"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
Friday, May 28, 2004 Tonight is my last night of sleep without anti-malaria medication in my system. I have weird enough dreams regularly already ... can't wait to see what this stuff does to me.
Spent a wonderful day at the zoo with the boys ... a celebration of Schroedter's first day of summer vacation. He woke up at 7 am and, still lying in bed, started shouting "WOOOOOOOOOO Summer!!!!!" over and over again. (This after two nights ago, Hayden stayed up until 11 pm lying in his crib shouting "ALLLLLL RIGHHHHHHHT!!!!!" over and over again). Too funny.
I've IMd with Mackinnon a couple times today. She's getting really excited about going, too. She arrives three days after I do, so I'll be able to meet her there and already have my feet on the ground somewhat.
Prayer list -- Jean Nyere (ECM alum Rob Slevin's grandmother), who is quite ill and probably nearing death. Also Jolly Stewart (Cecily's mom), who just had some minor surgery.

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
