11 to 8

Well, there's nothing like posting a few days later than you planned, especially when it's one of those "date sensitive" posts.  I suppose one of the up-sides to a belated post is the opportunity to create an intriguing post title.  So, here's my post that was planned for June 8th.

June 8th was a big day.  Besides being the first day of Staff Training it was also my sister-in-law's birthday and Kelly's and my 8th anniversary.  Kelly and I have been together for 14 years.  Wow, that's almost half my lifetime.

Staff Training is going well... and the first day of camp is Sunday the 13th!  This week is the first of 10 straight weeks.

Speaking of camp - we are in need of a few PA licensed nurses for a week or two this summer.  As you can imagine this is a big need.  We would love to hear from you if you are a nurse or if someone you know is a nurse... (contact Ben at 570.663.2419)

If that is not enough, just to make things interesting... I am currently finishing up week 5 of 8 in a curriculum leadership course for my master's degree.  This course end at the beginning of July and then I have one more course to take this fall which will complete my master's degree from Baptist Bible Graduate School.  Going back to July, we are one month away from Natalie's 5th birthday and Dela's due date (July 14th).  Then there's our FREE week of Day Camp and our new 1 to 1 Shepherds Camp week in July too.

We are certainly looking forward to what God has in store, what He plans to teach us about who He is and how that changes us.  Please continue to praise God with us and pray for us here at Arrowhead.

Last but not least - here are two quotes I read on a friend's blog which were encouraging, convicting and heart-piercing:

Sam Storms
“We must never presume that God will grant us apart from prayer what he has ordained to grant us only by the means of prayer".
Charles Spurgeon
“The minister who does not earnestly pray over his work must surely be a vain and conceited man. He acts as if he thought himself sufficient of himself, and therefore needed not to appeal to God.”
