My Mentor

June 29th, 2006

My mentor is someone I aspire to be like. When I was a boy I watched him in his role of camp director. When I was 18 I had the joy of spending a summer under his direction while working at Lakeside Bible Camp. When I was 24 I began to work at the same […]

June 25th, 2006

Yesterday I went spelunking with Dan and Rob. Rob knew this mostly unknown ‘living cave’ out just past the middle of nowhere (we stopped at the ‘middle of nowhere café’ on the way back.) For two hours we found stalagmites, stalactites and hidden caverns on the other side of tiny cracks.
