On the 14th of January, we filled our van up with young people and headed out toward Angeles National Forest for a hike!
We went to Ritter Ranch Loop......
Abigail , Lizette , Alejandra.
Hiking down the mountain side......
Caytlin, Kelly, Abigail and Lizette.

The weather was a little colder than we expected, so next time we will bring jackets! Hind sight is 20/20:)
It was a beautiful hike, though.

Afterwards all the young people were invited to Scott's for dinner and a sing

our food line
Scott made homemade chili and sausage with pasta,while the rest of us brought sides and desserts to share. Some of the young people brought our host some gifts. This apron was one of them. Afterwards Ashley played the piano for a time of singing, then Scott shared a little from the Word of God (The Holy Bible) and encouraged us that the ministry of waiting was something all Christians go through. It was really good.
But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Hebrews 13:16
We always enjoy being able to visit with the people that come on fellowship day.
I especially enjoyed the guest speaker this last Sunday. He talked about the significance of the judgement seat of Christ, and how Christians don't have to be afraid of the coming judgment because Jesus Christ has washed their sins away, so that before God they are found innocent.
Mom and Kelly were laughing at some funny pictures on the phone:)
In between the meetings the little kids and some of the young people usually play a game of basketball.
After the 2 o'clock address we invited everyone over to our house to have dinner and celebrate Ashley and Kelly's birthdays!
Here some of the young people talking and playing with Timothy in the front yard....
The trampoline is one of the best ways to get the energy out of US young ones;)
Here we have Scott talking to Evie, and at the far end Daniel and Angel are having an arm-wrestle.
Helping open a tough jar for Mom!
As is tradition at the Sebo house, we had a birthday video for Ashley, as well as Kelly!
Watching "The Princess Box"
Afterwards, the cake was brought out. This was a vanilla frosting, chocolate cake filled with butter crea! YUMMY!!!
Ashley and Kelly are three days apart and are both exactly 24 years old .
We are extremely blessed to have them both.
But godliness with contentment is great gain.
1 Timothy 6:6
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSHUA C. SEBO!!! We are so blessed to have had Joshua for eleven years. He is a great example of a hard worker to all of us. May God bless you Joshua and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace!
we had a bit of a photo-shoot for Joshua's birthday.
These pictures display his different personalities and characteristics. In this one it portrays
his intellectual side.
This is his loving and thoughtful side ;)
Here Daniel is decorating the cake
Ashley lighting the candles
SHHHHH!!! its time to sing to Joshua!
Singing to Joshua
I kind of like to picture him saying: "I knew I could do it!"
Joshua swooping down with precision at his slice of cake
Ooooow, gummy worms!
Evie eating her slice
I'm not actually sure what they are doing in this picture..... maybe doing a worm bump of sorts?
Everyone enjoyed the cake, even little Hannah Bella.
T'was a grand party that day, and we hope to celebrate many more birthday's together!
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.
Before we get started I would like to thank Ashley for editing and keeping up the blog for all this time. My name is Isaiah, and I will be the new editor for the Sebo family blog.
This last Sunday was "Fellowship Sunday" up at the Hemet Assembly.
Our family was invited down for the day by the Dominguez family (friends from Morning Star Camp) to enjoy a time with the brethren out there. Now for any of you that don't know what a fellowship Sunday is, it's a once a month event where the brothers from different assemblies come together and have a meeting as well as share a meal, followed by an afternoon meeting. After that, it is customary for one of the families to invite the people over to their home for dinner and games.
On this occasion the Dominguez family had us over.
This picture displays the people going through the "Buffet Style Line"
That nights menu was a personal favorite of mine. We had burritos with a note-worthy fruit punch!
After the meal there was a special time of conversations and stories, as well as games!
A few of the young people played Apples to Apples.
I believe Caytlin won this with ten cards!!!
Abigail Gooding reading a book to Hannah.
As well as games, Daniel lead a sing with a brother from Tijuana.
Here they are tuning up the guitars.
We enjoyed singing many songs such as: In God's Green Pastures, How Great Thou Art, and Seek Ye First.
Here, Joshua and Timothy are playing a friendly match of Battleship.
After the evening had run its course, it was time to say our good byes.
Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Psalm 133: 1
