Micah’s friend Tim from Manitoba shared encouraging words.
Our family sang “#606”, Praise God.
Micah gave a short thank you speech. Followed by food!!!
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. Psalm 1: 1 & 2
Micah we love you and are thankful for your godly character and faithfulness! God bless you in the years ahead!
This post will cover a few more things that we did on our trip but don’t have many pictures from, for example, the main reason we went on this trip in the first place was to sing at a few places!
Hoover Dam and the bridge over it are quite a phenomenal site to see. Just to give you an idea of the size of the bridge (see below), the little dots you see along the upper edge are people!
The Ethel M Chocolate Factory was somewhat interesting but by the time we got there it was mostly clean up that we could watch…the taste tests were great though!
Joshua by the Joshua tree outside the chocolate factory.
We made a brief stop at San Clemente Beach on our way down the coast between L. A. and San Diego. The flowers are blooming, the palm trees are swaying in the wind and it is beach weather in February!! (At least to people that come from SK.)
It was a priviledge to sing at the Creation Museum on the outskirts of San Diego. This is where the creation movement to respond to the false view of evolution began in North America. As you can see from the posters below, they are still going strong and have many activities happening. Unfortunately, we have no other pictures from there but if you visit their website creationsd.sd.org you will find lots of pictures and information about a great place to visit to give you proof for the truth of what God said in the first part of Exodus 20:11, “For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is.”
On the way to Yuma, we did a tour of a carrot farm that was being harvested in the desert.
There are many RV resorts in Yuma! (and many Canadian snowbirds!!) This one that we sang at has a well attended morning service every Sunday in the winter months.
This may not be a very clear picture but this is the best we have from Organ Stop Pizza in Mesa, AZ. The big Wurlitzer Pipe Organ is connected to all sorts of instruments all around the walls above. The organist plays about 40 minutes of every hour the restaurant is open and then his organ dissappears, circling down into the floor during his breaks. You can make special requests and he played both of ours, “Amazing Grace” and “How Great Thou Art”. In “Amazing Grace”, he was able to imitate the sound of bagpipes perfectly even though that is one instrument he does not have up on the walls connected into the organ.
We have so many interesting memories from this trip and are thankful to God for the opportunities and the safety He provided.
