DRENCHED! .... DRYING OUT WITH FRIENDS =)


We got hit with rain on the last day of camp which means we had to break camp while the tents were still wet. Over the past 2 days we've been looking for breaks in the rain so that we could set things out to dry.

On Thursday Carson & I got just enough sunshine to lay all the rainflies out to dry on the asphalt parking lot of our gear cache. Then the rain started again.

We drove to Easley, SC to visit our friends Jason & Heather, and they graciously opened their home up as a large dryer for our tents & hammocks. They let us use a blower, heater, fan, hairdryer, 2 ladders, their vehicle, their garage, and their driveway to help dry it all out.

With another break in the rain we were able to knock it all out in about 4 or 5 hours.

Jason & Heather's home looked like Tent City LOL! We were blessed to get to spend some quality time with them at their new house.

We stayed the night at their house on Thursday night and dried everything out all day Friday before boarding our cheap Allegiant flights at 11pm to head home for a few weeks before our next set of Adventure Trips.

It's actually cheaper for us to fly back than it is to drive back or stay up there. It also allows me to get a lot of office work (& hopefully home renovations) done between events.

We are so thankful for and blessed to have amazing friends like Jason & Heather who help enable us & GTD to do what we do! We can't thank them enough!

MINISTRY IS A TEAM SPORT!

THE END IS JUST THE BEGINNING!


Our Adventure Trip with Fearless Student Ministry ended yesterday, but our prayer is that it's just the beginning of many great things in the lives of these fantastic young people!

We had so much fun, and instantly connected with this wonderful ministry and their leaders.

You can check out all the pictures on our online photo album and re-live this instant classic!

RAPPEL, HIKE, BLITZ BALL, LAKE SWIM, & PLENTY OF RAIN!

Our last full day with the awesome youth of FEARLESS STUDENT MINISTRY was full of rain, but it didn't dampen their spirits or turn their experience into a wet blanket =)

11 out of the 31 participants opted for the 5am wake up call for rock climbing & rappelling. We were trying to beat the rain. After an intense hike straight uphill we managed to complete the rappel before the rain started. We had a blast and the views were amazing, but unfortunately we weren't able to rock climb.

We met back up with the rest of the crew and enjoyed playing Blitz Ball and swimming in the nearby lake.

The youth bonded really well in just a few days. Although the rain may interfere with our plans, it actually forces people to become more creative and spend more time communicating... and that usually means building more relationship bonds.

Here are a few pics from our rappel including amazing mountain views!!

We love this group! The leadership is amazing and the kids are so much fun!
