Well, mostly I just posted the video in the previous post to give you something to watch when you check my blogspot to see that, yet again, I had failed to update! I think I’ve finally caught up on my sleep. Catching up on work is a different story–but pretty soon the trip will no longer be a valid excuse!
As you could tell, if you check the Youth Blog, the trip was a huge success. We had very few problems, perfect weather, kids who were mostly on their best behavior (although I did have to issue a couple of extra chores during the week), and a lot of fun. I’m grateful that we made it back in one piece and that Pete and Carol’s house is no worse for the wear.
This week brings some new challenges as I start to plan the summer 2007 high school mission trip to Ontario, Canada. Pray for wisdom and that I won’t make any snap decisions! Also, this Sunday we have a “Blessing of the Hands” service where people will think about where they will spend their time, talent, and treasure in the coming year.
I have a meeting in a few minutes, but I just wanted to check in and say hi!
