The last couple of months have been increasingly busy for us. We returned home in May and since then have been busy getting ready for another summer of Off The Grid. We are running four weekends again this summer and our first program starts Friday! Registration is filling up fairly quickly and it is exciting to see where people are coming from and how they heard about the program. We always look forward to meeting those that come and hearing their stories.
Pete is incredibly busy lately and to be honest he is stretched pretty thin at the moment and could definitely use some prayer for stamina to make it through these next few weeks. An NTM couple from Florida have joined our staff for the summer and we’re quite excited to have them here. She will be overseeing the cooking side of things and he’ll be working on the operations side of things. It’s so interesting each year to see our staff positions fill. It has been so different each time.
This is our fifth summer since we first started the program. We have been so encouraged by the positive feedback we’ve received each summer and it’s so exciting to see how the weekend impacts lives. This year Emanate (formerly Missionary Training Centre) has its first student family that are here and were challenged through Off The Grid. We thank God for how He is building His church! We will keep you posted as the summer goes along.
