Brendan hanging out at NBC

he was enjoying himself!

We had an excellent couple weeks of NBC Camps at Eastern Oregon University and Whitworth University. We had an amazing staff and really neat groups of young ladies as campers. We are always pretty tired by the time both camps get done--but are always so thankful for the opportunity we have to do this ministry together. It is fun to see the camps growing and the impact the camp has on everyone, not only as volleyball players but as people.

Our theme this summer has been ELECTRIC. Please join us all as we pursuit to lead lives reaching for our ELECTRIC POTENTIAL (understanding that it takes struggle and precise practice to succeed), sharing our ELECTRIC POWER (influencing all those around you for the good, building people up instead of tearing them down), having ELECTRIC PERSPECTIVE (guarding our minds against the negative thoughts that say I can't do it, and being cautious of the traps in life that take us down empty roads...instead choosing to be self-disciplined, choosing to forgive, and choosing to think positively), and understanding that to be electric we must find our power--our ELECTRIC PURPOSE in the ultimate power source--JESUS CHRIST. What a fun and special summer at NBC!! Thank you all who made an impact!

4th of July

WOW--what a crazy but fun month. We were able to visit Josh's family in Sun Valley over the 4th of July, what a special and great time. Brendan got to meet his Grandpa Tim, Great Grandma Cathy and Donna, Aunt Kathy and Uncle Steve, Great Aunt Vickie, and Cousins Tammy, Amy, David and little Dirk (they are already great buds). We feel very lucky and blessed to have such wonderful family. It will be fun to watch Brendan and Dirk grow up together.
