6:42 AM Are you wondering where your teenagers went? Yesterday Pastor Craig Hammond (and other adult leaders) left with a bus full of Allied Force high school students for Cedar Point Amusement Park on the shores of Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio. The park bills itself as the Roller Coaster Capital of the World. Check it out. I wonder if anyone in our group will ride every single roller coaster in the park? They return to Oak Park late tomorrow afternoon. 6:40 AM Anthony Bollback has the latest China clippings. 6:35 AM This continues to be a “China Summer” for the Pritchard family. Josh returned from China last Thursday. Nick left for China a few days before that. We just heard from him a few minutes ago. He’s now in Handan, several hundred miles south of Beijing. Here’s a link to the Handan steelworks. Handan is on the same latitude as Nashville, TN. Mark leaves for China on August 11. So it’s all China, all the time in our corner of the world. 6:34 AM I’m back online!
