Dear Rancho Del Rey friends,
Our dream team staff took the whole gang camping for 2 nights this past weekend. Mothers and day visitors (such as myself and Dad – Hank – who don’t love sleeping in tents) participated in the crazy fun and the wonderful times of sharing that happens outside in the fields, after lots of playing, and around the campfire. Many tears were shed as the boys opened their hearts during a sharing time called “Deja Te Cuento” (“Let Me You My Story”).
The Lord ministered and healed hearts and made our time together so much fun… Some of you will recognize Antonio Galvan (the tall kid), an alum from a few years ago visiting for the weekend. Juan returned last week (much larger than when he left), we have a new boy, Roberto, and little Oscar was taken by his mom back home. Pray for him!
On a sad note, the father of our new cook, Enrique Peña, died Monday night of a sudden heart attack. He was 74 but was so very strong and such a loving father and godly man; he will be greatly missed. Please pray for comfort for the Peña family.
Thanks for rejoicing and crying with us…
(The kids are chanting “another camping trip” at the end. :-))
