We’ve finally reached the end of our time here in Dallas. The past week we’ve just enjoyed some time here at the CAM Center apartment getting a LOT of shopping done, car maintenance and a few visits in as well. We rested a good bit and feel pretty good. The trip has topped 9,000 miles and we’ll be over 10,000 trip miles by the time we reach home.
The Highlander is holding up well. The oil is changed now for the third time this trip (not including the one the day before we left home!). The timing belt, water pump and serpentine belt has all been replaced as routine maintenance so we hope we’re in good shape for many more miles to come.
On Monday we’re only going a couple hours so we can visit with supporters and good friends at Fort Hood. On Tuesday we’ll be heading to McAllen on the border and we’ll probably stay two nights there so we’ll have time to pick up our Mexican auto insurance policy (which ironically we always buy in the U.S.) and to pick up any last minute things we may need to purchase before going back. There’s so many things we can’t get down in Mexico, we try to be sure to pick up as many of the most important things as possible. There’s some optional goodies in there as well, of course!
We sure would appreciate your prayers as we drive the 1,000+ miles home and for our expected border crossing on Thursday morning. We’re anxious to get home and settled and back to work and ministry. I hope to post more regularly on our blog here once we get back into routine.
Thanks for praying for our safety in travel and a smooth crossing.
