Big Praise and Request s for CA and TX events

Well, Dale just shouted up from the new office in our basement that I should tell you all he has a BIG PRAISE that we were able to really rest last week. We took a 4 day trip to Moab, Utah (the off-roading capital of the world) with my parents (my Dad has a Jeep, too and he and my mom are great off-roading companions) and tent camped and enjoyed the outdoors. Here's how we do off-roading (notice the corgis and Dale's new license plate!).

Sunburned, but happy and rested we returned home to pick up where we left off with bills, emails, speaking events and writing. We were able to jump right in and I want to thank you for that ease. We were able to relax and we were able to return to our work with added enthusiasm.

This next week we'll be gearing up for another 2 week trip (we've realized this will be our 3rd 2 week trip this Spring and we don't think we'll be doing such intense, long trips again). This time we head out to Lake Tahoe area to speak for a Spiritual Emphasis week at Forest Lake Christian. Then we fly to San Antonio, Texas to speak for another Spiritual Emphasis week at Harvest Schools where we'll be speaking about C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and the way Lewis refreshes our understanding of who Jesus is. We'll be enjoying the premier of Prince Caspian with the teens that week as well.

In preparation we ask for
  • continued eagerness to finish the Chronicles of Narnia so they are fresh to share.
  • as the days will be long with the teens (classroom visitations, lunch impromptu meetings, dinners with new friends) please pray for us to stay healthy and build up strength to give to others.
  • we will be developing several new talks together, please pray for us to have creativity and work ability with one another (Dale and I have different styles of organizing our talks) so that our strengths are building up each.
Thank you for praying with us!
