1000 mph

Life continues to move at a blinding pace.

I spent last week in the Adirondacks with a group a middle school and high school folks rock climbing, conquering the ropes course and canoeing. It was pretty hard core. No bathrooms, no deodorant, no ipods. Everybody was challenged physically, mentally and spiritually. Concepts like choosing a christlike attitude were taught through our experiences away from the comforts of home. God showed off for us in some the nature that we got to enjoy. This was the view of Long Lake from our campsite the first night out in the canoes.

This week has been full of meetings and prep for next week's missions trip to Schuykill County PA. If you are the praying type please pray for our efforts to serve the poor, homeless, young and old of the this once great coal mining region.


Oh yeah...below is shot of Jake and I with our mohawks. It's become kind of a summer trip ritual. This year Jake wanted in on the action.

IMO, missions trips, camps, retreats with kids are draining. I'll pray that God equips you with strength to minister to the kids.

The few mission trips I've been on where I've been chaperoning students - - when I got home I first relaxed, then marvelled at how God had kept me physically and mentally strong the entire time. I'm sure he has in the past and will do the same for you this upcoming week.
