Riverbed Encampment

Before the sun rises, Cindy and Patrick Kennard wake their three daughters, fold their cots in a Sunday school classroom and pack their lives into suitcases. 

“This is an every Sunday ritual,” said Cindy Kennard. 

“It’s something that we do every week and so it just becomes natural.
