Pastor Burke Shade and his lovely daughter Joanna are visiting us with us in Wenatchee this week. Burke will be speaking at our "Covenant Family Conference" this weekend, but came early to enjoy some Northwest skiing (they are from the flat-lands of southern Illinois.) The Lord, who loves to give his children "more than we are able to ask or imagine", graced us with 16 inches of fresh-fallen powder from the night before. Cowabunga!
We were joined for the day by Derek Carlson whose idea of a warm-up run was the deep powder located on the near vertical slope of a double-black-diamond run. (Me: Hey Derek, umm, is there another way to go down from here?)
