Today is day 28 of 90 of HA2015.
It looks like another week has passed since the subject of my last post, a certain Humpback Bridge in western Virginia.
Since then, we’ve stayed 1 night with a long-time college friend and her family in Beckley, WV and 6 consecutive nights in the home of a retired couple in Ashland, OH. Yes, 6 nights. That is hospitality on a level that just about tops out the American scale. We have greatly appreciated their openness and generosity to let us call their home, our home for this past week.
In this time we’ve spoken in our supporting church in a combined Sunday school, the main service, the Sunday night service and participated in the Wednesday night prayer meeting before scooting over to another supporting church 9 miles away and chatting with some members there for another couple hours at the conclusion of their prayer meeting. We’ve had dinner appointments, a breakfast appointment with one of my fellow MTS online students, lunch appointments, and appointments in passing.
We’ve had more appointments than I can remember and we’re about to see those appointments and raise you one. So, we’re heading out from Ashland in a few minutes and heading to Ostrander, OH to enjoy an overnight visit with another college-era friend and her family. I don’t think we’ve seen our friend since graduation 25 years ago, and we know we have never met her husband and kids. We’ve “known” them through Facebook for the past 5 years. It will be great to finally bring the digital images and words to face-to-face experience.
Tomorrow we’ll be moving on to Millersburg, OH and another Sunday presentation at our supporting church there. Monday takes us south of Washington, D.C. to Lusby, MD.
The ABCDs are looking forward to visiting with supporters there as well as an expected trip into the National Mall. I don’t mind shopping, but I’ve heard it’s mostly just a lot of walking, and many of the items there aren’t even for sale, except for a few politicians. I don’t have that kind of money, so we’ll just stick to looking around.
Thanks for keeping us in your prayers as we travel.
