Road Trip


Duane & I were looking forward to this trip for a number of reasons.
-we were looking forward to spending time with our traveling companions
-were going to see a brother and a nephew
-connecting with the Shirk’s again
-sitting under the sound of a very wise teacher, learning, growing, etc.

We weren’t dissappointed, to say the least.


We enjoyed being tourists on Friday.  Thanks to Eugene’s Aunt & Uncle, we had wheels for the day and got around quite well.  First stop – the original facebook. 


This little girl is such a cheese. 



We got a free tour of the Heinese Cheese place and a load of free samples.


We stayed in Little Switzerland a.k.a. Sugar Creek.  Learned so so much.  We couldn’t take it all in.  I’d try to take notes, but then I’d miss the next thing he was saying.  RVL is an amazing teacher.  The Word became more alive. 






The weekend was so inpsiring
–  I came to a better understanding of the word Shalom and long for the return of Shalom to this Chaos we live in.
– Realized again that God doesn’t want any to perish.  He even wanted the Egyptians AND Pharoah to know him.
– So grateful the just the finger of God is more powerful then any force of evil.
– I will never be able to experience Communion in quite the same way.  Jesus took the 5th cup – the cup of God’s wrath.


The weekend made me want to become a disciple.  It definitely gave me more of a desire for the Word.  The Old Testament is way more exciting then I ever thought.  So much good stuff.  I want to take it all in.  RVL has scripture memorized like crazy.  I want to get the Word in.


This little girl was so exhausted by the end of the day.  She’s pretending to sleep at the dinner table. 


Traveling in the R-V thanks to my grandfather.  The little miss loved the “bus”.  We all did actually.  It was an awesome way to travel.


Orion must have something powerful to say – probably just expressing his feelings about the phillies losing.


It was so fun to be able to connect with the Shirks a bit.  It was much to short but well worth our time.  Got to see and hear more about there world.
