Yesterday afternoon, I dropped off the rest of the family at this year’s MK Camp. Today, the older MKs, including C & D, are enjoying the opportunity to drop off a perfectly good cliff in a rappelling outing. They’re in good hands as our co-worker Brock has many years of experience, topped by his mentor and the youth speaker for the week who not only grew up rappelling, but is a world-class mountain climber. C&D have never done this before, other than a couple of climbing wall experiences, so this should be a great experience for them. Hopefully, Dayton will not be too scared of the height once he sees it first-hand. He can opt out, but hopefully, he’ll do it. If any photos show up by next week, I’ll share them.
I couldn’t stay because I need to get a lot of things done with my hermeneutics class and preparation for Sunday. This Sunday, the house church will be celebrating our first-ever baby dedication. I need to do a lot of preparation as the families of both parents will be here for the occasion. The family on one side is completely unsaved and the family on the other side is probably all saved. So, we’re looking forward to not only dedicating a baby to the Lord, but to a presentation of the Gospel to some who are likely confused about what that really is.
We’d appreciate your prayers for the MK Camp and the safety of everyone today, for my studies and preparation for the weekend, and for the Gospel presentation this Sunday to be clear and for the Holy Spirit to work powerfully in the hearts of the lost who will be hearing the Word, and in our hearts as members of the church and family of God that we’ll take to heart our responsibilities to be spiritual mentors and shepherds for our children.
