    Maybe it’s that “dry” heat that people say is always so much better. Hot is hot!

  2. blogprophet says:

    come on, Trey, you mean you are still legalistic, old school, small-minded, and ignorant to believe in Hell.

    you need to emerge yourself out of that, brother. it’s all about Grace. God would not send anyone to Hell. at least not for very long

    (sarcasm intended)

  3. TREY MORGAN says:


    Maybe God DOESN’T send people to hell anymore, maybe just maybe, He sends them to Childress, Texas.

    Hmm, haven’t thought about that!

    It was pretty hot here yesterday, too! But, Trey, just think of poor Bruce and Amanda moving from Alaska to Tulia next month! They may think they have moved to hell!


  5. Jeff Slater says:

    Actually, that person was right. Childress IS hotter than hell.

    It’s only supposed to be in the mid-80’s over the next few days in Hell, Michigan.

    They have a great 10 mile race in August called “Run Thru Hell.”

    And yes, every winter Hell freezes over.

    We have been averaging 106 – 114 for the past 3 weeks. I talked to dad last week and he said they were grumbling about 98. I told him “we considered that a cold front.”


    PS At Pine Springs this week for camp.

    Ha! It has been hot! I have a freind that just moved here from El Campo, Texas and compared yesterday and today to a “convection oven”. It still the best place to live in the whole world!!!

    Brandon: If God sends people to Childress Texas instead of Hell? Then why are you their? Thier is also a Hell Michigan and not many people live thier! :)

    It is in the 80’s at home in Gallup. Unfortunately, I’m presenting enuring 99 degrees and humidity in Arlington, Texas.

    My introduction to Childress was the summer of 1997, when we had 74 straight days of 100 degrees plus, including one week where the highs were all over 115. That just happened to be the week when my car had broken down.

  11. Fillmycup says:

    Come to Wisconsin then. 60 degrees for the next two days. We are always looking for preachers here…oh, you will need to bring your own support though 😉

  12. willow says:

    wow!!! it is hot, but i’d really rather have the heat as to have the tornadoes that are tearing up the middle of the country… i guess we can all find something good about being almost as hot as hell and Hell, Michigan!

  13. preacherman says:

    I feel like I live on the surface of the sun. HOT!!!!!!!!
    It was 106 today.
    Crazy hot.
    I don’t even want to think about August. :(

  14. Cornelius Crew says:

    I better your mom doesn’t approve of you talking like that!!! Ha ha!

  15. TREY MORGAN says:

    Cornelius … I’ll be you are 100% right on that!

    Just be grateful for air-conditioning….and dry-fit clothing!!

    Was Monalea talking about Pine Springs Camp in New Mexico? If so that was the very first summer camp I attended as a kid. My parents took me when they went to work there for the summer – the first year I was too young to stay in the cabins and I bawled because I thought I was a big boy. I also remember the year there was a big forest fire that burned that area but didn’t touch the camp. I love that place. I’d be jealous of Monalea right now, but I’m afraid I might get sent to Childress.

    In two weeks my family and I head for Shefield, TX for the Pacos River Encampment. No A/C there. But even though; it’s got to be close to heaven with all the workings of God that go on there. Outlook shows 100+ every day that week. I’m looking forward to the no hot water showers. It’s all worth it.

    Have a blessed summer!

  18. Monalea says:

    Steve V,

    I am indeed at Pine Springs. The wind blew terrible here today. We had to postpone the water fight. What cabin were you in and I’ll look for you name on the wall?


  19. TREY MORGAN says:

    Steve, I’m glad Monaela covered for me, because I missed this comment. Sorry. She is lucky enough to be close to Pine Sprins where she can go. Unfortunately I live close to the came that is even hotter than Childress. Arg!

    I’ve heard the Pacos River Encampment is a great encampment. We’re going to the Red River Family Encampment, mainly due to the fact that it’s in Red River.


  20. Steve V. says:

    I was in the last boys cabin away from the latrine but that was back in the late 70’s. The last time I was there was eighty-three. I thought they didn’t allow girls to cross the boys bridge? Good luck in the seach let me know if you find my name.

    I have come to love P R Encamp. My wife’s Gr. Grandfather was one of the founders and members of his family still work there every summer for the past 63 years. It’s rough but well worth it.

    Enjoy Red River!

    Steve V

    I am one of the cabin checkers so I have access to the boys cabins once a day. I checked the last cabin for your name and later found out that the camp burned way back when so that is why I couldn’t locate your name.


  22. steve v. says:

    I checked out the camp web sight and noticed a lot of things different. My how things can change in 25 years. The place looks great.

    I hope yall have a glorious session this summer. Your doing great work in the Kingdom over there!
