The day continues....

While Jeff and Daniel were at the doctor's office, the road staff children at the camp and our Emily were raising money to pay for the stitches!! They did this without our permission, but they did have their parents permission. Most everyone around here knows that we do not have insurance that would cover this. Therefore this whole thing would be coming out of our pocket. To raise the money, the children had a lemonade stand and I have heard that they just went around to the team members and asked for donations. They apparently didn't miss anyone. I was told that they even went to the camp staff houses and asked for contributions. The more I think about this the more embarrassed I get, but we are VERY grateful for all that was given. I cried so hard when they brought the money to us. I hugged everyone of the children!! I have posted the grand total under the picture of all those sweet children.


You read that right! Two hundred thirty-five dollars and fifty cents! They raised this in about 3 hours! Praise the Lord his stitches are now paid for!!

Where's our pancakes? We've spent 6 weeks eating cereal for breakfast, so seeing that yummy stack of pancakes made me hungry.

Sorry to hear about Daniel needed shots and stitches but blessed to hear how God provided the resources through the love of everyone there.

Coach Maxwell got to play soccer yesterday. The men get together every Sunday afternoon for a game. It's like the Olympics- as there are many nations represented. Needless to say, the U.S. can learn
many skills from the other countries!
Love to all of you!
