I’m very sleepy as it is late and I didn’t sleep much last night (even though I am feeling better). However, I think we may be without internet for some time. Therefore, I’ll attempt to give an update.
After spending a couple of days in Vernal, Utah, we enjoyed attending the morning service at the local A/G church and sharing in a window in both the main service and kid’s church. We also had a couple of nice meals with the pastor and his family. It was exciting to see how this church is reaching its community!
Later Sunday afternoon we headed out to Roosevelt. There we enjoyed a pot luck and the opportunity to share about our ministry and a message from scripture. The people of this church we so friendly.
This morning we met the pastor from Roosevelt, his wife, grandbaby and a member of the church for breakfast. Soon after that we hit the road. We headed south. On our drive today I overheard some interesting conversation from the back seat including, “I have hair like Daddy’s. See this? I’m bald!” “I am not a fossil!” “I am not Dr. Pain!” Yes, all these were uttered by Hudson.
We did take a break from all the driving and visited Arches National Park. We took in the inspiring views and pointed out what we “saw” when we looked at the rocks. In one rock formation I saw a giant hand; Wesley saw Jesus. We also enjoyed a brief hike and a stop at the visitor’s center.
Tonight we pulled into Cortez, NM. Chris lived here when he was in first and second grade. Driving through town brought back memories. Tomorrow morning we might try to drive by his old house, before we head off to the Faith Comes By Hearing Campus near Albuquerque, NM, our next stop on the road trip. We will be based from there as we visit various churches in the NM area for the next two and a half weeks.
P.S. I tried to post this last night, but the internet wasn’t working well. So, I am posting this now, on Tue. morning.
