We can hardly even believe that we’ve been here for almost a year – it’s been quite a 10 months & we’ve been learning so much along the way.
Bill + the girls are thrilled that school is nearly out – 14 more days and counting! We’re so excited about this upcoming summer: a highly anticipated trip to VA, two amazing groups flying out to the Reservation to serve the community, one of Grace’s best friends + her family coming to visit, participation in a summer youth camp, etc.
Thank you for praying for it all!
East Coast Friends – we are looking forward to connecting with you Thursday evening, May 30th with an update of our life on the Reservation! Doors open at 6pm, and we’ll start things off at 6:30pm. Thank you to those who have offered to help with refreshments – you’re the best of the best. If you’d like to help out, let Grace know. We can’t wait!
We hosted our first Campout at the end of April. We had 21 middle + high school students attend the event. A hike to Hole in the Rock, a “scary” movie, s’mores, a message from Bill, and paintball was a great time for everyone. We were dead exhasuted afterwards, but it was well worth it!
Thank you for continuing to pray for Realife: a youth group we started for Hidden Springs + the surrounding communities. The number of students can vary from 5-15 on any given night. Our hope is that each heart there – no matter if it’s one or one thousand – knows that God loves them & that we love them, too.
