But before I go into this week, I got to make a very special trip up to Fort Collins to see some of my favorite people - Caleb and Haley! It's incredible to me to be only a drive away from both Fort Collins and Denver. This is a new concept to me, and I'm grateful.
Thank you, Caleb and Haley, for having me this weekend. You have no idea how much my heart was filled up.
We hiked up Horsetooth Mountain on Saturday, which was meaningful after only seeing it from a distance when visiting Fort Collins, and hearing about this particular hike from Haley, who grew up here until her family moved to Slovakia before she went to college. Even Sofie, their 5-month-old puppy came along for her first hike (she did great!).
The last bit of the day after the hike was spent at a wonderful coffee shop downtown called Harbinger. We both had similar things to work on: curriculum for 3-year-old's! Caleb and Haley were teaching Sunday school this morning, and I was prepping for this week's MTI program. I loved thinking about 3-year-old's together and hearing them talk about the Bible lesson they'd be teaching. It's not very often that I get to sit with someone and work on Children's Ministry things, so this was special!
Would you pray with me for this week's debrief program? That families would be refreshed in the Lord and that these kids would be able to share their stories and begin the transition too. This is new curriculum to me, so it's a sharp learning curve, but I'm looking forward to seeing what the Lord does this week. I am a little nervous, and I'll be dependent on Him to move among the families this week, and in my heart too as I debrief with the littlest of ones.
