January seemed to go by really quickly, so did February. Here are some updates on what has been going on in our life recently.
My big project at camp right now is getting online registration up and going. My Dad has been doing a lot of the backend programming for it, and I have been working on the interface. There is a lot of work still to do, but hopefully we will get it going soon. We are getting lots of registrations for camp, and are actually ahead of last year, so its looking like it will be a big summer!
Last week Beth and I got to go to our CCCA sectional (CCCA is an organization that works to support Christian Camping). It was really good to get to meet people from some other camps and see what they are doing, share ideas, and get away for a while. The conference was at Shepard of the Ozarks, which is a camp my youth group used to go to for retreats. This time around a bunch of us played Sardines one night in the lodge…it was kind of cool to go back to a place and do a lot of the same things with a whole new group of people.
I got to go to Colorado a couple weeks ago. A bunch of us from the Ranch went up and spent a week skiing, hiking, hanging out…it is never a bad thing to get to spend a week or so in God’s creation of the mountains. I tried to snowboard…it was a good challenge to say the least! I spent more time on the ground then actually snowboarding, but it was fun to give it a try. The best day was probably a day of snowshoeing, it’s really just hiking, but the snow adds a very unique element that is a lot of fun. I also got to go see my brother for a day or so. He is doing well…teaching coaching, getting ready to go back to school. We went to the Denver Art Museum which was amazing. For starters the building is clad in titanium, so that’s a good start, and it is full of amazing art, if you are ever in the area I would recommend it. A few snapshots from around Denver:
That’s probably about enough life update for now…there are a few things that we would be blessed if you would pray for us about:
- Beth’s continued transition in a new job and practicum for school. Particularity for wisdom as she counsels people, and for growth in her skills as she gains experience.
- For our community group as we learn how to live out our faith as a group of believers, and that we would glorify God in the world around us.
- I am having some trouble with an old back injury and am starting the process of seeing doctors, getting MRIs etc, I want wise doctors who will give good advice as I try to understand what is going on in my physical body.
