My two weeks at Elim Lodge was an incredible experience for me! As you know, coming back to the "real world" posed some re-entry problems. It was like culture shock. Now, after several days, I'm beginning to get my equilibrium. Another 2 1/2 weeks and I'll be back there again.
Here's an update:
We are gradually getting settled in our new place. It's been an extremely traumatic experience but things are starting to come together...and fall apart...
We've been experiencing problems with our well and our water. Our next door neighbour has been a huge help to us but now we need to call in a well drilling expert and get some expensive work done. We've got sand in our water and it's clogging up our filtering system.
All four of the young people who live here are going to camp this summer at one time or another.
Victoria, our almost 16 year old granddaughter is counseling at a Christian camp (Graphite Bible Camp) this week and next. She will be going on a Missions Trip to Belize for the last 11 days of August.
Matthew, our 12 year old, has been going to a carpenter's workshop/camp this week and will be going for a week to Camp Medeba this month.
Nathan, our 11 year old, will be going to Joy Bible Camp.
Tamara, the 27 year old young lady who lives with us, will be going to the Christian Horizons camp for two weeks in August.
While I'm at Elim Lodge for the 2nd week in August most of my family will stay there with me. We're looking forward to that.
Please pray for our well/water problems. Pray that we'll find a solution that doesn't "soak" us financially.
Our van is in dire need of repair. Pray that we'll be able to get that looked after. Our good friend has already started working on it but he's finding lots of things that need fixing.
And finally, please pray that the Pilgrim will remain strong in His/my faith during these times of transition. THANK YOU!
In His great love,
