It has been an ubber crazy last few days.

  • We led our second youth service trip. This time for four days with 21 students from Orange City. The weather played a factor with a number of our projects but we had a blast.
  • Kate’s brother got ambulanced to Rochester, MN after contracting lime disease. I’m happy to report that after 3 days in the hospital the Sloan family was able to leave on their family vacation.
  • We have been doing some more home projects like painting, hanging pictures (with the help of Chris) and reorganization. One of those places was my office but after a week I’m finally moved back in and feel more organized then ever.
  • Jenny’s dad had surgery today and her mom has a major surgery on Thursday.
  • Sunday was awesome! Kellee is doing an awesome job coming in and leading worship. Instead of me reading the scripture on Sunday we watched chapters 6 & 7 from the Visual Bible.
  • Saturday we had 15 people from thebridge show up at the homeless shelter for our Sheet “Rockin” Party. I’d say we cranked out close to a third of the project. Now we have 2/3 all the taping, mudding, and painting to go. Next Party is Thursday at 6:00pm.
  • One of our neighbors moved out on Sunday and our new neighbors moved in yesterday. We are really going to miss Steve & Ronelle.
  • Said goodbye to Sue from 1st Presbyterian today. She has taught me a ton in my first year in how to work with city and help those with the highest needs.

A few pics from the last few days.

Both Toby & Lydia are starting to sleep better. Now if we could just keep Toby on the bed.

This is me pointing to the people who actually know something about sheetrocking.
