Day 19 - Jamestown, ND 8/31/2013 Another boring travel day. The nice part was, it cooled off today and it was overcast most of the day, made for a pleasant trip. We spied this cow on the side of the road, touted as "The Worlds Largest Holstein Cow". It was on a hillside and an advertisement for a bank, so we didn't try to stop and see it, just snapped the picture. We arrived in Jamestown without any problems. We needed to do some grocery shopping, so we went into town after we parked the trailer. We saw that the Worlds Largest Buffalo was...

Today is a rest day for us. We are camping in a county park with hugh slots in an elm and spruce grove.

Aug 7, 2013 - Trout Lake Camp we must move on

Dear Lord, thank you for this experience. This area is beautiful; enough of a hill rise that you are able to see the lakes in a distance. The camp has two campuses one for primary school and one for secondary. There is a beach area with pontoon boats, water craft to pull large tubes, kayak, paddle boards, and a swim area. In addition they have paintball, archery, crafts, horses, petting zoo, rife range, and most importantly Chapel with meaningful fun skits and devotion time. I would love to have my grandchildren attend this camp. We...

Aug 4, 2013 - Trout Lake Camp: new skills

Thank you God for the opportunity to learn new skills. (and at our age, praises for the continued ability to learn!) We made stakes to use for a concrete pour which Danny participated in.

Jul 28, 2013 - Trout Lake: project, last week with SOWERS

This week concluded 3 weeks of sharing with God's servants: Beth and Roger, Judy and Gerry, and Betsy and Tom. What a blessing to us to have worshipped, played, shared with them, and we grew in our spritual walk with the Lord. It is difficult to know if we will ever see them again, but memories will stay with us. We finished up the landscaping: put the landscape fabric down, Danny and Keleen put the irrigation lines in place, then we put the rest of the landscape rocks available down. The last of the week we spent working on cladding the...

Jul 21, 2013 - Trout Lake: Judy's song, raspberries

God is GOOD! On the 14th we went to church in Emily Lake to hear a gentleman sing who traveled at one time with Billy Graham at one time. Judy has a song she has written and asked if he knew a songwriter she could contact, he requested she send the song to him. Beth, Judy, and I spent the afternoon getting her song in print to send to him and videoing Judy singing her song. We could only get our emails to send the text, not a video. We started work on cladding the chapel windows with aluminum. We found out the dates of Sturgis Bike Week in...

Jul 21, 2013 - Trout Lake: landscaping, pontoon boat ride

Praises to our Lord and savior, we are learning on servanthood. We were pulled off aluminum cladding of chapel to landscaping. There were over 30 plants to be put into the ground. They have some things in the ground we don't have in Fl., ROCKS! I think more rocks than soil. We had to dig out the holes, refill with good dirt, and plant. Several holes required water to be soaked over night in order to get them large enough. John wants the holes 15 in deep and 28 in wide. We were so blessed to have help every day, Don a long time volunteer...
