FWalk

okay, i'm tired of looking at the protest post, and my protest was incorrectly aimed at the frantz children since it's mostly my place of employment that blocked the video. anyway...
i'm doing a special entry on my brother, raymond forrest walker, the second. he's 29 years old, graduated from samford university with a degree in math and has taught high school math for 7 years now. 3 of those years have been here in chattanooga where he also coaches baseball. everyone call him forrest, and some people call him f-walk. he's worked at camp vesper point for something like 28 years...okay not really. this is his 11th summer, so he's become a sort of legend up there. kids that were in my cabin when i was a counselor are now working there and say it's weird working with him when he worked when he was a camper. people that i don't even know will somehow discover in a conversation that he's my brother and just freak out b/c they know and love him so much
anyway, i was looking at cvp's website today and found these pictures of him and thought i would sort of tribute his time there. i used to work up there (summers of 97-2001) and he is just amazing in the presence of these kids. it's like his switch it turned all the way to "on" and he shines like he doesn't anywhere else. the best part is when he does the talk for the night. my goodness! the Holy Spirit just flows that that man's life like no one i've ever heard! everyone always tells him that he should go to seminary. i don't think it's such a bad idea.
the first one is him with a cute kid on the dock, obviously. the second one is him playing with some boys on the mini-playground type thing down at the waterfront that's in the shape of an ark. (the playground is, not the waterfront...)
here he is giving waterfront instructions to the entire camp. he's standing on top of the blob tower to make himself seem more powerful, even though he doesn't need to since every camper that attends cvp knows who forrest walker is! okay just kidding. he's going to be the director one day...

blogger isn't letting post anymore pictures in this entry...and it's not letting me post anymore pictures at all...not even in a new post. boooo on blogger!!!!

NO! that's forrest! who is this jason lawhorn person anyway? i don't believe he exists...

okay fine. i admit that i wondered if that was him and thought about how embarrassed i would be if it wasn't him, but i just kept going like i knew what i was talking about...but it looks like him! it's him!!....isn't it?
