On the Road in New Mexico and Arizona

On the road again.... spending LOTS of time together... family bonding... like you can only imagine... PRAY FOR US!
We're on our way to Arizona where I'm doing Cadre's Ministry Is Relationships training for youth workers there. We've stopped in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to visit our friends--the Schillings.
We climbed a couple of inactive volcanos... Bill III thought he was king of the hill.
I'm happy to report that we didn't lose a single person... though they enjoyed getting as close to the edge as possible.
And amazingly--no one complained about hiking a couple of miles. In fact, they LOVED it!
Emily (left and with sunglasses) celebrated her 16th birthday on this day...
Where's the flat land and corn fields? This ain't Illinois!!!!

Mentoring at Equip

2 Timothy 2:2 requires us to train, coach, mentor, and multiply disciples through relationshps. One of the guys I'm mentoring this year is Doug Rumbold, youth pastor of North Field Christian Fellowship in Tremont, IL. We were able to use a good part of Friday's Equip Conference in Peoria, IL, to do ministry through the Cadre booth at the conference. Doug wrote a blog entry about an encounter he had with our eight-year old Libby. Check it out by clicking HERE. And for more information about training to be a mentor, CLICK HERE.
