This is the first time in a week that I’ve been able to check my email and after looking at my inbox and the 300 emails, I decided I’d rather type out a quick post. We made it to Minnesota and are at the camp right now (thank God they have an open computer). We’ve shared a bit of our story a couple times and have more to share later in the week. The coolest thing is that Lora and I are seeing a number of the kids that we were camp counselors for 10 years ago. Not only that, they are now counselors themselves. It’s just showing me that God is faithful to complete the work he began.
I’ll fill in more of the details of this adventure story at a later time but let me just say that on our way here we got caught outside on a trail in a hailstorm! Yes, not just a soaking thunderstorm, but in a hailstorm. And whether you believe me or not (I wouldn’t if I hadn’t been there) it hailed for nearly 40 minutes straight and some places had accumulation of almost a foot! It’s quite a story. Check back in a week or so and I should have it detailed for you.
One other thing. I checked in with Claude and his dad Bobby is in the very last stages of life. Nurses have told Claude that today may be his last. Please pray for Claude and Sheila as well as Claude’s family. This isn’t an unexpected event, but the prolonging of it is making it more difficult. He could use the prayers and you could probably use the practice.
