A GREAT weekend!!
We arrived in Fairmont at noon, checked into a motel and headed down to meet Katie McConnell at Fairmont United Methodist Church. Katie had a GREAT event planned - a family fun day at Sylvania park. We did a fun ride on our bikes around the beautiful town, there was a kid talent show, water balloons, food, music from a great band and a chance to share our story. We had a great time and enjoyed meeting the wonderful, friendly people. We were ready to crash last night!
Sunday morning we enjoyed worshipping with our new friends at Fairmont UMC, sharing a testimony and then being treated to a meal at The Ranch restaurant with the Brunch Bunch. Jim & Melinda...Katie is GREAT and yes, we did get to hug her!
This afternoon we have been enjoying a true Sabbath at the motel. We will be ready to head out in the morning with only about 12 miles left in Minnesota. We head south on Highway 15 once again. Please pray for tail winds!
Once again, thank you for your prayers!!!

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
