Please Pray

Between cleaning out the kitchen, getting my car fixed, and getting ready to be with four other board members for the next two days, I have had a very full day. I feel like central command coordinating and overseeing the movements of four people through the Northwest. In fact, when I'm talking to one of their hosts, I have to take a moment and think of who they're hosting, what that person's itinerary is, and then I can answer their question, help them, or coordinate pick ups and drop offs. Assuming I have all my ducks in a row, I am looking forward to spending time with them.

Tomorrow I am giving the four of them (John, Emma, Angelina, and Harriet) a personal tour of the seminary, then we are going to the tulip festival in Woodburn, and then taking the five mile hike through Silver Creek Falls. I have promised myself to hold back on the picture taking. I'll take pictures of my friends though I am sure I will sneak in a couple of my own of the waterfalls and trees when I'm not looking. Taking lots of pictures on hikes is fun when you're with others who do the same but it can also extend the time the hike takes by a lot and I don't want to do that. Besides, Silver Creek Falls is my most photographed hike already.

In the evening, most of us are joining Marge Abbot for dinner then I'm staying where Harriet and Angelina are for the night before going to Newberg the next day. Though I have been quite busy these last 2 1/2 days, it's been nice to get back to my normal life with work and dancing classes before going back with them for two more days. I have needed this time to see myself and to just be by myself and with God.

If you would, please pray for me. The car is fixed and I would REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY like it to stay that way as I drive them around the Willamette Valley. If the car could stay in working order while I drive these next few days, I would absolutely love that. Thank you for praying. I will be praying too.

Dear Sarah

Hope you all have a really good time together! I'll be thinking of you, praying for your car and sending you (to use a phrase I learned in Oregon) travelling mercies.

Thank you Gil! I sure appreciate it. I'll try posting tonight to tell everyone how it went. Hopefully, a fire exstinguisher will not be involved though I did find one in the trunk of the car. :o)
