'ahhh! It's a balmy 89 today in So. Missouri. Nice breeze and sunny with a few high clouds. PERFECT!

Leaves are just now starting to get some red in a few limbs of the trees. In 2 weekends we go for the Eye of the Needle in Arkansas...it should be purdy on the way out on Saturday.

Nice here too, except I haven't killed any armadillos. I do see them dead on the road every now and then. As a kid in Florida I saw them everywehere, but didn't see them at all when we moved to SC until a few years ago. Any idea why they're moving north, and how far north will/can they migrate?

Armadillos had originally come up from South America, and had only been indigenous to Mexico, and then Texas. Eventually, they continued north, and are now as far as Missouri, and possibly Iowa.

They had only been west of the Mississippi River. There is a story that they came to the eastern United States by someone from Florida who took them as pets and then released them. There is also a possibility that a pregnant armadillo made it across a bridge in Louisiana or Arkansas.

Make your own best guess.

They have a very low body temperature for a small mammal: about 90 degrees. That is why they are known carriers of leprosy. Apparently a higher body temperature can kill off the leprosy microbe.

Dogs and cats have a normal body temperature of 101 to 102 degrees.

The "experts" used to say that armadillos couldn't take a climate colder than northern Texas.

I think that you can see how THAT worked out!

Heading out on our annual outpost family camp this weekend, today through Sunday. Not everyone is coming from the outpost for one reason or another, but we still have 14 families coming adding up to around 60 people from both RR and AHG sides of the outpost. It was impossible to get all the campsites all grouped together at the state park, but we did the best we could to keep everyone close. We rented an additional campsite that will act as a common area for activities, games, and evening campfire. We're contemplating renting a private camp next year instead of trying to fit into a state park. This thing has grown every year, and because we hold this camp in the off season, the rental price might be doable.

We will do a short devotion each night and then one Sunday morning before we break camp. Our outpost is made up of a good number of families who do not attend our church, and out of those there are some families that don't attend church much if at all. Keep us in prayer that Holy Spirit will pull their hearts towards Him this weekend.

So far so good! We had a good evening tonight. I lead a couple songs on the guitar around the campfire and then we did a devotion. Now it's all quiet and I'm hanging with another commander before going to bed. Good times.

I'd have to say this 3rd annual Family Camp was the best so far! The first and second years there was no itinerary, so people just hung out and did whatever. That seemed to work the first year with just a few families. Last year we had a few more families and it still worked somewhat, but it seemed like there was something lacking. So this year we had designated meal times, and activity times throughout the weekend with free time in between. That worked great. Even with the vastly expanded number of people there, we were able to spend more time getting to know new families via the activities.

It's neat because we're one outpost with two different programs, RR and AHG. Some families have both gender children, while others just one or the other. While we see each other in passing at outpost meetings, we don't have a lot of contact with them because we're focused on our kids. It was great getting to know the AHG families and it really brought the outpost more together rather than just two programs meeting at the same time and place. Mission accomplished.

Friday night devotion time was a little lighter as everyone was just getting settled in. Saturday night's devotion time was a little more in depth and had some good ministry time without going so long that we lost people's attention. And then we had a great Sunday morning worship time around the fire. Most everyone left knowing new friends and looking forward to seeing everyone next week at the outpost meeting. I say 'most everyone' because I guess you'll always have those who refuse to step outside of their comfort zone and participate in activities and meet new people. We had a couple of those, but that's their call. Some people will always stand outside looking in even when the door is wide open for them to enter.

I heard from several people that they would really like the family camp to be bi-annual instead of annual and I think I'm inclined to agree. I think the leadership will have to look at the calendar and try to fit one in in the spring.

I'm getting the vehicle prepped and ready for next couple days. There is some event going on at a stadium can't seem to recall scratch mmm the WORLD SERIES thats it. Top it off we have Cavaliers NBA opener and this weekend will be busy for Halloween too. With all hotels downtown and surrounding suburbs booked up should generate some high surge multipliers. This past Sun morning at 2:22 am it peaked at 5.1x normal fare rate which makes a $10 fare exceed $50.
