I won't be posting for at least 3 weeks.
This week is Beach Camp - our annual youth camp in Galveston, TX. I have sophomores.
Next week, I leave for vacation with my family - Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Phoenix (and everywhere in between).
Then, we'll fly straight from Phoenix to St. Louis, where we'll spend the week with our nieces (one of whom I haven't met yet!) and then take the train to KC to see Roommates.
We'll fly home from KC on July 6th. Over a period of 21 days, I'll sleep in 11 different beds.
*I get really exhausted when I overextend myself and time spent with friends and family isn't exactly "quality time" when I'm that way, so pray that I make the most of it.
*Pray I don't get sunburned or any other injury that would marr the trips.
*Pray that I get along with everybody.
*Pray the traveling goes smoothly. I'll be on 3 different planes, a train, a rental van, taxis, shuttles, friends' cars, families' cars, etc.
*Pray for all the ministry that will be done directly (camp) and indirectly (vacation)
*Pray that Andrew and I will get along (see 1st bullet)
*Pray for my sister's wedding (in Vegas - no joke)
*Pray that my camera battery will not give out at extremely important moments
*Pray that my nieces will shower me with love and not ignore me (like the older one did last time!)
*Pray that kitty is okay for 3 weeks without us and that we're ok 3 weeks without her.
*Pray that I thoroughly enjoy myself and recognize God's blessing in my life this summer.
