Thank you for a great summer!

I think it was yesterday (not 3 months ago) that I sat down to announce our summer interns. Sorry, I got busy and never finished that post. They were great by the way! Our fabulous 2010 interns were :

Austin Holt, from Granbury, TX, a Senior at  Abilene Christian University. Don’t panic, that’s just one of our street friends “tattooing” his face with a black Sharpie. It really freaked his mom out.

Jorden Lemons, from Wichita Falls, TX, a recent graduate of Oklahoma Christian University. She was so great, we decided to keep her! Jorden is currently raising financial support to work with SEVENS full-time.

Jordan Jacobs, from Denver, CO, a high school senior and friend of the family. Yes, that’s him in the snow in July. We were so happy to have Jordan with us for a second summer. I don’t think I’m going to let him move away. Ever.

We also had some wonderful volunteers:

Jordan’s whole family was part of the SEVENS team this summer. His sister Mikayla helped us out with childcare on Thursdays and Fridays when we had our SABBATH groups here, and his parents, Charles and Kimberly cooked our Friday evening feasts.

Karianne Larson, another local high schooler, helped us our with our first SABBATH group of the summer.

Our nephew, Clay Skrapits, visited from Texas and volunteered with us during our last group of the summer.

The awesome people at the Boulder Valley Church of Christ hosted us in their building all summer long, and provided our SABBATH meals on the second Saturday of each month.

The Journey Church provided meals on the first Saturdays of each month.

Thank you to everyone who gave generously of themselves to make SEVENS a strong presence on the streets of Boulder this summer! We really couldn’t have done it without you! I’d also like to thank the 5 youth groups that participated in our summer program, SABBATH:

Westlink church of Christ from Wichita, KS. (Nick Miller)

Grapevine church of Christ, from North Richland Hills, TX (Russell Frantz)

Granbury church of Christ from Granbury, TX (Chris Robey)

South Main church of Christ from Weatherford, TX (Cody Chumbley)

Boulder Valley church of Christ from Boulder, CO (Caleb Cox)
