The Pastor Challenge
The Pastor Challenge
The Assist Pregnancy Center's Walk-Run-Ride for Life is coming up in May and this year I am challenging myself in order to challenge all of you! I am challenging myself to ride a "Metric Century" (100 kilometers) in four hours, and if I can ride farther than I ever have at one time before, I challenge all of you to support me more than ever before. I set my goal this year at $5,000, and our team (Lutherans for Life) at $7,500! If I can do it, you can do it. Assist helps so many mothers and babies, and they are expanding their facility to help even more - and so need our help more than ever, especially coming out of this pandemic. So please help! CLICK HERE to go to my sponsor page to sponsor me, or you can sponsor anyone else who joins the team, or the team as a whole.
Will you step up to the challenge??

We had a good Christmas at the Peasant house. Church services were good, as was the special music. A relaxing afternoon opening presents. My wife and older daughter made a great dinner. Missed having Dad around, but got a little nap after the presents in his honor. :-) A couple of pictures . . .
What do you get the Pastor who has everything??
A yard of Twix! How awesome is that!

So my birthday was this week. To celebrate we went to Nationals Park, where they had a big holiday event called "Enchant." It had a light maze, skating rink, and Christmas market. It was a fun outing, though the food court was disappointing. Since we went on Tuesday night, some of the special food booths were not open. :-( But we still had a good time, even though it was cold and rainy. Some pictures (though they do not do the light justice) . . .
A view from the entrance, walking down to field level.
On the skating trail. I didn't skate too well this night. :-(
Looking up at the large tree in the center of the light maze.
(See first picture for some additional perspective how tall it was!)
Part of the light maze was to find all of Santa's reindeer. This is one of them. You can see Ma Peasant peeking from under the head, and daughter Peasant as the silhouette in front. They were quite large, as you can see!
Just another cool light picture, and to give you more perspective on the scale of it all!
Looking down at the field from the concourse level, where the Christmas market was.
