Denver Colorado [second update]

Things that I have learned about Denver:

- It is not humid and you don't get as "sticky". PLUS!
- Most people don't put cheese on their hot dogs.
- You are a whole lot closer to the sun and you burn a lot easier.
 I think it has something to do with the thin air too.
- The air is thin and even when you think you are used to it you may not be.

These are just a few of my lessons here in Denver.

As far as student work things are going great! 22 of the 44 students have jobs which is great considering the fact that they have only been job hunting 3 days so far. Please pray that the other 22 will find jobs soon!

We are starting to kick off the teaching a evening events. A big part of my "job" this week will be planning a ladies retreat for all of the girls this weekend. It should be a great time of fun and fellowship as well as digging in the word together.

This last Saturday was a "free" day in a sense. All of the students had things planned so Britt and I went to downtown Denver with one of the staff families. We were searching out free things to do. I am SOOO sad I forgot my camera but I snagged a few pictures off of the Internet.

This is a park in downtown Denver. You can get in this River and ride the rapids down on a tube or something like that. We did that and it was a blast! Freezing, but a blast! Britt was commenting on how we sure don't have anything like this in Oklahoma. That would be true.

We also went to 16th street mall. It is SO much fun and a really cool experience. It is literally on 16th street in Denver but it is blocked off so that only the tram (that you see in the picture) can drive and the rest is just shopping, dinning and entertainment.

We are loving it in Denver but most of all we are truly loving the opportunity to spend everyday with these students that we are growing to love more and more. It is a wonderful experience to do life-on-life with them in a setting like this. We appreciate all of your support and prayers more than you will ever know. God is so faithful to meet all of our needs and we truly feel the support of the body of Christ around us as we serve these college students and work to make an investment in their lives that will cause them to serve Christ more fully. We are so thankful that the Lord has given us this opportunity and we know apart from Him we can do nothing. Please continue to pray for us!
