It’s summertime, and the living is, well, relatively easy. It is very hot in Carolina, so a day in the 80s is something to look forward to. Maggie and the girls in the yard are doing wonderfully; this is their time of year, you know.
The benefit in Edmonton, Alberta turned out even better than expected. Those wonderful people raised over $160,000 for missions and Huldah Buntain has a project already lined up. If you would like to read more about this amazing lady and her organization, you may visit her website: www.buntain.org
One of my best friends who is a Master Gardener came for a visit last week to help us redo the island and dry creek bed in our front yard. She designed it, then helped John and me purchase trees and shrubs, dig holes, and plant, water, feed, and mulch the strip of land. Every day it seemed to grow bigger. We are still waiting for a couple of matching shrubs before it will be complete but it is looking great and it holds great memories of her visit. She is one of those rare people who leave behind more than they take; we speak of her words and her stories long after she has flown back to Louisiana.
We are gearing up for Vacation Bible School this week, and, once again, my sister, mom, and I will be serving food to the more than 200 children who attend nightly. It is one of the things to which I most look forward.
Have a great, safe summer. We will be in touch next month.
We love you!!
