When Life Hands You a Lemmon

Monday, June 18th, 2007

My internship here at Ao-Wa-Kiya seems to be drawing to a close as the busy summer approaches. As I think back on all the good and bad times the opportunity has afforded, I can’t help but be drawn to this phrase: Life really handed me a Lemmon. Three of them, actually. And no, it’s not […]

And it Wained… (3x)

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Boy it’s wet. It’s so wet, that it’s early afternoon here at camp, and I have nothing to do. We got all the inside stuff done, and all that’s left to do is… out there. We didn’t quit raking until hypothermia became a real possibility. I think we just want to be done with leaves, […]

Spring Break

Sunday, April 1st, 2007

Well, I’m heading up to camp in about 4 and a half hours… right after TJ’s birthday party. Then I’ll be flooring, raking and dumping leaves until my back falls off. But I have a feeling it’s gonna be a lot of fun, because there will be a lot of people there, and it’ll feel […]

Late October Update

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

I know, I know, it’s huge. This update is, in large, for my family and supporters, but the rest of you may learn something too. I’ll break it up to make it easier to browse.

Update… Right!

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

So I realize I’ve been neglecting nearly everyone in my life that’s not here in Michigan. So I figure the least I can do is offer you an update of what’s going on in my life (even though most of the people who read this are in Michigan…). Camp / Internship Yes, I’m still in […]

Quick update

Saturday, July 29th, 2006

I just decided to write a quick exciting update. Last week I was scheduled to be the assistant program director, but Pastor Bill (The program director and camp director) decided I was going to be the program director. It was a little crazy, but it was a good experience. Anyways, I gotta go. Busy, busy, […]

Ok, I’m going to try to update everyone that reads this on everything that’s happened in the past couple weeks, in as few words as possible. Life at camp is very busy, but for the most part, it’s a good busy. I am on maintenance this week, and I have decided I really like it. […]

Support and Finances

Wednesday, June 14th, 2006

Well, thanks to all of my wonderful supporters, I’m sittin’ pretty on finances right now. At my last report God had provided 1,230 dollars through people who donated. On top of that, I’m making 60 dollars per day from a camp that’s renting Ao-Wa-Kiya for two weeks. And my bank account was already sitting at […]

Camp is definitely getting hectic! Today was the first day I worked on a project by myself. I’m working on building new counselor beds. The current ones are definitely in need of replacement. It’s really cool being part of the designing and planning of camp stuff, even if it’s something as simple as how to […]

Settling in

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

Well, I’m starting to get in the swing of things here, and getting used to waking up at camp. Being an intern definitely makes it feel a little different. I have responsibilities… and, and… trust! It’s almost like they think I’m a mature adult!.. almost. 😉 My kitchen is a little bigger than the one […]
