made it to the top 100 in their divisions)
 and will be headed to Tennessee in November for the
  National Bible Bee Competition!!!
Please join us in congratulating them by leaving a comment?!

Also please keep Josh & Taylor in your prayers as they have their work cut out for them for the next 2 1/2 months. 
They will both need to continue reviewing their 100 passages that they memorized for locals.
They will need to extensively study 1st & 2nd Timothy, in addition to preparing for the intense written tests.
With being in the senior division, Josh will need to memorize an additional 600 verses, & Taylor, in the primary division, will memorize an additional 300.

We love you guys! We're SO proud of your hard work!
