Today, the LBH team arrived in Wisconsin’s beautiful capital city and are beginning to settle in in preparation for week one of Love Begins Here. Each day of planning gets us that much more excited for the upcoming retreats. We all cannot wait for the moment when everyone will show up and our many activities (work, prayer, and fun) can begin!
Making us even more excited was the fact that this afternoon we got to meet with members of the family whose home we will be working on this coming week. We got to visit, walk around a bit, and visualize some of the projects that we will be starting out with in just a little under a week. And I’ve got to tell you, the whole time we talked I just wanted to start right in. It is going to be so much fun and so very meaningful! The family is absolutely awesome: so much love and all beautiful smiles. It warms my heart to think that we’ll be able to help them in the midst of their needs. Love truly will begin here!
In other news, Gina has continued her Bananagrams victories and is currently holding first place, yet Lindsay is starting to make a move for the top spot. You’ll just have to stay tuned to see who’ll have the crown at week’s end. Finally, us guys got a point just this evening, when Michael proved himself capable with a strong win right before dinner. Yes! I, on the other hand, remain winless, and assume it will remain that way. (I guess, that’s what happens when you go to college for engineering and immerse yourself in numbers all day: you somehow forget about words.)
Anyhow, thanks again for the prayers. Keep ’em coming! And keep getting ready for three wonderful weeks of service right here at home in the Diocese of Madison!
Peace & Love!
