We took a couple of morning breaks and at 9 am came to Uniontown on Hwy 61 where we saw a sign that said ROAD CLOSED ahead. Once again, God sent us help - a nice lady out getting her mail that told us they were building a new bridge down the road and a bicycle could get through, but not the car. She also explained how to detour and meet up with Russ down the road. What a blessing and Russ didn't have to waste miles detouring!
We had a lunch break at Wendy's in Cape Girardeau where we met Donna Hendrix who had been following us since Jackson. She gave us a generous donation and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. She also was instrumental in getting several people in the restaurant involved in our route out of the city, she even got her husband Gary on the phone to speak to Russ & give us tips and directions as well. Here's a picture of Donna with Russ outside of Wendy's.
We found a shady spot on the side of the road for a break at 2:00. At 96 degrees, we needed a shady spot!
Thanks again for all your prayers! God reveals Himself to us in people, places and circumstances and His word. Thank you for interceding on our behalf, we appreciate you!
Russ & Carol
