Someone supposedly once said "cleanliness is next to godliness." If this holds true, your Passion/sixsteps family is feeling pretty godly tonight after an all day cleaning marathon at the Passion House. Yeah, we do our own cleaning around here. Pretty glamorous, huh? Today it was upstairs vs. downstairs as we drug everything into the halls (most people have a room to themselves, given that we are in an old house), uncovering all the "gunk" noboby wants to see.

But have no fear, everything is now squeaky-clean from the baseboards to the ceilings--and everything in between.

We have an amazing team (don't underestimate our small size!) and a really spiffy, fresh-smelling house to work in as we begin the long sprint to Passion 07. This pic came at the end of the day's efforts, and I didn't tell everyone we'd be posing for the Blog, so forgive our appearance.

We're off for a Memorial Day break. Hope yours is filled with friends, family and laughter.

  • Wow... I'm doing my best to pick myself off of the floor now I'm laughing so hard. It's good to see things are going well in the House though and that everyone's having fun! Hope things are going great as we venture towards CD and DVD releases and Passion07 is looming!!!

  • hahaha, you know,I recently cleaned up my apartment, where I live with two other (christian) students...I feel so blessed that I have 2 christian roommates. They go to the same college as where I go which happens to be the only christian college in the Netherlands and has been chosen as the best college in the Netherlands by the students and the government! (www.che.nl) I'm so blessed!
    In about 30 days I will hit the US again! Can't wait to see all my friends and to start my work as a campcounselor during this summer! Maine is a beautiful state!You should all go there during the summer! :-)The coast is so beautiful, and I live here in the netherlands near the coast, 5 minutes away from the beach, but the coast in Maine is so rough, so beautiful! Anyway I have to stop daydreaming and continue with what I was doing! Much Love, Jacoline

  • The picture looks great even if you weren't posing for the blog! I'm sure it feels great to have the house all clean. When I have to clean i don't always like it, but it does feel good to do it. Have a great weekend!

  • Hey Louie! Great picture!! I was just stopping by to ask if you would please pray for my friend Brett and his friend Brian. They are setting out in a week or so on a mission journey around the United States. They have a website that can far better explain their trip than I can, so if you have a chance, please check it out... it's www.narrowroadtour.com. Thanks a bunch! I hope your Memorial Day weekend is a great one! :)

  • Hi Louie,

    Just wanted to share a good memory from 7:22, back when you were still teaching there...there was this time I sang really, really loud, and then you got up and bragged about how good the worship was.

    Have a great Passion '07!
