Back “Home”

In Uriah, that is! When we pulled up to the bus this morning, our hearts were full of gratefulness. There is truly no place like home, and I hadn’t realized how much Uriah felt like home until we were “on-the-road-away-from-him” for a week. Wow!

This morning, Joseph and John left the hotel at 6:45 to make it to the shop and unload the truck before we came. We left at 7:30, and as we neared Ocala, we found out that the shop was waiting on a final part (for those technically minded, it was the transmission fill tube) to arrive via UPS. Thus ensued an interesting time as we tried to flag down a UPS driver, who ended up not having the package, and then we found a UPS distribution center. Anyway, I’ll spare you the story. Good news? We ended up getting the package. Bad news? It was the wrong part. They sent the dipstick and not the fill tube. They were able to temporarily get the old fill tube to work (we will replace it once we get home), so a little after noon, we took the bus on a test drive. We were so grateful that it drove well. It now shifts so smooth we can hardly tell it is shifting.

We were excited to be on our way again! We are stopped at an RV park near Lake City, Florida. It was a short night last night, and we are looking forward to getting caught up on rest and being refreshed for the final conference in Savannah this weekend.


We did an unload "blitz"--long story, but we had to unload quickly.

BTW - those aren't Jesse's pillows.

Because we had to do a quick unload, the cabin was quite full initially.

We had a delicious dinner of chicken fajitas tonight.

“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)

    Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:20

  3. Great to hear that Uriah is back in action & that you haven’t missed any conferences! May it go well with your ‘last leg’ of this trip.

  4. You folks must be getting very tired. Praying you can get some good rest this week before your last conference.
    There are times, but the Lord allows us to refresh in time.

  5. So glad your back on your bus. We are planning to go to Savannah, Lord willing. My girls are so excited to meet you. Doen’t look like we will be able to make it until Sat.

  6. OOOO! Those fajitas look yummy! Definitely share the recipe when you have time!

    So glad to hear that you’re all back “home”, and enjoying your travels. Blessings as you spread the Word!

  7. Good – another prayer answered. Of course what a great testimony of His goodness from the false “tire alarm” to alert you, through the provision of a mechanic, to the parts coming in a little sooner than originally thought. Glad that it is running well.
