Tonja and I took Lyndsey and Rob to Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek on June 23rd. You can view some of the pictures I took at http://picasaweb.google.com/thematthewsclan - There are some other pics there that you are welcome to browse through, too.
We dropped the kids off @ camp Ao-wa-kiya on the 24th – they have a long stretch in front of them. I am prayerful that Lyndsey's growing love for ministry will be strengthened. She should see that serving God isn't always fun – but it is always a blessing. I am hoping that Rob's heart for service will also be enhanced with a great desire to serve God.
Lyndsey had to be a camper the first week there – but now she is involved in clean-up services. Most of the workers there are volunteer staff. However, because she is going to college, Lyndsey will get a small scholarship from the camp to be applied to NTBI. That is real nice. Although NTBI is relatively inexpensive – it is still something outside of our budget. This will help cover some of her start up expenses. BTW, if you wish to donate to her college fund – give me a call.
