The Gear

Well, this morning, Ben went to one of the fire stations to pick up his gear. I don't know what all that entails, but it is still kind of exciting. Against all odds, Ben will be able to attend the paid call fire academy...So, Monday through Friday he will work from lunch to midnight or so...and a full day of the academy on Saturdays. Please pray for us, as this will be a very busy summer. But it is so exciting, and Ben will have his graduation from the acadamy in mid August. I already feel so proud of him. Anyway, he begins the acadamy this Saturday, and I know he's already a little worn out from working so much at the camp. Just pray that the Lord will sustain us all, and that He will continue to go before us will all the details regarding scheduling. God has already made a way, with the camp being so willing to let him do this in the busiest season of the year!! And, God even answered a secret prayer of my heart...The ONE Saturday they won't be doing the acadamy training from now until August is July 1st....which just happens to be our little man's birthday!! Yeah!!
