Colorado Adventures. It's all so Hurried in this Place that Knows no Hurry.

Colorado. I've got a short window of internet access. So, here's a quick update on the last week plus. The trip out here was full of interstates and friends and family. It was a hard goodbye to Atlanta as suspected. Memphis welcomed me with open arms as it always does. The Shaw household was lovely, and it was great spending a bit of time with them. Then it was home for a few days, spent with my arms around my family. It was a beautiful time. Then, I said goodbye to baby Omar and headed west. A night in Kansas City with Emanuel and company, then it was off to a 11 hour drive against the most boring stretch of highway that America has to offer. I spent a night with the Sgarlatas in beautiful Buena Vista, CO. Then, woke up and drove the last stretch to Sky Ranch Ute Trail. The place is beautifully nestled into a mountain valley, the San Juans towering three hundred and sixty degrees around. There, we dove head first into a long process of getting to know the rest of the 40 or so other staff. It's been a week of hard work and relationship building, and it looks to be a busy yet productive summer. I'm excited about what is going to happen, and will update more as soon as I find the internet again. As for now, I'm being kicked out of the coffee shop I'm bumming internet from. So, take care of yourselves and I'll update again soon. God Bless.

Do you know just how excited I am for you?! We don't even know each other that well but I know the place oh so well. Very special. Can't wait to pray for you this summer and hear about all God does in and through you! Soak up every minute. As I was once encouraged when I worked there in 2003, I'll encourage you with the same: Worship the Lord with reckless abandonment. God bless you, brother!
