Faster than a Prairie Fire with a Tail Wind

There was evening and morning, the fifth day … and it is good.

ERGLI, Latvia – Building a new main lodge at Eagle’s Wings Camp is not as momentous as the fifth day of creation but it is remarkable to see the progress after only five days.  Christmas Valley Community Church and local teams are working “faster than a prairie fire with a tail wind” (as my Texas friends might say).  The results are wonderful, the workers happy and the rest of us are thrilled with the progress.  See for yourself.
