The end of the Greyfriars Classical Academy school year also allowed us to get away a little as a family. We were able to spend a few days in Brevard at Scott's parent's house. Time with family and recreation in the mountains was refreshing, especially the trip to sliding rock! The water was freezing, as usually, but all the kids went down (except Joseph, of course!). I think Nathan won the prize for most trips down the rock into the frigid pool.
The middle of the following week, Scott was able to attend the Banner of Truth Ministers' Conference with his father. It was good to spend time with Dad, be encouraged by the conference speakers, and make new friends and become reacquainted with some old ones. And come back with a box of new books, of course!
We spent most of this past week as a family at the James Island Co. Park camping with the Trae Shepherd family from our church. The Shepherds are experienced campers and helped us "rookies" survive our first ever family camping trip. It was a blast! Even the 2:30 AM thunderstorm was sort of fun! It's not every night that you get to sleep with water dripping on your bed! But I think the time at Folly Beach and at the water park were probably the highlights for the kids.
We're looking forward, now, to settling into a more normal summer routine. Please pray with us as we continue to seek opportunities to share with congregations about the work in Peru. Please consider becoming both a prayer and financial partner with us yourself. Our greatest need is congregations and individuals that will commit to regularly pray for us and regularly give toward our financial support needs.
