  5. Hi Austin,
    We’re so proud of you! You scaled the wall, great accomplishment. Sounds like you’re making new friends and are off to a great start. Keep taking that next step outside your comfort zone, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish. We’ll be praying for you this week and anxiously wait to hear what God does in your life. Love you bud, Grandma Jana and Grandpa Scott.

  6. Looks like you climbed a wall, played some fun games and started working with horses today! Sounds like a ton of fun. We read that you also set some short and long term goals. We will be praying specifically that God seals those goals in your heart and that you can lean on Him as you set out to reach them!

  11. Hi Austin,
    I got a chance to catch up on your activities tonight. Wow, looks like you’re having an amazing time and learning so much! I saw the video with Wilbur 😁 really proud of how you stepped up and became a leader, but didn’t try to take over. You’re very good at that! I bet you’re learning a lot about yourself that you didn’t know. I can see God is at work in your life, that’s so exciting. Now you’re off on a really long hike and you’ll be learning so much more. Keep up the good work, keep learning and growing. We’re so proud of you.
    Love Grandma Jana
    PS the kitchen is missing your hourly visits 😉🥰

    1. 😂 so exited to get mopping. I had a really Great time. God has held my hand through this whole trip and he taught me so much about myself I didn’t even know.

  12. Good morning!
    Something to get you thinking…..

    Small steps in the right direction are better then big steps in the wrong direction. I was praying for you and our families and the awesome staff you are with, directly after I saw this. God speaks to us in many ways.

  13. Austin,
    Hey bud it looks like you are having a really good time and doing great things. I am proud of the hard work and leadership you are doing, keep it up! I love and miss you.


  14. Well…it’s in the middle of the night on your last night there! Praying that The Lord will take and seal all the good from this week in your heart and in your life! Remember THIS week, Austin.
