As a token of appreciation for all the hard work the staff has been doing here at HQ recently, Mr. Gothard graciously allowed for a staff outing on Friday afternoon and evening. I had been unusually busy for a few weeks and so it was really nice to take the time to relax a bit and build relationships with those I don’t get to work with as closely.
One of the locations we visited was the Lincoln Park Zoo right smack in the middle of Chicago. I let Clayton use my camera some of the time and we had fun discussing photography while shooting live subjects.
God blessed the trip: we handed some tracks, a few young men we met at the beach actually prayed to receive Christ, and I believe our goal of encouraging the staff was accomplished.
