I have a ticket to Oshkosh available. One of our members had to back out at the last minute. I've already posted it to Facebook, but it seems no one is interested. So I still have it. If you know someone who wants it, let me know!

I'd like to recover the $165 we spent on it, but if someone has a hardship case, we can prolly work something out. I don't want to see this ticket go to waste!

The ticket is no longer available. It was something of a miracle too! There's a kid in our club who really wanted to go, but his parents did not want to let him. One of my staff members made one last attempt to talk his parents into letting him come with us, mentioning that we had a ticket that was going to go to waste. And they agreed! They are very protective of this kid, so I was astonished!

I gave them the packing list and emailed the medical release form. They'll bring him in the morning, and we're off!

The kid doesn't know yet. Their plan is to wake him up in the morning and tell him "Your stuff's all packed, you're going to Oshkosh." He really wants to come with us too, so that should wake him right up.

Please pray that the Lord protects this child while we have him under our care.

His parents told him on Saturday night before he went to bed. At first he thought they were pulling his leg, but then he realized that he was really going. Needless to say, he had a hard time getting to sleep! He showed up at 6:30am Sunday, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, and all smiles.

He had a great time, and his parents later expressed that they were so happy they changed their minds and let him go.
