DAY 12 (52 Days)

RETURNS AND WARRANTIES!  When you work in an outdoor ministry with lots of fun little gadgets like shower water heaters, trekking poles, headlamps, shock proof cameras and tents used by 100's of students and adults, things are bound to break and they do!  So as they do we mark each item with an orange tag and set it aside to contact the manufacture in regards to the warranties so we can have them repaired, returned or replaced, but with our limited amount of time while running events and traveling these kinds of things have been placed on the back burner over the months and years. However today that all began to change as our new employee Jessica Butler began to tackle these items with phone calls and research on how to handle each item!  So today we celebrate the fact that we're getting these things done!  Bye bye orange tags, we have a new employee in town!

On another note Doug has been working tirelessly on getting ready for back to back retreats this weekend as he also continues to forge ahead with the 52 Day Campaign. It's not easy for him to walk away with such a big project going on, but while he's off with our weekend volunteers running these great events, Jessica and myself will continue to chip away and make progress with the walls of GTD and trust in God's help and favor to do the work that needs to get done.
