Hi from Grants Pass, Oregon.
I had intended to send a message yesterday morning, but ended up behind on my schedule. I drove down yesterday for meetings this weekend. I had a great time this morning with some preschool kids. Tomorrow I will be part of a mission fair, then speak two times on Sunday at different churches and with a woman’s group on Tuesday morning. Then the rest of Tuesday, about 8 hours driving, will be going back to Richland.
Ok, funny Scott story time. I have a “history” of hitting animals. I don’t try to, but have two dear and one elk in my driving record. Well, yesterday on the way to Grants Pass I was watching carefully to avoid any animals. All was going great until I was a bit north of Cottage Grove when a turkey ran into the freeway. I had just passed an 18 wheeler and was moving back to the right lane. I saw the turkey run into the road so I hit the brakes pretty hard, but the truck was not that far behind me, so I also quickly tried to move to the left lane without loosing control. But the turkey kept coming and ran, thud, into the side of the car. I glanced in the rear-view-mirror and saw a small cloud of feathers before the truck hit the turkey and then lots more feathers. I got off the road to check the car and it was fine, praise the Lord. But feathers kept floating down the freeway. As you can see I really do need prayers on my behalf.
Please pray for Hannah as she has finals next week. Pray for Nathan as he is applying for a computer programming internship this summer. Lift up Denise as she has two big projects that she is working on due in the near future.
Yea, pray that I don’t run into more animals. But also pray that I will hear clearly, and share clearly, what the Lord wants during the next four meetings.
Thanks a million for your prayers.
