Smokey downtown Jacksonville, Florida

By the time you read this we will be in New York City for our summer project. We spent the last few days traveling up to Maryland where my (Kirk’s) parents live. We traveled through wildfire zones (Jacksonville, Florida – the pic of the city skyline is Jacksonville, that’s not fog, but smoke) stopped over night in Charlotte, NC with Scott and Audrey (thanks you two). We then drove through the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia (I was reminded of my Civil War history and “Stonewall” Jackson) before arriving today in Elkton, MD. It was two long days and I am quite tired – I hope I recover enough for the project.

Tomorrow we are taking the train into the Big Apple where we will begin the project for the staff – the students arrive on Monday. Sarah will be making furious preparations for the art work to be done and I will be doing more prep for the teaching times. Please pray that we focus and are able to get work done.

We will be sending out a “funds update” (probably something referring to “pie”) soon, but in the meantime ask that you continue to pray for God’s provision for our summer.

Thanks for your continued prayers!
Kirk and Sarah
