Wordless Wednesday - Indiana Deputation

The kids loved the house we stayed in while in Wanatah, Indiana with Crossroads Baptist Church.  There was a Jacuzzi tub big enough for all four kids to bathe at the same time!

Daddy found "Hungry, Hungry Hippos" game in the closet - the kids had fun with that - even the twins!

Nehemiah was fascinated with the washing machine all week.  Thankfully, once the door is locked, any buttons he pushed didn't do anything!

Pastor Andy Gaschke was the assistant pastor at Highlands Baptist Church shortly after we began attending there.  He and his wife Jenny helped in the youth group and with teen visitation on Wednesdays, so I had a good deal of interaction with them.  They moved to Indianapolis shortly before their first daughter Heidi was born.  Kenny and I stopped and stayed with them a couple of times en route to college.  We exchange Christmas cards every year, but it's been a long time since we were together. 
Heidi and Andrew were all about helping with the twins.  Andrew even wanted to eat next to Nehemiah!  Kiersten is about the same age as Elaine, and Will is the same age as Nolan.  Our kids loved playing in their backyard together, and they formed a fast friendship.  Every day Nolan asks if I remember his "boyfriends, Andrew and Will".  Will got to come play at the bounce house with us while the other kids were in school.
The Gaschke's are now church planting south of Indianapolis in Bloomington, IN (where IU is located).  The church is several years old and they are considering getting their own building.  We thoroughly enjoyed our visit with the Gaschke's and their church!
