Man, this summer has been crazy. It's so hard to believe that it's half way over! This summer we have definitely learned a lot about being flexible.
The first Thursday in June we participated in the Gathering on Main in Owasso. The Gathering is always a great time to get to know people in our community. Plus, it's just really fun!
June 8th-12th, we went to Sparks Youth Camp in Sparks, Oklahoma. XM had spent the weeks before practicing to do Storybook and Unbreakable as part of the night services with Reggie Dabbs. On Sunday we had heard from Reggie that he may possibly not make it to camp. By Tuesday we knew for sure that Reggie was not going to be at Sparks. No Reggie meant no dramas. Our team was SO flexible with this. We were prepared to do them if we were needed, but I think they enjoyed their week being just campers.
Last Thursday was the July Gathering on Main! We smashed some plates, let go of some balloons, and took some polaroids. We love building relationships with our community! About 30 minutes before the event was supposed to end, a downpour began! It POURED long enough for us to pack up everything and make it back to the church and then it stopped. It was an adventure.
Another exciting moment is that we have been preparing once again for our annual trip to Kingdom Bound! Stay tuned for more on our preparation for this trip!
