Greetings, dear PILGRIM PALS! Thank you so much Bob (Passing-Thru) for your update on what's been happening lately with all of the PILGRIM PALS. You do an excellent job summarizing everything for us.
Just a brief note regarding Matthew and his goalie camp. After the first evening at camp Matthew felt it would be unwise to continue. He was so sore that evening that he could barely walk. Matthew leaves on Sunday for a week at Camp Medeba and didn't want his time at hockey camp to jeopardize his time at the Bible camp he has attended for the past three summers. I thought it was a very wise decision for a 11-year-old with challenges and Carol and I supported his choice fully.
On a minor note, you may recall that I mentioned problems I've been having with my laptop computer. It has been in the STAPLES store where I bought it for over a week now. They can't seem to get it so it won't log off when it's online. It stays online for a few minutes then goes off. There's a disconnect somewhere! Frustrating! That explains why I've had fewer posts this week. I sure hope that there's not a problem that can't be fixed. I've only had my computer for about 15 months and haven't had any issues until now.
This afternoon I attended the funeral of a dear friend, Ron Arnold. Ron and Jean have been special people in my life for over 35 years. Ron's family were instrumental in the formation of Elim Lodge on Pigeon Lake, the Christian Conference Centre where I serve on the board. My dad was very involved there for many years. The funeral was a celebration of Ron's life and there was a very real sense of God's presence in the room. Please pray for Jean as she begins a new chapter of life without her beloved husband.
Later this afternoon I drove to Graphite Bible Camp to pick up our granddaughter Victoria who had been counseling there throughout the week. She returns on Sunday for another week.
Carol was in Toronto this morning with Nathan for another consultation at The Hospital For Sick Children.
A very busy day indeed but the Lord was precious and He safeguarded all of us as we traveled many miles.
Have a blessed weekend, dear PILGRIM PALS! I love each one of you!
By the way, I'll post an update on Aaron Devine as soon as I receive one!
God is good!
David, the Pilgrim
