Heading home and Thinking Forward

Friday, June 24, 2011

It’s departure day. Carolyn, Judy, Marjorie, Jeanne and Peggy are driving home today and Don and I will go and visit my seminary class mate who lives about 2 hours straight east of here. (Linda’s husband, Jerry is the one in charge of the workshop at Re-Member.)

In visiting with Jerry, he tells me that a desperate need that Re-Member has is for twin sized sheets to continue giving linens with their bunk beds. Do any of you have sheets (77” long is best) that you can donate? If we can find what we need, I will put together a package and get a group headed west to deliver it for us.

We have so much to tell you all about this trip. It was filled with some challenges including the rain and absence of the director who is so good at telling the story of the Lakota people. There were some health challenges and travel challenges, but we are all OK and ready to share our experiences.

Thank you SO MUCH to all who supported us with your gifts and prayers. In the next several months we will determine plans for next year. MISO will decide whether there is enough interest in sending another team to the reservation, so if you have thoughts about wanting to go, please speak to Kim Kettering or Pastor Joyce so we can take those requests into consideration.
