We are in Kentucky tonight! The morning felt like a normal trip morning as we scurried around, finishing last-minute preparations. After the guys finished packing the trailer, Grandad and Grandma came over. Even though the temperatures were chilly, we gathered together outside while Grandad prayed for us. We said good-byes and headed off for church. Our dear fellowship was glad to see our family, and we had a blessed worship service. Around 11 a.m., we were officially on the road.
The 500-mile drive passed quite uneventfully, and we only made one stop for gas. Mom is a pro at making sandwiches in the van! We listened to two sermons and enjoyed talking together and watching the scenery.
After we unloaded at the hotel, Dad and John went to fill up with diesel across the street. When they came back, Dad made some comment by which I could tell we had a â€œproblemâ€. Dad felt Jesus prompting him to look over the trailer, and he discovered an axle on our trailer is going bad, thus the tire is becoming bald. We planned on driving 800 miles tomorrow, but it looks as if our plans may change. We will need to find a place to find trailer tires. Dad will be watching the tire carefully as we drive tomorrow, and heâ€™ll be placing a call into the trailer place in Kansas City to get their advice. A big â€œpraise the Lordâ€ is we donâ€™t need to be in Orlando until Tuesday night, so we have an extra day. Please pray for safety as we continue: number one we want to wear the tire down as much as possible without it blowing, and number two the half-used spare might make it the rest of the way to Orlando.
Thank you for your prayers!
Sarah for the rest
