On this assignment at Heart of Texas Camp I have done an assortment of jobs. I started in the office working on Policy and Procedure manuals and job descriptions. Then I boxed up old records and organized the new years information in the files. I really enjoy this kind of office work but also missed the opportunity to work with the other two women. We seem to bond so well working together. I arranged 50 jars of flowers. They may have to rearrange them as this is not one of my talents.

We cleaned, painted rooms and helped in every way we could. I thought how neat it would be to be able to work in a kitchen in one of these camps. I asked the Lord to give me an opportunity to help in a kitchen sometime and somewhere. I didn’t know He would answer my prayer today. After crawling on a floor for an hour painting up against the wall, we were summoned to the kitchen ASAP. I was the first one to arrive and see that our job was to fabricate 59 chickens. I guess fabricate also means debone. For the next three hours, four of us deboned 59 cooked chickens. My prayers were sure answered quickly. My legs hurt, my back hurt, and my fingers were numb. But it is going to make some wonderful soup to feed 300 people tomorrow at a fund raiser. Thank you, Lord for answering my prayers.
How quickly the time goes. Our work at Heart of Texas is done. Our good friends from Minnesota have left but we will see them again next week at the SOWER 40th reunion in Big Sandy, TX. We will miss our leaders Don and Betty. They are a precious couple.
The farmer and I are helping with a Senior Day program here at the camp on Tuesday then on Wednesday we will leave for the reunion also.

I think we could stay in Texas. We love the friendly people and the “Howdy Y’all” we’ve heard at the camp, at church and even in the stores. It’s such a delight to see those friendly faces. They still know how to do customer service here in the heart of Texas.
We took a weekend trip to Austin to see my brother and his wife and girls. It was such a delight to be with them and to get to attend church together. He is my only sibling so he’s pretty special.
Tomorrow I’m working in the kitchen again but not on chicken. Maybe this will still be my dream job.
