The Journey is the destination...

That sentence is kinda the essence of today's trip. When you go somewhere, you might as well enjoy the ride.
We left this morning at 8:00 a.m. on our way to the midwest... St. Joseph, IL is the first stop on our 2 week tour throughout the US.
Today we did something special: We got a chance to visit the family of one of our team-members: The Roethe Family. They live in a small town just outside Springfield, IL. We got there around 3:45 PM and were quite the attraction (stopping people that walk their dogs right in their tracks, scaring grandmas in PT Cruisers by blowing our horn, etc.)

Nathan's parents had prepared a wonderful dinner and we enjoyed the time with them. Thank you so much for your hospitality!
We also had a good time playing with the dog and taking pictures of all the different foods we ate.

After the much needed break we continued down the road and got to our destination around 7:45.
Everything is well, the Bus is in one piece and our bellies are full... Praise the Lord :-)

Please keep the rest of the team in your prayers as they fly out tomorrow (pray for good weather) and for a smooth setup.
If you live in the midwest, you might want to consider taking a day off to come out and see us:
