Assembly Required

By Scot Pollok on

God's greatest gifts come with some assembly required. Not to be cute or cliche, I think that is where Liza and I are today.  Recently, as I bragged, my sweet wife, in the midst of her pain, arranged for some special Father's Day gifts for me. One of them was a beautiful gas grill...

Declaring Dependence

By Scot Pollok on

What a day to celebrate as an American. We should be grateful to God for all the blessings we enjoy in our great country. I am. We are.  As I sat with Jesus this morning, I read in 2 Chronicles, according to my plan through the Bible this year. While 2 Chronicles may not be the first stop...

How Are You?

By Scot Pollok on

How Are You?  It's the right question to ask. Not much else to say. Nothing wrong with the question. The problem is, it's really difficult to answer. I've been asking Liza that question. It just feels right. It is right to ask. But she doesn't have an answer. Correction: she would like to...

Back Home

By Scot Pollok on

I left camp yesterday about noon, so grateful for how God moved among the lives of students and adults, even my own. Only God knows for sure, but I think about 20 students or more trusted in Jesus for their salvation. About 30 students were baptized yesterday morning in the Nueces River. It was...

Plodding is Frustrating

By Scot Pollok on

There can be great frustration in the day-to-day, hour by hour plodding of a difficult season. This is compounded with chronic pain. Liza is still battling well (and I am extremely proud of her) but she is frustrated with her lack of strength, the relative progress thus far (which is measured in...

While I'm Away

By Scot Pollok on

Thank you for your continued prayers for my family, especially as I am away from them. As some have asked, ministry here at camp is going well. The Lord is working and kids are responding. The first night several put their trust in Jesus for the very first time. Perhaps more the second night...

Continued Prayers

By Scot Pollok on

I'm still out in the wilderness two hours west of San Antonio, but I've been talking with my sweet wife online and I got to make a land line phone call last night and spoke with her and the kids.  She is still struggling to sleep well. And her neck pain, nerve pain on her head, headache...

From the Exact Middle of Nowhere

By Scot Pollok on

Well I made it out to camp. I left our home at about 12:40 and arrived at Camp Eagle at 7:00PM.  I got to talk with Liza by phone before I lost all cell service. She was sitting in the chair, had already eaten (drank) some soup and was watching television with the family. We reorganized...

A Down Day

By Scot Pollok on

Today, Friday, has been a down day, not in the sense of great pain or discouragement, but in the sense of activity. That is a welcomed change to the past few days. Liza is still in much the same state, but she laid down for an extended nap today. She's been shaking a lot since yesterday, her...
