My apologies for not posting. My computer was left at home and I forgot I could blog from my phone.
We arrived safely Sunday night around 4:30pm. After setting up camp we headed to Lakeview CRC for supper and to meet up with the rest of the group. PLYC is going through leadership changes so there were last minute adjustments we needed to make. Now we’d be the helpers for all 5-8th graders. A tribal Sundance and funeral have kept our number of campers lower, which has allowed this to be a manageable task.
Wendi and I (Chad) continue to hear each day how impressed they are with our team. And it is true each one is doing a wonderful job. Please continue to pray for unity, health, energy, and wisdom as God continues to challenge us to love these campers and walk with them even in their heart breaking stories.

On Wednesday, Lauren, Matthew, and Jill taught about how our extraordinary God gave Joseph perseverance to endure the trials of slavery and prison. God continued to be with Joseph just as God continues with us. In the evening, we attended a community gathering in Low Rent Rosebud. We played on the playground equipment Faith church helped provide a few years back. Thursday will be our last day at camp because Friday we will be taking the 5th-8th graders swimming in Valentin, NB. Due to the change, there won't be any WIFI for blog updates Friday and Saturday. I will do my best to update the blog with pictures and videos if possible. On Thursday, Tristan, Kaida, and Courtney will talk about the obedience of Noah. Chad

Greetings from Rosebud! We survived the triple digit temps with flying colors. There were a few head aches, so we're pumping our group with water, but all is well. On Tuesday, DJ, Erin, and Franklin taught about the incredible bravery the boy David had in defeating Goliath. We to can live courageously with God as our strength. Also on Tuesday evening we had a chance to interact with Adam and Soliel; two rappers/dancers/singers for Jesus who are helping at PLYC this year. Chad

As always on the reservation adaptability is key as there was another funeral at our facility requiring us to move. For the rest of the week we now will find ourselves at the Todd County Middle School full furnished with a gym, air conditioning, air room, and no transportation necessary. God is good..thank you for your prayers. Chad

Arrived at Rosebud safely last night around 4:30pm. Hot Hot Hot! 107 degrees at Murdo, SD. Had supper and went to church at Lakeview CRC. Monday morning it cooled off a little. Thank goodness because the AC wasn't working at the Carpenters Shop Church where we meet. Pray for that! Everyone's healthy and in great spirits though. You learn to be adaptable in reservation. Will try and get pictures later. Chad
