Our trip from California to Wisconsin was a mix of awe at God's provision, and also a practice in showing Christ-like love when long hours being cooped up brought on bouts of irrational negative emotions in the little guys (and also in their parents). Overall, it was a pretty great trip. We posted on Facebook as we went, taking pictures along our route, but for anyone that missed (or anyone who wants any further details, you nosy people, you), the following will take you on a fantastic voyage in... The Magic Van.
Before anyone cries, "sacrilage!!", let me be clear: "B.S." is "Bible Study", and this little notation is appearing over and over in my tiny pocket calendar. God is blessing our time in California way more than we expected (our bad, shoulda known better!). Only a week and a half here has our schedule brimming with meetings with pastors and missions boards, and opportunities to meet tons of people from all different churches!
