Canyoneering in Zion/Death Valley National Parks
Firstly, let me praise God on this fine Easter Day filled with the everlasting hope of our Lord Jesus! He continues to prove himself faithful to me in very real ways...
After putting in my church bulletin a prayer request last week for favor with the SOuth African Consulate in LA to receive my 2-year Visa before my departure date on May 3, I came home on Friday just in time to receive a Fed-Ex with passport enclosed and everything as I prayed it to be! He is risen and alive indeed! I just pray to remain in His will, for my life truly belongs to Him.
So, as the title indicates, my father and I just returned with a great group of men from a week-long canyoneering/backpacking trip in Utah, Nevada and California. I knew it was going to be a physically stimulating trip as well as give me some quality time out in the wilderness with the Dad, but was not expecting to be so refined in so short a time by the godly men we went with. Below are a few pics from the trip, and I hope to post some more on Facebook soon.
