Thank You Letter to Mrs. Lee

Mrs. Lee,
I know you are always very busy so I thought I would write you an e-mail telling you about my trip to North Little Rock.

We had a flat tire, and a nail in another on the way down. But the Lord kept his hand upon us, and he sent a highway patrol officer by to help, and one of my distant cousins lived close by and came and helped us get to a place to get new tires.
After we arrived, we went with Seth to a Praise singing outreach for juvenile deliqents at a jail. It was really beautiful to see young people that were reaching out to other young people who need the Lord.

Saturday was the boat trip...a 90 foot boat, with 50 awesome young people aboard-- we stopped at an island on the lake, and partied on the boat and walked around the island all afternoon. At night everybody gathered around a camp fire, and sang songs, and testified about where the Lord found them, and what he was doing in there lives. There we were all of us huddled together trying to stay warm, and the sun was setting---gorgeous! Everybody praising the Lord. Seth was the first to testify...he said, "I don't know why the Lord chose me, out of all the billons of people on the earth, just like one of these rocks on the shore...he chose me. I just want to live for him with all of my heart. Don't hold back anything from him." We were all in tears.

I just wanted to tell you those two things, because it was a very special time, and I wanted to thank you again for letting me go.

Amy Ruth
