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...

Off to Camp Soon

By on

Since the day we scheduled surgery several months ago, we have been talking and thinking about this weekend. At one point, Liza thought she might be able to make it, but it is a wise decision to stay home. So, one of the hard family decisions we had to make was that Liza and the kids will not go...

Operative Report

By Scot Pollok on

Our great family doctor printed an official operative report from Dr. Kim. I received it today. I will quote its brief contents because they were both informative and encouraging to Liza and I tonight. The numbers and descriptions, dictated by Dr. Kim, are insightful, cringe-worthy and strangely...

Back to Work...for a second

By Scot Pollok on

Liza had a few visitors today, all of them blessings. She's now in bed, hopefully taking a long nap filled with good sleep. The kids went to a friends house again today and I went back to work for just a bit.  I met with our staff for a few minutes of update and prayer. That was a surprise...
