3:56 PM We’re down the last few hours of our week at Word of Life. Right now Marlene is at the coin-operated laundry washing our clothes. I preached twice this AM and was deeply moved by the spontaneous response of the congregation both times. George Theis told me months ago that people are hungry to hear about the importan…

10:17 PM Just back from Word of Life Island. Around 600 teens and counselors crowded into Pine Pavilion for the service—which was loud and raucous, high-energy, incredibly exciting. Scott Foreman, Mike Laymon and Larry Bollback did a super job of keeping order amid the noise, cheers, clapping, singing, swaying, laught…

9:08 AM Getting ready for the two AM services. Rain seems to have stopped. Marlene told me she has read four books so far and is now reading through “The Zion Legacy,” a series by Brock and Bodie Thoene. Breakfast for me this AM was a Payday candy bar and half a Hershey’s chocolate bar. That’s all I need till lunch. 6:5…

3:48 PM Had two very good services this AM. The crowd at the Inn listened very intently as I spoke. The Campground (as the name implies) is a much more informal setting—outdoor, open-air tabernacle, lots of families, sort of a cross between a county fair and a tent revival. During the school year Wayne Lewis is the As…

11:57 AM Just back from speaking twice to the summer staff. At the first meeting, I think everyone was pretty sleepy—long weekend for most of the students. The Antichrist is a tough topic when you are sleepy. Much different on the Island. We rode over on a speedboat—I loved it and Marlene grinned and held on to …

8:45 PM Greetings from Word of Life Inn in beautiful Schroon Lake, high in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York (about 50 miles south of Lake Placid where the Winter Olympics were held in 1980). We had an excellent flight from Chicago to Albany on an American Eagle jet, then rented a car for the 80 mile trip up Int…

Friday, February 28 We arrived back in Oak Park late this evening, a little weary from the travel but glad for the time spent at Word of Life Florida. I ended up riding 102 miles on the bike I bought, then I turned it over to the conference center today. Last night I spoke at 10:30 PM to the students at the Bible Institute …
