This summer I have already had some special family moments. For example, in my June 23rd-July 2nd Northshore Baptist Church's father-son mission trip I took with my 22-year-old son Adam, I have the memory of baptizing him in Lake Nicaragua. We did this in front of the dads and sons from our church and from the village of Los Cedros who joined us for our father-son conference. This landmark event stands out in my mind as well as the humorous moment that occurred the night before when I had just finished my first talk to the fathers and sons through a translator. Seeking some feedback on the talk from Adam, he proceeded to give me SEVERAL suggestions. When I indicated to him that I thought he was being a little harsh in his critique of the first time I have ever spoken through a translator, he attempted to encourage me by saying, "That's okay, dad, I suck at public speaking too." Thanks, Adam, I feel much better now! So what about YOU? Can you recall a special family memory from your summer so far or maybe something funny that happened to your family? If not, then maybe you need to go out and make some!
Please leave some special stories about your summer? We as fathers need to hear how other fathers are spending time with family this summer.
