Sunday, a day of rest

We enjoyed sleeping in until about 7 am - LATE for us on this trip!  We worshipped at the 8:30 praise service at First United Methodist Church of Grenada, Mississippi and were warmly welcomed by pastor, Tom Potter and the congregation. It was a great service, message and time of fellowship. 
After returning to our motel, Russ did some maintenance on his bike.  A couple days ago he replaced the chain, today he changed out the wheel with the gear cluster.  After so many miles, they were showing some wear!  After lunch we'd intended to hit the pool, but took a nap first.  Today was hot and VERY humid.  We did get to the pool for a refreshing dip but thunder cut our swim short.  No raindrops ever fell, but it looked threatening for a time.
I enjoyed meeting Miranda and Anita, employees at the Quality Inn where we are staying.  Miranda said she passed us yesterday and saw me wave, so she waved back and wondered what we were doing in Grenada! While Russ was working on his bike in the parking lot, another worker at the motel came to him with a donation for our missions.  I am continually amazed at the generosity of God's people! 
It's been a great day of relaxation and refreshment.  God is GOOD!  We'll be rested and ready for tomorrow's journey.  Until then, blessings to you and thank you for your prayers!
Russ & Carol

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.
