After finishing some meetings up in Michigan today, we decided to swing through Gull Lake Ministries, a special place to our family where we've served and been served over the past nine years.
Not only has Dave been the speaker there every other year since 2008, two of our kids have spent several of their summers serving on staff at this excellent family camp ministry.
And now? The Patty legacy continues with our niece, Rebecca!
Since staff are not allowed to have their phones during the week, or be on social media (leadership wants them to be fully present with the campers and families), she didn't know we were coming. How fun it was to surprise her!
We came in on banquet night, which means it's adults only for dinner (kids have their own program and dinner at a different location). So we came in to a fancy evening and enjoyed not only an excellent meal, but the best cup of coffee ever, served by our dear niece!
We were only at GLM for a few hours, so soon it was time to say goodbye to her. But I'm so glad we got to have that little touchpoint with her!
"We love you Becca!"
