What an amazing trip. Thursday night, we stopped in North Platte, Nebraska for the night at a campground. We baptized Tyler Wright in the lake. It was a cool thing to see happen. Our kids clapped and angels rejoiced. We sat up late into the night around a fire talking, until the mosquitos showed up en masse. Then, the wind started to blow. From 1130-330 am the wind howled and howled. Nate, Tyler and I were outside, so at least there weren't mosquitos to fight with. Then the wind died and they were back. It was brutal!!
Woke up Friday morning, packed all of our stuff and then left for Longmont Colorado. We arrived around 1230 and went to the church to meet our host. Then, it was off to Group Publishing for a tour and some face time with the team behind our service project this week, Week of Hope. Back to Longmont, a few games of Twister, 5 Guys Burgers and Fries for dinner, and of course, a trip to Wal-Mart. More Twister, Phase 10, and then an early bedtime of 945pm.
Today, we are heading out to the Poudre River for rafting. As soon as I find a more robust internet connection, I'll get some photos up. In the meantime, just follow the Twitter feed for some photos.
