I feel very sad for Roland. It's got to be hard to let her go. He says his arthritis makes it hard to do anything with his Molly. I'm reminded of my own father. He hated to give things up. It was very hard on him. Pray for Roland as he probably misses his horse. He said bought her when she was about a year old. She is now 16. There surely are a lot of good memories for Roland.
The 10 hour trip back to camp was good. We drove straight through. Our truck has an auxiliary gas tank under the tool box. The only problem with driving were all the drivers that cut too close in front of us for comfort. Why?
We are thankful that the fuel pump went out earlier on the trip. We were leaving Big Boy in Big Rapids and the truck would not start. We had to walk to church (about 7 blocks). We were crossing at a stop light on a walk signal. A big red truck was making a left turn and almost hit us. It was about 5 foot from me when it stopped. Scary! When we got back to the church, friends called around for a mechanic. He was able to have to truck fixed by the next morning. We were told he stayed up until 4 in the morning replacing the pump that was inside the gas tank. Wow. We won't tell you how much that cost, but we are humbly thankful for his hard work and lack of sleep.
Now Martha is at camp. Simeon and the girls have been riding her. She is slowly getting used to the other horses. We look forward to working with her in the camp program.
P.S. This was my first attempt at shortening a video.
