A Parachute Adventure

It was kind of a late birthday present for me...
Grams and Papa purchased some parachutes from Voice of the Martyrs, and we spent last night putting them together.

Sewing the ribbon onto the parachute

Rebekah and Papa cutting ribbon

After we made the parachutes, we had a dinner of spaghetti and garlic bread
We watched Pilgrims Progress, had some root beer floats, (though it was snowy outside), then went to bed. :P

This morning we got up, ate breakfast, and hit the road, for the three hour ride to Voice of the Martyrs US Headquarters in Bartlesville, Oklahoma

Here is part of the museum in the "Wurmbrand Center"

Richard Wurmbrand's chair and desk, with Bibles, and other books of his


An Indian pastor's bicycle 

This pretty much speaks for itself. This Bible belonged to a woman in Laos.

Sorry for the overexposure...my camera was acting weird.


We went to the operations center to hand-deliver the parachutes.

Outside of the operations center, this is the picture I got of the Wurmbrand Center 
Beautiful, isn't it?

"The Pink Panther" :)

The plane they used to use to drop the parachutes over Colombia 

Grams, Hannah, Rebekah, Jack (the dog), Daniel, and me.

Well, I'm hoping to go back very soon with a group from my church to volunteer. That would be AWESOME!

  1. This is really cool! Especially because I've been there! =D
    A couple families from our church stayed there a week and did volunteer work. (like shrink wrapping books)
    We're hoping to go back in August. =) It's really an eye-opener working there.
