Week Two/ Sixth day of riding
We enjoyed beautful farmland in Iowa, lots of corn & soybeans and the aroma of pigs!! A guy in Minnesota told us it was the smell of money : ) At about 20 mph you can really enjoy the surroundings. At a break in Manson, we met Michelle Christensen who came out to see what in the world we were doing! After a nice visit, we were on our way again. God certainly has us meeting lots of nice and interesting people.
We had to drive to Perry to find a motel, then ate like ravenous wolves at the Mandarin Cafe in downtown Perry. We've had our showers and are in our P.J.'s and ready to crash!
Broers family, you will be a stop in our day tomorrow...we can HARDLY WAIT!!!
Until next time...keep on praying!
"May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back
The sunshine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand"
A few pictures from the day:
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
