Greetings dear Friends,

After much effort and repairs managed by our web host, our On a Wheel and a Prayer blog is healthy again and ready for our use. Thank you for your patience over the past 15 months, we apologize for any inconvenience this mis-management on our part caused any of you. We are grateful for your interest and support!

 

Our 2018-19 fall/winter SOWER projects trip has begun! We left South Dakota during the busy harvest time and arrived in Anadarko, Oklahoma on October 26th at Oakridge Ministries Camp. This camp is set on the side of a beautiful, wooded hill, 1 mile west of Anadarko. The property serves youth camps in the summer, and retreat space for groups, families and churches in the off season. They have beds for up to 300 persons. Also, Fort Sill Army military base from Lawton, OK uses this beautiful camp to love on and minister to their service men and women at multiple times throughout the year.

Jenny had the privilege of working along side these 3 beautiful ladies, Stephanie Conrad, Kim Trivilino and Lana Harper. The ladies repaired quilts for many twin beds, cleaned and organized the camp store, library and laundry rooms. Jenny had the joy of working over at the animal farm and cleaned multiple water tanks on the warm days!

In the 3 weeks we served at Oakridge Camp, Don worked in several different areas; helped add electricity to the pool area, repaired several door frames and completed some much needed sorting and organizing of one of the work shops and storage containers.

Joe Trvilino and Dan Harper worked on rewiring and adding electrical service to many of the camp buildings and Gary Conrad installed new bright lighting to the bunk rooms and chapel areas.

We thoroughly enjoyed serving with the Ball family, the owners and directors of Oakridge camp. They extended their love to us so that we felt like part of the family!! To God be the glory!!
