Arizon trip

I've added two posts this week. The first one is below and I added that on Wednesday. This one is to update you on what happened since I got back from NC.
Last week from Tues-Fri I was in Catalina (ie.near Tucson) AZ. Our organization held some Child Safety Seminar classes, which I along with my colleagues attended on Wednesday. Thursday we met to discuss the future of our camping programs as well as to try to better define our dept.
In the evenings we shared meals both at our recruiter friends home one night and a retired organizational member the next. We got to watch 2 fabulous sunsets in Arizona! The desert in the southern part of our United States is absolutely beautiful. AS you can see!
This week at work I've had a lot more to do. I'm keeping up with a number of new recruits in my specialty age group and we are starting work on some new ideas. Which I will tell you about as i have a better idea of how it might work out. if you know anyone who might be interested in a short term mission trip to Cameroon, Africa next summer. We are in the beginning stages of planning one. Let me know!
Youth group on Wednesday was so much fun. I ran the game, which is not my favorite thing to do, but I used a game we used in Russia and it was alot of fun. Our group has dwindled in size. There are probably a number of factors why. One of them being we lost our youth pastor earlier this summer so we're starting up again fresh. We have a tiny little budget too, but that is normal for youth groups all over the country! Gotta get creative!
I finished my office finally, so next week I'll post pictures of my "other world"!
Thanks again for checking in! andPS> don't forget there are two posts this week. I want you to meet Michael my boyfriend.

Official introduction to my blog friends

This blog is primarily for the "dissemination" of information to my partners, of my mission activities. But knowing that you my partners are also my friends I want to introduce to you my boyfriend "Mike" or "Michael" as I call him. We've been dating since the end of July and he has met both my parents, but not Lee yet.
So, a little info for the inquiring minds. Yes, he is a believer and originally from California. He's a little bit younger than me (27mths) and works for the Army. For now he's stationed at California Polytechnic University as a Professor of Military Science in the ROTC unit. He has served 14+mths in Iraq as a helicopter pilot (yeah, for those that know, just like Dad!) His intention is to make the Army his career, but there are a number of options out there for him when it's time for a reassignment. You could pray for him and his family as his mother is facing serious health issues and we don't know how much longer she has until our Father calls her home. His Dad has been gone since 2006, so many of the responsibilities of his family have fallen on Michael.
We have tons in common, aside from aviation and the military and I look forward to introducing him to y'all when the time permits! He is coming to CT in October, but because of his work and the flight schedule he won't be able to make it to church this time. He will get to see the Lee Pitts family and my "home town". Maybe those of you in CT will see him over the Christmas holidays!
Thanks for checking in. Ministry news will be posted in a few days! All is well!
