I miss you mom and I have to things to tell you tonight and will reply to comments every night. First my goals for the week. 1. Not pick my fingernails/skin. 2. Try to keep my mouth shut if I really want say something when arguing. Can you also tell dad to take my watch to a professional to fix it because dad broke my last one and don’t want it to happen again and thanks for everything love you and good night mom.
Hi David, I’m Michelle, Elijah’s adopted aunt. I hope you are having a great time. I hope the rest of your trip will bring you wonderful memories and friendships. Try to get some good sleep. Have a great night David.
Thank you for your prayers and everything
So, I realized I didn’t tell you in our first note, but we are your prayer partners for this week. Yes, we signed up to pray for you! No one had to beg us to do it! We wanted to! We believe in you and all that you can do this week at camp and going forward!!
We are so excited for the opportunities that you will be presented with this week! We’ll be praying for you all week. We can’t wait to read about the amazing things you get to do. How was Day 2? Pretty amazing, we hope!
If you have specific prayer requests for us, leave us a note and we’ll be all over it! What school do you go to? Mr. Luban and I both work in schools. I work at Oakwood Intermediate (in Allendale) and Mr. Luban works at the Careerline Tech Center in Holland (he teaches kids how to weld). What is your favorite subject in school (besides lunch – LOL!)?
Have a great Monday tomorrow!
~ Mr & Mrs Luban (Dave & Gwen) 🙂
Hey guys sorry for late reply I am having a great time at camp we did zip lineing,and tomahawks throwing and now watching face your giants this was today. Also you guys want to know what school I go it’s EK high school and my favorite subject is math.
So glad you’re having a great time at camp. It all sounds like so much fun. I hear EK is a really good school. Math is Mr. Luban’s favorite subject too!
Thank you and we are coming home today
Those are great goals! I am proud of you and know you can do it. I hope you had a nice day today. We went tubing and it was a lot of fun.
I hope you are having a great time and getting to make some new friends. I really miss you and love you so much!
Love Mom & Dad
P.S. I will be looking for you on the Facebook Live tomorrow!
Hi mom I did made a few new friends James, kyron, And roilinen today we did zip lineing, and tomahawks tohrowing and now whatching face your giants and good night and love you mom see you when I get to the church.
Those are great goals for the week. My mom always told me, “If I can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all!” It was super hard sometimes!! You can do it though. Sometimes when I want to keep from saying something I shouldn’t, I sit on my hands. I know that seems funny and my hands don’t have anything to do with my mouth – but it works for me. 🙂
Hey, I just saw the pictures from today — what a great picture of you on the horse!! Next time, smile!! LOL!!
Have a great day tomorrow!!
Mr and Mrs Luban
I hope you are having fun and meeting some new friends.
I’m thinking a lot about you and miss you. Mom and I are praying for you and hope you get closer to God during this trip. You have made some good goals and know that you can do anything you put your mind to.
I will take your watch in to get it fixed before we pick you up on Sunday.
I love you!

Hi David. It’s me Michelle, Elijah’s adopted aunt again. I got to see through pictures everyone with their horses. You guys are looking like professional riders. I hope this trip keeps you excited for the next day. Before you know it you will blink and it will be over😭. Have a wonderful night David.
I will thank you for inspiring me
We hope you had a GREAT Tuesday! We continue to think about you and pray that all your hopes and dreams for this week are coming true! I was telling a friend today about camp and the opportunities you’re having there – plus the chance to learn about and hang out with horses – it made my friend jealous!! 🙂
Have a great day tomorrow (Wednesday). Live God. Love God. Laugh with God.
Mr and Mrs Luban
Thanks I will all of that for you guys
Hi sweet boy!
I saw you on the Facebook Live today. I like how you showed where everything was. I am so glad you are having a good time. I hope the weather was food for tubing. Did you have like that? Maybe we could all go together?
I continue to pray for you and all the boys each day. I hope you are really connecting with each other and learning some good skills. I love you so much!
Hi mom it was raining so we did not go tubing that day love mom
Hey david it’s me Elise i miss you love you hope you are having fun. Love Elise
Hi Elise I love you and miss you to and see you Sunday
Hey buddy! I just read all of your replies. I am proud of you for taking the time to respond to everyone. That is very thoughtful. Tomorrow is the big day when you begin your hike! I know you will do great. I love you so much!
Hi mom we are on our way home can’t wait to see you guys love you see in an hour
Hi David! I can’t believe how fast this week is going, tomorrow is Friday already! I hope you have a great day and an even better weekend! Glad to see you’re making some new friends. We’ve been praying for that for you. We hope you’ve been able to see God’s hand in your daily activities this week. He has been with you!! We hope the hiking has been going well and can’t wait to see more pictures. Keep up the good work … you are doing awesome!
Happy Saturday! We know you’re on the trail! Hope it’s been a great couple of days! We know your camp time is coming to an end…but God will ALWAYS be there for you. All you have to do is reach out and talk to him. That isn’t hard – it’s like having a conversation with an imaginary friend. Just talk to him – He will talk back in His own quiet (and sometimes VERY obvious) way! You have a GREAT group of people – both adults and now your new friends – surrounding you. We too will continue to pray for you long after camp is done. If you ever have specific prayer requests, feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com and ask us to pray for you.
It has been great watching you grow through the pictures, videos and stories this week. Keep growing and becoming the person God designed you to be!
Mr and Mrs Luban
Hi sweet boy!
I am not sure if you will get this or not but you can read it later. It is the last night of your trip and I get to pick you up tomorrow at noon. I am so excited to see you! I bet when you get home you will take a long hot shower and a nap. You must be exhausted! I want you to know how proud of you we are. I also want you to be proud of yourself! This has been a long journey and I hope it brought you closer to God and to believing in yourself! I hope your last night is awesome! I love you so much!
See you in an hour mom can’t wait to tell about my trip and my new friends and stuff love you
hey David how ya been doin buddy just sayin hi and sayin thanks for all of the fun at camp and thank you so much for helping other people at the camp
I hope you’re doing good during all this Coronavirus stuff happening in our state right now. It’s kinda weird, isn’t it. I believe I read you are doing school virtually. Good for you. That’s a tough job! I hope you’re keeping up and I’ll be praying that you can use some of the tools you learned at camp to be kind with each other in your home – your siblings and your parents. It isn’t always easy with the work/stress load, with everyone being home at the same time, etc. But…………if you look at it like a blessing – that you “Get” to be home with your siblings, and you “Get” to spend more time with your parents, and you “Get” to communicate with friends via Zoom/the Internet, “Get” to get an education from home. . .then they start to look like blessings and not as inconveniences. You should feel very blessed to be able to stay home and do school from home. Help each other out. Be the “big” brother and the leader in the house. Have a positive attitude – we all need that right now! Find some good in every day.
We will continue to pray that you work toward reaching your goals (Argue less and talk more) and that you’ll get along better with your siblings. You can do it! Treat them the way you would want to be treated – KINDLY! 🙂
Have a great week!
