The little homes in the valley nestled among the hills look so cute!

Things shift in the bus. As Anna has said, if you open a cupboard, be prepared to catch. Same rule goes for the fridge.

We are here, folks!

“Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power,
unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.”

  1. I notice the photo of food prep is when you are stopped for Diesel. Do you also cook while you are driving down the road? We have a motorhome (much smaller), and I am still trying to master the art of cooking while en-route. I find oven cooking to be much easier than stove-top cooking, especially if the roads are at all curvy. 🙂 We are still trying to find an inverter that actually has enough power to actually *cook* the food in our crockpot while we are traveling. (On smaller motorhomes, at least, there is no “regular” electric when en-route, just a 12 volt outlet). One other technical question: how do you find dump-stations? We bought a book that lists free dump-sites in every state, but we have found that it just isn’t as comprehensive as we had originally thought. Do you have a book that you use, or do you just keep notes of places you find to dump as you travel?

    There have been some times where a skillet is on the floor in front of a seated person, but most often it is a crockpot cooking in the sink. We usually dump at Flying J’s. They aren’t free, but dependable.

  2. Praise the Lord! So glad to read that you all have arrived safely. Continued prayers as you minister to others.
    Love, Mrs. Patti 🙂

  3. I love the beautiful pictures of the lush mountains and the cute home nestled in the hills. Thank you for sharing such lovely pictures.

  4. I am so pleased to hear that you have been safe on the roads, as that is always my prayer for you when you are travelling. Like Mrs Patti, I too will continue prayers for the whole family as they share God’s word with others.

    Blessings,

  5. It’s was such a pleasure to meet both Mary and Sarah last night. Such lovely young ladies. My daughter(Georgianna) was so pleased to meet Sarah. Thank you for taking the time to chat with us. Praise the LORD that the rain let up and your Saturday was beautiful. My other children were all lined up calling dibs on the new book.

  6. Thank you for visiting Connecticut; we never seem to attract such followers of Jesus! I could not make your event; but my Bible study teacher and her family were there! So, I heard all about your lecture, teen session and fellowshipping 🙂 Please come back soon!!!
