Stop #11: Chicago, Illinois

We pulled into the area early Friday afternoon. We decided to have family Bible time before we set up. It is such a cozy time as we read God’s Word together in the bus. After Bible time, we began the process of taking every thing into the church, which was an uneventful experience.

Our coordinators treated us to dinner, which was delicious! Thank you all so much. The Lord again brought families to the conference from several states and Canada (the Canadian couple had driven seven hours). They brought one of their children, and on the way, he asked, “When we get there, will I be a grownup?” He also asked twenty minutes down the road, “Are we to Chicago yet?”

Saturday we did a slightly different schedule than normal, and it went great. The families who came were delightful. Fellowship time passed quickly! Our panel discussion was packed with questions, of a wide variety, and interesting.

Then, that evening, one of the families from Michigan talked with us about going there to do a conference early in the week during one of our free evenings. It was exciting to see all the details come together, and with the Lord’s clear confirmation, we went. That report will be hopefully soon!

We are grateful for each city and the conference coordinator’s hearts for the event and those attending.

to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.”

  1. Hope and pray that you have a fruitful trip! I am a “transplanted Chicagoan” attempting to survive in the wilds of the Southeast. No, seriously, I hope that you will inspire families in my hometown to cherish that which is most important: God’s wonderful gifts. Would that I could be up there too, but I imagine our family from up there will be coming our way soon as grandchild number six is set to make an appearance at any moment.
    Thank you so much for your updates on your travels!
    Congratulations on number six. Praying for a healthy baby and good delivery.

  2. Thank you for this Chicago update—looks like it all went very well.
    The photos of all those precious children made me smile. 🙂 Continued prayers for traveling safety, and for receptive hearts as you all minister to others. Love, Mrs. Patti
