Blessings, Prayer Requests, and Schedule

Last Weeks’ Blessings:

  • Safely completing our first week of work at Living Waters camp in Danforth, ME. Thankfully, the weather allowed us to work, but it was a little hot!
  • Although the guys have not been able to work on the cottage due to the rain this week, they have been able to repair a few picnic tables that were in non-usable condition. The gals also were able to switch from exterior painting to interior painting when the rain came through.
  • Working well with our new SOWER friends. It is a huge blessing to have a group work so well together! 

You can pray: 

  • For our safety and health as we continue to our work at Living Waters Camp. 
  • That the weather would cooperate and allow us to get back to working on the cottage. This week has been quite rainy and the guys have not been able to do any further work on the cottage.
  • That our daughter Sarah will find the new job God has planned for her soon.
  • That we take advantage of the opportunities God places before us to serve and bless others around us, sharing God’s love however we can and wherever we are.

2022 08 01 Blessings:

  • Safely arriving at Living Waters Camp in Weston, ME! We had a wonderful, relaxed trip across four beautiful states (NY, VT, NH, and ME) with great weather, road conditions, and pleasant places to stay along the way.
  • Celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary in Bangor, ME. We put aside our strict whole-food, plant-based diet to try the famous Maine Lobster Roll dinner. Although it was delicious (a blessing), our systems no longer are able to tolerate that type of food! 😔 
  • No problems with our home-on-wheels while traveling except for the last morning before arriving at the camp. We were boondocking (no provided electricity, water, or sewer) and our water pump stopped working. Thankfully, we had only a short distance to travel and when we arrived, Bruce was able to quickly find that one of the electrical connections had come loose from the pump, probably from the rough roads. A quick 2-minute repair and we are back in business! 😄
  • Meeting our new SOWER friends. Except for Burneall and Ann, the other four couples with whom we will work this month are new SOWER friends!

You can pray: 

  • For our safety and health as we begin our work project(s) at Living Waters Camp. 
  • That our daughter Sarah can find a new job soon.
  • That we take advantage of the opportunities God places before us to serve and bless others around us, sharing God’s love however we can and wherever we are.

2022 07 25 Blessings:

  • Safely completing our work at the Lighthouse Christian Camp in Barker, NY.
  • Our travel plan came together nicely and we’ve had a wonderful trip thus far.
  • Safely exiting Lighthouse RV parking: as we made an extremely tight turn a tree branch became lodged between one of our solar panels and the roof. We are so thankful Katie spotted it in time and that it did no significant damage. We did however have to use a saw to remove it from under the panel!
  • Safety as we have traveled to eastern NY and the special blessing of staying in Lake Placid, NY for a few days!
  • Attending the Friday Shabbat dinner at Shoshanah School of Messianic Studies in Keeseville, NY while we overnighted at this SOWER project.
  • Beautiful travel weather thus far (and we pray it will continue).

  • Taking the opportunity to see our old home in Lakeview, NY where we lived from 1986-1988 while Bruce worked at the West Valley Demonstration Project site near Springville, NY. Its obvious the current owners are taking good care of it and the trees are huge!
  • Continued beautiful weather for working outside and enjoying God’s creation.
  • Bruce’s cut and bump on his forehead (from contact with the awning arm) is healing nicely!

You can pray: 

  • For our safety as we work our last week at Lighthouse Christian Camp this week. The men will again be working around heavy equipment and trenches. The ladies will be helping with the cabin/cottage cleaning and laundry from this past camp.
  • For wisdom as we prepare our travel plan to Living Waters Camp in Danforth, ME, about 900 miles from here. We look forward to taking it a bit slower and visiting a few sights along the way, but are not sure where to stop each day.
  • For wisdom for us as we seek His direction to know where to serve winter and spring of 2023.
  • That we take advantage of the opportunities God places before us to serve and bless others around us, however we can and wherever we are.
