Good day to get stuff done—laundry, paperwork, journaling, whatever. The house is command central, but things are pretty quiet and casual.

Amber makes some world-class chili for lunch—a lot of it—and we all love it.

The weather’s been really warm the last few days. By time for VBS at 2, it’s above 70 degrees. We have about 75 children at VBS, and they’re pretty well behaved, so it all goes well. Luke and Salvin come by to help, so it’s almost ridiculously easy.

Supper of leftovers—we need to start thinking about not leaving a bunch of half-eaten food behind. I suspect we’ll have some staples to donate to the next renters.

Prayer meeting tonight is our last preaching assignment. Kevin will bring an electronic keyboard, and one of us will play for the congregational singing. We’ll do a special number, and I’ll preach. Last time for the trip.

And so it goes. Michaela plays, we all sing, and I preach; then we pray for most of the hour. It’s a good time of fellowship.

Jason, Luke, and Salvin come over to the house afterwards, and we eat junk food—Jess makes cookies—and play Signs until way too late. Actually, we’re just getting adjusted to US time. Or so we say.
