Relax moms and dads. All of the students are holding up great, although the heat is taking a toll at the end of each day. Saturday night, some combination of too much sun, dehydration, unfriendly food, or whatever caught up with me and I spent the next 24+ hours uncomfortably in a hotel room. It wasn't pretty. I am better today, almost up to 60%...but that other 40% would sure come in handy right about now.
Please keep the team's health as a matter of prayer. It is difficult to describe the physical challenge to be fresh at each stop along the way...but these athletes are putting forth an exceptional effort and doing a great work.
