    Cooper-
    Hey I wanted to let you know I’m one of your prayer partners. My name is Kellie. I have already been praying for you and will continue to as you start on this trip. I actually teach 6th grade, and I love it and getting to know kids your age. I know God has amazing things planned for you on this trip! I can’t wait to see and hear all about it!

    Hello coops!!

    I’m glad I didn’t miss you! Tonight all the bus drivers came over for dinner and a pool party. But the boys and Zoe went to grandma Mokma‘s house. It was really fun to see you talking today I’m glad you’re loving the horses! I feel like that was also Nolan‘s favorite thing! How are things going? How has the food been? Kiptyn said to say that he loves you! I didn’t get to see you on the zip lineBut it sounds like you went all the way through with it! I’m definitely not surprised and we are both so proud of you! We love you very much and pray for you all the time!
