I thank all of you for your love and prayers. After three glorious days (visiting places I’d never imagined I would) with my dear friend (and recent graduate) from seminary, the time has come to serve others at camp. It will make some of you nervous, but (just as the last three weeks could make someone nervous) I am thankful that God is already there…and I am merely catching up.
The past few days have introduced me to the challenges of Ramadan: no food or drink is served or to be publicly consumed between sunrise and sunset. That has posed a few challenges during daytime excursions this week! Thankfully, it ends on June 25th, so the challenge will be brief. I am thankful for the opportunity to continue to learn what life is like as a religious minority. Traveling through the regions I’m visiting this summer has already highlighted for me how very privileged we are in SO many ways in the US!
Please pray for health and safety for all who go to or are already at camp. Pray for those we will serve. I will update here as I am able.
