Yesterday was the longest day of driving in the world. We headed out of Rialto a little bit after 8:30 a.m. Our destination was El Paso, Texas, over 750 miles away from home. We arrived in Avondale, Az right around 12:45 p.m. and met up with Bro. Winkler for lunch. Flavors of Lousianna was incredible. You can't go wrong with a little gumbo and shrimp po'boy! We then got back on the road and continued on and on. It was smooth sailing with no traffic. I was loving the high speed limit through Arizona and New Mexico. Bro. George slept for a majority of the ride. Thankfully I had some assistance in staying awake. Finally, after 10 hrs or more of driving, we arrived into the ghetto of El Paso, Texas. Trust me, the idea I once had of sleeping in went out the window when we arrived. I could not wait for morning to come to continue the journey.

We left El Paso today and made our way to Ft. Stockton for church tonight. It seemed like a piece of cake considering it was only a 3.5 hr drive. We arrived at the hotel and got settled in. Bro. Johnson called and wanted to meet for lunch/dinner, but he had to wait until he figured out how he was going to kill a rattler on the ranch. We are for sure in Texas. We met up a hour later as he was successful in killing the 5 ft. 7 in. rattler. Ate some food and headed for church. It was some good ole' country church. Awesome facilities in the middle of West Texas. Bro. George taught about commitment and dedicating our lives to God. He challenged us to present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God. There was a sweet presence of God in the altar call. Bro. Johnson was neat person and has an incredible office with deer mounts, a huge longhorn, some buffalo and other...what could be better? Tomorrow we are heading to San Antonio to have some fun as we make our way to Lake Charles, La
