Well in less than 2 weeks we will be sending our dorm boys home for a month. We have had such a great first term with them. They are a great group of guys, but we are ready for a break! It is hard to put into words how tired we get. We do not really understand why we are so tired, but by 8:30 each night we are ready to crash and hit the sack. We are normally in bed by 10:00 at the latest. This is much earlier than the high school dorm parents.
Would you be praying for our dorm boys as they head home that they would be able to spend quality time with there parents and be able to make some memories that will last them a life time. The boys are here at RVA 9 months out of the year so they spend a little over 3 months with there parents.
Please also pray for us as we will have a busy month off. Angela’s sister and husband will be coming to visit us the first 2 weeks of December and I have alot of work to do with computer related items. We are going to be moving one of our main wiring closets and that will mean alot of rewiring and work. It will be worth it in the long run, but will take a lot of time. It will really clean things up. I also have a bunch of audio things to do in one of the buildings.
This past weekend we had one of our boys father with us. We asked him how things were going and he said they were going pretty good, but that they were dealing with a lot of spiritual warfare. I believe there is much more spiritual warfare going on than what we think. Many years ago I read several of Frank Peretti’s books that deal with spiritual warfare and they gave a very graphic idea of what it might be like. I imagine if we could see what is going around RVA and the world we would be amazed and awed at how God is protecting us and many others. Please be in prayer as many of us deal with spiritual warfare on a daily basis. Just after SEW (spiritual emphasis week) it seemed as if we were attacked by sickness and several things. It took us a little while to work thru it, but we are slowly getting back to where we were.
