Preparation for . . .

Yes, sometimes we do have a bit of time for some fun! With the group of younger, long term volunteers you just can't help but find those moments that are priceless! The photo on the right is one of those. Mark decided to give Monty a very big!! hug and it was hilarious!
The above photo is Allen and Dovie's son, Alex with Ciri in the canoe last night. I think Alex was quite happy when they got back to shore!
Today Joel and Janssen headed out for their road trip. We pray they will be safe and protected on each and every mile they cover!
The rest of us spent the day in preparation. Some also preparing to travel and some of us just trying to get tools and things in order. With teams in and out the tool situation can get out of control and sometimes you just have to stop and put it all back together. Today was one of those days and we got it done!
Once again we are also preparing for hurricane Dean. Even though the forecast doesn't have it coming to our immediate area every single person here knows that can change in a matter of minutes. We are all praying that it will just blow out and all will be safe. We would ask that all of you pray the same prayer and ask your churches to do the same. God parted the waters for the Israelites, calmed the storm for the disciples and did a multitude of miracles. He is still in the business of doing miracles. I think we shortchange ourselves by thinking He can't or isn't doing them anymore and blowing out a category 5 hurricane is impossible! "We don't have because we don't ask". Monty and I are asking and we pray you will do the same.
Until tomorrow . . . Susan and Monty
