We have been visiting my sister’s family in Monterey, California and we took the opportunity to have Kevin Shutterbug interview my niece Emma. You can also learn a little about Kevin’s favorite food in this installment!

We had a great time bringing our RV to the annual Kidology get together at the Children’s Pastors Conference in San Diego this past week. What a blast it was to park it right by the bridge going from the Town and Country Resort to where all the local restaurants were located, watching tons of CPC attendees and vendors pass by and wave.
Of course several people stopped by to say hi, meet us and take a tour of our RV. CM Connect founder Michael Chanley even took the opportunity to hold our snake Sunset! Of course Sunset, our 4 foot albino ball python, was both a hit and a terror, depending on who you ask. Still I am sure he appreciated the chance to stretch and making it on Michael’s Facebook page!
We met several new friends and made some great contacts for possible future Kidology to Go dates. We also really enjoyed hanging out with a few of the other Kidology employees like Karl Bastian, Daniel Stec, Todd McKeever and Barney Kinard. Later I was able to help “work the booth” for Kidology in the vendor area and take a tour and see some of the other booths and meet up with some old friends like Dave Jamerson of Awana, Matt Guevara (who was once a kid in a Sunday School class I taught back in college), David Laflin and Byron Ragins from Cook Publishing.
The last night of the conference they invited us all to an advanced screening of an amazing movie called Courageous which is due out this fall in theaters. Courageous is made by the same company (really a church!) that produced Fireproof, and is even better than Fireproof was.
I couldn’t help but leave the auditorium that night with tears in my eyes.
All in all it was a very good conference and very encouraging to be around so many great Kidmins!
The Martin family recently visited Joshua Tree National Park near Palm Springs, California where Kevin Shutterbug spoke with Patsy about their visit to this park and the upcoming Children’s Pastor conference in San Diego where the Kidology to Go RV will be making a special guest appearance!!
Special thanks to One Way Street for letting The Martin family adopt Kevin during their travels!
We are excited to announce another Kidology to go has been booked for September 10, 2011 in Mattoon, Illinois. Children’s Pastor Brad Waggoner and the Mattoon United Methodist Church will be our hosts for this event.
Mattoon is in central Illinois, near Decatur. Churches near Champaign, Springfield, Peoria, Bloomington and Terre Haute, Indiana take special note of this date and begin making plans to attend this extremely affordable yet quality training event. Be sure to invite your entire volunteer staff! You can register for this Kidology to Go on Kidology.org or by going to this link.
If have any questions you can email Marty Martin at email@example.com or Pastor Brad Waggoner at Brad Waggoner at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get right back to you!
