On the Road Again...

Mr. Muffin and I are leaving for the summer mission trip Sunday morning and there are just a few more things that need to be done around the house before we leave. I look forward to a week of being outdoors, surrounded by nature, working, Phase 10, and getting to know other members of our church more personally. Pastor J. is going as the other adult female chaperone which I am really excited about since there have not been a lot of down time opportunities for us to hang out and get to know each other. The five gals that are going are active in MYF and also attend the girl's Bible study on Wednesday nights that I am a part of. Each girl is very conversational, silly, and best of all low maintenance! What I mean is that I won't have to worry about being woken up at 4a.m. by the sound of hairdryers or worry about someone blowing a fuse so that they can straighten their hair at camp! Last year I heard wonderful stories about the quality time spent rocking in chairs after a hard day's work overlooking the mountains on the porch at Hinton. I started a really good book a few days ago by Elizabeth Gilbert called "Eat Pray Love" that I hope to read some during our down time. My prayers are that we will be the hands and feet of God for those in need and that each individual will experience God in a new way. Also, I am praying that my back will not be a burden on my efforts of physical labor. For those of you who don't know I suffer from severe lower back tension that sends really intense pains and muscle cramps into my hips. As you will read in Mr. Muffin's blog, there will be a new blog dedicated to our progress and photos during our stay at Hinton! Have a great week and keep us in your prayers!

P.S. Ali Carrie will be enjoying her own vacation at Camp "Muffin-Laws."
