My favorite part was the Bontrager family singing group from Iowa. They are farmers, mom, dad, and the rest are brothers and sisters with one older brother home managing the farm. They travel six months out of the year to perform Christian bluegrass music, and do farming the rest of the year, which largely funds their ministry. It was so much fun to listen to their music! I bought a CD, and is one of my favorites. I attached one small videos I took; the others were too large to upload to blogspot. But it at least gives a little flavor for their music. As you can see in the pictures, my favorite one was when they played, "Glory to His Name" all bunched up together, playing their instrument and the one next to them! Even the little ones participated. The Bontrager family was so wonderful to watch, and I had the opportunity to talk to them afterwards, and they are as nice as they seem!
Thank you to Pastor John Hinson for hosting this fun and uplifting event. I hope you enjoy the pictures and video!
