Shout-outs!

Greetings to all our readers! While we wrap up our fourth day of camp, we wanted to do some shout-outs from the students. This is a way for them to reach out to friends and family back home, and for you to “hear their voices” through a short message. 
Side note: WOW are these kids amazing. They are blowing the minds of all the leaders and making our hearts swell— we feel super blessed to be a part of this team! 

Hey guys!!! We are having so much fun here!!!! Miss you guys, can’t wait to see you Monday!!!! Love you, see you soon.  (Hug the puppers for me.)    -Alex

  1. So good to hear from you, Jon! I am glad you’re having a great time in Alaska. Jenna and I are planning a “Welcome Home” dinner for you! Sending love! See you soon!

  2. Love the shout outs! And so glad to hear that so many of you are having a great and awesome experience. It’s much more than the amazing scenery you are in. What a cool and unique opportunity you each have with this trip, stretching yourselves in ways you hadn’t in the past and discovering new things in yourselves and through the others on the team. Take these experiences back home with you use them for His glory and to keep growing in your faith. Let your lights shine bright, (maybe hard to see that there when it doesn’t get dark this time of year.)

    Addie-sorry to report there will be no puppy upon your return BUT I have the ‘green light’ go ahead in writing from your dad to begin the search so that’s a step in the right direction.

    Lots of love peanut!

  4. Hey Jon, glad to hear you are having a great time. It is great to hear from you – your post sounds very “Jon” to me. We miss you too back home and am looking forward to seeing you soon. Don’t worry, we are doing lots of your least favorite things like dinner at Dumpling Haus and kid movies, we’ll save the good stuff till you are back :). Love you!
    Jenna says “The bigger tadpole is now a frog – we released it tonight, one down and one to go! I hope the small tadpole waits until you are back so we can release it together. I’m glad you are having a great trip! Love you, miss you.”

  13. Hi Noah!
    I miss you and need to tell you that you can NOT stay in Alaska! Who will pet my ears and play frisbee with me? I would miss you making fun of my quirkyness! So do not stay.
    Also, I am afraid of frogs also. 😉
    Love, Mac
