There are days when I wish each of you could be on campus with me.
That was the case last week when the sun came out (between rain showers) and so did our youth. They enjoyed badminton, basketball, a game of chase on the playground and other activities that allowed them to run off some energy. I had a chance to take pictures as I watched them enjoy learning new skills and I listened to the relaxed laughter that accompanies summertime fun.
You are the reason that our kids get these opportunities. Your gifts support their healing. Your gifts support their learning. And while it may look like fun and games, we know that hope grows in the midst of simple summertime pleasures.
By the way, you should also know that four Cunningham youth are getting ready to head off to church camp, a place where they can experience a community of fun and faith. It's another enriching experience that's made possible because of your gifts. Thank you for all you do to make a difference in the lives of our kids.
