Club Leo: Take Two

January 21, 2010

We’ll be finishing this second round of Club Leo by the end of February, and I’m pleased to say that someone already returned an order form. A couple weeks ago I got a chance to tell the Middle School students at Ginger Creek about the Library Mission, thanks to Jenn Roy who coordinates a lot of what goes on in that arena. Sometime during the summer, a bunch of those students will be going down to Nicaragua, and I’m excited to see how they respond, what impacts them, what kind of an impact they make.

I  set up a page for the Library Mission on, you can check it out by clicking here.


10 Books

January 16, 2010

When the most recent group of people from my church went down to Nicaragua, they brought with them ten books. (See which ones by clicking that link.) By the way, Marcia, if you are reading this, thank you for finding a way to work it out on such short notice. =]

Most of the group will not return for a few days more, and I can’t wait to hear how it went. Marcia will remain in Nicaragua for a couple more months, though.


Great News

Today the book cover roll and book tape that I ordered came in the mail. =] Apparently the warehouse is located in Wisconsin and not Florida or somewhere equally distant. I’m grateful for the uncertainty, though, because it helps me to put things in perspective.

With the help of my sister, I was able to cover two books. It wasn’t as simple as I imagined, but I’ll get the hang of it. In any event, I won’t be doing this forever because I’d like to send the rolls of book cover down so the people in Nicaragua can do it themselves. I took a couple pictures while I was covering the books. You can see them below.

I placed an order the other day for two items from Highsmith. However, they are being delivered via ground shipping, so I’m a little concerned that they will not arrive before January 14th. In any event, God is in control, so I’m not worried. =] If I have to send some books down there without protection, so be it. If I have to wait a little longer, so be it. The biggest thing–as it is with everything–is that I’m listening for God’s voice, and praying about the decisions I have to make. I’d appreciate it if you would pray as well–not just about this isolated situation, but that God’s mission and God’s plan would be done through all the Library Mission’s actions. It’s important to keep things in perspective: when it comes down to it, our mission is the Great Commission.
