Lamplighter

I just wanted to say, THANK YOU to everyone who supported Caleb, both through their purchase of Lamplighter books and audio dramas and in prayer, in order for him to attend The Guild. 
Eric and he left on Friday, July 13th.  They took a red eye flight to Connecticut where they met up with Grammy Maria (Eric's mom).  Lots of visiting and reconnecting on Saturday.  Sunday the three of them enjoyed the scenic, two-hourish car ride to the Mohonk Mountain House, a Victorian castle in New York's countryside, where the Guild was to take place.
Go here to see what it's all about! The video clip on the left explains the Guild's mission.  The video clip on the right does too, but also has a quick clip of Caleb in it. :-)
The Guild ran from Sunday to Friday.  You can visit Caleb's blog to read more in depth of all that he experienced.  {Definitely check out the audio clip that features his voice!}
Suffice it to say, it was life-changing for him, producing a newer, deeper passion for Christ, and a desire to pour out all his giftedness to the credit of God in all he does to the glory of God.
I am so thankful that he could experience this apprenticeship.
After the close of the Guild, Eric picked him up and enjoyed the car ride with Caleb immensely as he heard all about what he did, what he learned, who he met.  Once back in Connecticut, Eric showed him all around his young boyhood stomping grounds - showing him the house he grew up in, the store his dad owned (which is no longer Marcel's Variety, of course,) his high school.  They visited with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins.  They really had fun and made a lot of memories. 
They returned VERY late (or maybe that's REALLY early) on Tuesday morning.  Matt, Hannah and I stayed up until I had to pick them up at the Shuttle drop.  We were drooping as it got later and later, but once Eric and Caleb were home, we got our second wind laughing and hearing about all the stories.  We were so glad to have them home.  We went to bed exhausted, but fulfilled.
The next morning we left for the Oregon Coast.  That's my next post.
