It is monsoon season in Arizona, and so Flagstaff has been receiving a tremendous amount of rain over the last few weeks. Rain in the (high) desert! What a beautiful reminder this is of the Lord’s grace and provision for us in the difficulties and challenges of life.

We had a lot of great family time during the time away in July–thanks for your prayers for that! We spent time in the mountains of New Mexico, on the beach in California, at Disneyland (the kids’ Christmas present), and working on our property. The highlight for me was six-year-old Angie professing her faith in Christ as her savior!

This last week the IBC staff had our annual retreat in Phoenix. We spent five days several days worshiping, planning, and preparing for the school year together. I am incredibly thankful for the gains we made in staff unity, which has been a challenge the last couple of years.

We currently have six new students accepted for fall semester and several more still attempting to finish their applications. Would you pray for a full and motivated freshman class?

We are preparing for the upcoming school year (classes begin August 27th). One of our current needs is the ability to help our students with additional scholarship funds. Would you consider making giving a gift to our new scholarship crowdfunding campaign? You can do so at

Pray for Sarah and the kids as they get back into homeschool this week and attempt to get back into a normal routine. All four kids will be in school this year. We are grateful that we have all had good health, other than suffering from some seasonal allergies.

Thank you for your faithful prayers and support!
