Thankfully, we are in the “stretch run” of our summer home assignment. Since June 11, we’ve shared our ministry update in 8 of our supporting churches on Sundays. We’ve shared with pastors or with pastors and interested members of 4 others of our supporting churches as well. We have one more ministry update to share on a Sunday in one other of our supporting churches in NE Texas before arriving in Dallas later that day (August 13). I had not originally planned on visiting that church, but it worked out at the last minute to add them to our itinerary. We’ve only missed out on two of our churches that just didn’t fit into the logistics of our extensive route. We’re at about 7,500 miles driven since leaving home on May 13. Praise God for good health thus far and the stamina to make it through this far. I’m amazed at how well I’ve felt overall. (Unfortunately, Beth’s latex allergy has gotten worse as she has now become allergic to polyester!)
Currently, we’re staying a few days with ministry partners in Lancaster County, PA. We’re also visiting with Beth’s family about an hour to the east of here. We’ll be attending a nephew’s wedding on Friday of this week and then following that up with a few days of family reunion with Beth’s family in east-central PA. Cameron is flying in tomorrow for the wedding and time with family. We’ll be driving him back to Indiana on the 9th and then loading his stuff up and taking him into Moody for the fall semester of his 2nd year on the 10th. We’ll head to Texas on the 11th.
We’re enjoying the beauty of the area here, and this evening we took a leisurely stroll up the road and visited the home and garden of our host’s parents. Here are a few pics I snapped along our walk and visit.
