Pray for the thru-hikers! (NOBO, SOBO, and FLIPPERS)

Hey everyone!

Just taking a minute during my lunch break to send out an appeal to you all. As you know, Bark and Berry summitted Katahdin on October 1st, and we celebrate their achievement. I was fortunate to be able to make the climb that day, meeting them on top. It happened to be a class 3 hiking day, not ideal, but we made it!

So, today, as I am out in the lumber yard, slogging around in the pouring rain and mud, my mind turned to the thru-hikers. The window for Katahdin is slowly closing, yet there are many hikers trying to finish... I saw a group of about 10 NOBO's at Caratunk just the other day. Their spirits were still good, but they have a tough hike ahead!

Could you please join me in taking a little time EVERY DAY to include all of the hikers in our prayers? Please don't forget the SOBO's and FLIPPERS! They have some tough hiking ahead...

Thanks for your prayers, and God Bless!
