STEP it up[date]

This past month and coming summer I've recieved the immense privlige of being able to work with the STEP program at the International ALERT Academy in Big Sandy, TX.  Skills Training for Emergency Preparedness (STEP) is a four-week outdoor adventure program for young women ages 15 and older. This challenging program is designed to build confidence on individual and team levels, in preparation to respond to life’s emergencies,while learning to put their trust in the Lord. I'm having a bunch of fun with the girls in my group learning ropes and knots and canoeing and search and rescue and a whole ton of other things. 
Please pray for my group and I as we continue to prepare to serve others in emergencies this next month and learn again and again and again what this means:

"Love the Lord your God with all your
 heart, soul, mind and strength."
