Jordan's Rock

Jordan's Rock is a large outcropping of smooth rock amidst tall brown grass and a few trees. I understand it has been used for hundreds of years and the missionaries used it back in the 1930's.  At that time there was a creek close by which was used for baptism but the riverbed dried up so it is primarily used as a place for celebration.  Ian's birthday is June 9.  Each year that Dan and Ian are here, the team celebrates on the rock -- Jordan's Rock. This year was no different.  We had a fire and roasted hot dogs and fixed s'mores. Of course, Leonard prepared a fabulous birthday cake which we carefully transported.  We took pictures, ate, laughed, and visited... And Miss Ellie was in charge.  Our 24person transport bus made it most of the way but the plowed, hardened ground prevented us from driving all the way to the rock. So we had to walk over very rough terrain for a short distance but it was worth it.  The sunset was beautiful.  As the fire died down the students sang a number of songs and Mr. Merritt closed our celebration with a prayer. Ian wouldn't have had it any other way (except for his mama to have been there, too.)
