Back to Spain

I had a great time with David. We worked on a lot of video stuff together mostly trying to get better with 3D animation and other effects. It is amazing to look back and see how much our video and effects skills have increased over the short time we were together. I will missDavid a lot, but I have to get back to Spain for the Young Life camp.

I will be back in Spain on the 30th and will be going to camp on the 3rd.
The actual camp doesn't start till the 7th but we will be spending 4 days setting up and getting everything ready for the campers.

Please be praying for the staff and campers at will be coming to the camp.
I will try to get at least one more update in before I leave for camp. I am not sure if I weill have internet at the camp so you might not hear from me for a little while.

Thank you for all your prayers and support.

I've been having a good time with David, we just went to the lake yesterday and spent some time just resting.
I've been sick for he last week or so and have been trying to get better. I'm still a little stuffed up but nothing I can't handle.
We are working on some cool video stuff, mostly 3D modeling and effects. I'ts great being able to work on something with someone who has the same sort of ideas and thought about the project and using eachother's tallents to make some graeat stuff.

Here are some pictures:

I'm now in France using David's laptop to make this update. David is doing well and we are having a great time. We will be working on the last video for the Street Summer Basket Ball camp because I was not able to finish it while I was in Spain. This is because my laptop died two days ago. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it. I think it is either a motherboard or a power supply problem. Both of which if I could get fixed would cost about $380-500 seeing as my laptop only cost $600 to start with this does not seem like a good choice. Plus I would have to pay to ship it to the maker (HP). What Jonathan and I think is the best way to go about this would be to have my parents buy a laptop in the states and send it back with Neomi or one of the other Spanish kids.
That way the warranty will be in the states and I won't have to pay for shipping (about $150).
Please be praying about these choices. I will need a new laptop before the next Young Life camp starts on August 7th.

Striving for something higher

God has really been blessing us with opportunities to share His gospel.
Yesterday we went hiking with a few of the kids from the basket ball camp.
It was a hard, long (8 hour) hike up and down the mountain but it was good.
At the top of the mountain there was a church and we were able to sit and talk with the guys.
One of the them said he liked the prayer time we had the last day of basket ball camp and that lead to us talking about Christ and his death, then we talked about evolution and creation, all of the guys agreed that even if everything evolved there would have to be something (or someone) that has always been around to start it.
It was a good time with a lot of good questions and answers.
Thank you for your prayers, please keep praying for the youth and that they will come to the main young life camp were we can share a lot more with them.

I'm getting ready for my trip to France to visit David Blanchard. We will edit some of the basket ball video and design logos for the main Young Life camp here.

Here are some pictures of the hike. (I have to go now but I will upload more pics later.)

End of camp.

Today was the last day of the Street Summer Basket Ball camp. It was a good two weeks and today we were able to pray with some of the older teens. God has been building some great relationships with these kids and Young Life.
Please pray for the hearts of these youth and for the hike we will be going on with a few of them this Saturday.

Two down...

Things are going good, I have finished two of the three soccer camp videos that need to be finished by 4:00pm tomorrow.
Today we were able to share part of the Gospel with the basket ball camp kids. We talked about how to be a good example and how the best example of selflessness is Jesus.
Please be praying for the kids and our work.

Today I had lunch with Praxiz, the christian hip-hop band that was going to play at the basketball camp. I say "was going to play" because we had to cancel due to heavy rain.
But lunch was good none the less and the the band members are a great bunch.
Here are 2 of their music videos and some pictures of our lunch and a little after.

It is great here in Spain, all the kids are crazy and love to talk 100 miles a minute with words I don't understand, but I love 'em.
It has been a very hard week with soccer camp every morning and B-Ball till 10, I get to bed about 1:00 or so every night and go right back to work the next morning.
It's hard work but I love it none the less.

Friday a group of Spanish kids are coming to Phoenix to go to the Young Life camp there. Be sure to give them a warm AZ welcome.
(no pun intended.)

Naomi (one of Jonathan's daughters) will be among the the kids.

Well, that's all for now. I be updating every day so keep visiting.

"Here is the web sight of the company running the soccer camp just thought you might want to know a little more about them.

The basketball camp is going well and the three coaches are great guys and they just love playing with all the kids. Today they are taking some of the high school kids to the river to hike and build relationships.
Here are some photos of basket ball camp from yesterday. (Not as many kids showed up because it was raining part of the time.):
