MAY UPDATE

HERE IS WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE MOUNTAIN

A BIG MONTH ON THE MOUNTAIN!

There is much to report this month!  I am going to do most in pictures.  Let's begin by introducing two young people that recent additions to the Pursuit program. 

Sara Hicks is 16 and from Briggsdale, Colorado.  Her mom Kendra Hicks (Anderson) was in the program in 1992 and her grandpa Rod Anderson and family have been a part of Uplift since the beginning.  Some of you may remember Rod as the "rock guy" that would come teach about God through geology.  Sarah, wants to "grow in  faith and draw closer to God"  She wants to be more consistent in her character and is looking for direction on her journey.

Josh Jung is 17 and From McKinney, TX.  He wants to learn more about God and desires to be more about engaging other people.  He is a soccer player and is looking forward to, "spending time outdoors and doing activities".  (Good thing!)

Some of the preparations for the summer involved moving the bike storage cabin to a new location and building bunks and shelves in it.  This is a restoration to what the cabin was originally and many of you can relate to the memories of close quarters and simple living.  Once again, Brandon White was here to help with this project.

OTHER HAPPENINGS THIS MONTH

We were able to get a free playground from a person in Colorado Springs.  Son, Danny took some time away from flight school to help take it down and load it up.   It is in the process of reassembly and will be a great addition to the mountain, the Gathering and  Amy's community library.  Grandson Eddie is especially helpful on this project!

Winter hung on for a long time this spring. The 10th of May we had over 14" of new snow!  It has made many projects difficult but we were able to plant the green house early enough to already be enjoying greens.

My brother Allen was able to come for a visit and as a true Selden wanted to work.  He and dad took on fixing the skylight on the chapel among other things.  Scott Gillespie also helped on the painting project in the library part of the chapel building.  Amy's wish for a brighter accent wall was granted!

Join us this summer for the TEEN LEADERSHIP FORUM WEEK or bring a church group or come as a couple or a family.  The Mountain is going to be especially beautiful with green and wildflowers this year.  Come see us and be challenged, encouraged and refreshed!
