Took some pizza and some ice cream sandwiches and a Christmas surprise (a gaming station...shhh...that was Ryan’s idea and a brilliant one at that!) up to the guys at the Teen Challenge Center today with Paul MacNeil, Ryan MacNeil and Tim Sleigh. Although we didn’t have much time to spend with the guys I think it was one of my favourite trips out of the past ten years up.
The Bible says that all fatherhood comes from God (Ephesians 3:14-15). But so many sons on earth endure fallible, absentee fathers who fail to provide direction, counsel, encouragement, or love. Many sons also lose nurturing fathers in tragedy, so they, too, are left without guidance.

The fellowship,encouragement and time that you share is an amazing gift. The steaks are an added bonus; thank you from the bottom of our hearts (and stomachs)!"
Had a great time in Memramcook hanging with the gang at the center and playing some Friday night football. The 9 yr dynasty of undefeated road trips came to and end with a score of 28-21 in favour of the guys at the TC center but spirits were lifted as always on both sides of the field!! Awesome men and Awesome time!!
