Pictures of our group at Surge 2006

Our kids played lots of card games. Mostly Egyptian Rat Screw, Kings in the corner and Combs (like spoons but with combs). When I fell asleep, I think they even slipped in some games of Texas Hold'em. They also helped me construct a cross with 2 sticks and electrical tape. The Boy Scouts would have been proud. We also did a high and low ropes' course. Everyone successfully climbed to the top tower in one fashion or another and then took the zip line down for a little fun. We went boating, jet skiing, had a great time on huge inflatables in a little bay of the lake, and spent some time swimming in a pool and the lake. We had sessions every night, quiet times every morning, competitions, and late night adventures. surge 2006 was awesome!

Ashley, Pierce, Anthony, Brian and Dustin . . . 5 amazing junior high students.

A special thanks to Valley Church for hosting and doing so much work. Also, it was a delight to worship with Westchester and Johnston E-Free churches.

God is great, God is good.

I need to get to my sermon prep for the week. My senior pastor is on a vacation with his son (kayaking in Canada). He left me some work to do. Pray that I can get all this done, keep remodeling the kitchen with my dear wife, and work a bit on my new seminary class.

Did I mention that students are awesome!!
