Dear Pilgrim Pals: I just sent out the BRETT BUTLER prayer request to our e-mail list of 600 plus friends. I added the following personal update:
It's been a busy summer for Carol, me and the family! Matthew (11) spent a week at Camp Medeba, a Bible camp he has attended for four years now. He had a great time again! Nathan (10)spent a week at golf camp and then last week attended a half-day basketball camp at one of our local churches. Our granddaughter Victoria (15 tomorrow) has spent two weeks at Graphite Bible Camp counselling. Tamara (27), the young lady that we provide care for was away at the Christian Horizons camp for a week. Carol and I wish they could all be away at the same time so we could have a break. Maybe someday!
We took Matthew, Nathan and Victoria to Splash Lagoon, an indoor water park in Erie, PA in early July. While the rest of the family had fun in Erie, David drove down to Pittsburgh for an afternoon and evening to spend some time with Gabe & Kelly Gross (Milwaukee Brewers).
In between taking kids to camp and picking them up, Carol and I have been packing dozens (seems like hundreds) of boxes and taking them to a storage unit we have rented. Due to financial concerns we will have to sell our home so we've been taking steps to get this heart-breaking process in motion. Thanks for your prayers concerning this.
God is good and we continue to trust Him for a miracle in the days ahead. THANKS FOR STANDING WITH US.
David & Carol Fisher

Note: The part which I colored in red was SO difficult to write. Where is the line between stating your needs and begging? I've always been so afraid of appearing like a beggar that I've erred on the other side and failed to make our needs known.
Anyhow, please pray that God will use this update to move His people to pray and give. THANKS, my dear and beloved PILGRIM PALS.
