Week #6: Unposted Pictures

This will conclude our final “unposted pictures” post.

As I reflect on that last week, it’s truly amazing all the Lord Jesus did.

  • Like I mentioned last week, Mary was one, sick young lady, but she only had two days of really feeling awful, and then she just had a normal cold. The Lord spared all the rest of us from getting it.
  • We crossed back into the United States safely.
  • We made it to the Mother/Daughter tea in enough time to set up and have some fellowship before the actual start time.
  • We traveled many miles from northern Washington to southern California, and the Lord again protected us.
  • One thing I don’t believe was mentioned, is we barely limped home with our fresh water tank. We were losing our fresh water rather rapidly at the end. By Sunday, we were conserving the water greatly. Almost by a miracle, we made it home with enough water. Soon, the guys are going to pull the tanks and figure out what was wrong, so that we’ll be set for our next trip.
  • The weather was gorgeous for our re-scheduled Flagstaff conference.
  • Our drive home was quite uneventful as we drove through New Mexico, Colorado, and Kansas (Kansas is a very long state width wise). It was a wonderful time of talking to each other and preparing to be home.
It's always wonderful to see a sign like this when we enter back into the U.S.!
The Mother/Daughter tea was such a special time.
You just never know what you might see motoring down the road. Sometimes you'll hear an exclamation: "Look at such and such at 10 o'clock." Years ago, when Nathan and Christopher were young, Dad taught them how to describe something they saw out the window. Instead of, "Look over THERE!" (As in, where IS there?!) to picturing your view out the window as a clock and describing what you see as a time. It works perfectly well!
Sometimes I think it's hard for people to picture how big the bus is. One afternoon, we decided to take some photos to demonstrate!
Very pretty scenery
Downtown Seattle at night (thanks, Christopher!).
More scenery.
We did a photo shoot with Joseph and John one afternoon in sunny California. They needed a new picture for their business card!
Christopher's our all around great-guy!
This is the blog post with interesting vehicles. Here are two more.
The mountains outside of L.A.
Dairy Queen, again! We got great mileage out of Uncle Rob & Aunt Tami's gift. Thanks again :-).
While we were in the W-M parking lot at Flagstaff, we noticed a man who appeared to be living out of his vehicle. He also had two large dogs in his car. Christopher brought him some tracts and food, for which the man was very grateful.
Setting up in Flagstaff.
What are the guys doing? Well, near the end of their set up, one of them had an idea. They decided to do a group pushup, and they each stacked some chairs up and did their pushups. Interesting. Creative.

Dad and Mom in Flagstaff.
Anna always has a cheerful smile.
A peek out a bus window.
I took a picture one night as we were going to bed.
Almost exactly 8 hours later, we were on the road again.
Mom loves light, so often in the morning, you could find her putting up the blinds!
Another scenery photo.
Our precious, fresh water, draining out overnight!

“And there ye shall eat before the Lord your God, and ye shall rejoice in all that ye put your hand unto, ye and your households, wherein the Lord thy God hath blessed thee” (Deuteronomy 12:7).

  1. Thank you for sharing these pictures! I especially enjoyed the one of Seattle at night – – wow!! ~ And the pictures of your family are all great too. ~ So sorry about the water loss, and hopefully that problem will be corrected so that won’t happen on future trips.
    Hugs from Georgia, Patti M. 🙂

  2. Golly……that’s crazy about the fresh water leaking! We are thankful for the Lord’s hand upon your family as you traveled, despite a few bumps along the way. Random question: does Uriah have a stove/oven for you to cook on?
    We don’t have an oven, and we don’t have a stove. Instead, we use a fry pan, crock pot, and we have a hot plate (can’t think of the exact title, but you can actually cook things on it) that plugs in and works just like a burner on a stove would. It has worked out well! Sarah

  3. Now all we need to know is how tall are the young men in the picture? Then we will have an even better idea of how big the bus is:).

    Thanks for the updates.
    Good question. Joseph is about 6 foot, John is about 6′ 1″ or 2″, and Jesse is about 5’10”. Sarah

  4. Wo! i love the Seattle pic! who took it and what time at night?
    Christopher took it, and it was early evening.

  5. I enjoyed seeing all the pictures… the one with the mountains and barn just above the Seattle night photo is literally right down the road from my parents… you made me homesick! 🙂
