Day 17, another 100 miles
We were glad to find a motel and finally get out of our wet clothes. The cold pool felt refreshing, as well as a warm shower. Tonight I used the blow dryer to dry out our shoes. Russ changed the tire on one wheel in our motel room, set it aside and started changing the other. Gene was resting on his bed, I was laying on ours reading when POW! I thought the guys hanging around outside on the sidewalk were exchanging gunfire! But it was the 1st tire Russ had changed, it had blown off the wheel scaring ME to death! We really laughed!
Tonight we have thunder and rain again. Overcast skies would be good for tomorrow as well, the temperature stayed under 90 today with no wind in the morning. As we look at the map, the end of our trip is in sight. The only way we've made it so far is by the grace of God, with His guidance, power and strength and through the prayers and encouragement of SO many people! Keep on praying, we're getting closer!
Blessings to you - until tomorrow,
Russ & Carol
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The CrossNAmerica trip is First to be a witness of the significance of the Cross of Jesus Christ and Its Foundational Influence Upon This Nation. Its Even the Glue That Holds Us Together. "LAMININ"
Secondly we are raising pledges per mile or single pledges to support any of the five mission organizations listed on this blog or any other worthy Christian mission effort around the world, locally or globally.
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:18
