|Coffee gets all 6 of us started!|
Thirty minutes down the highway Saturday morning I discovered that I have my Smart Phone on the charger in my office! One more administrative device that would not be making the trip with me. I've learned that these latest generation of phones don't only make calls, but have the capacity to retrieve, read, and respond to emails, keep a calendar updated and revised, take photos and videos, and notify me of posts my friends make on Facebook. Without the phone and the laptop my focus really would be much better directed toward two major connections we would have with people ... first in Spokane and lastly in Newport.
The road trip not only included my best friend, Pam, but four teenage girls ... all of whom have been to Uganda. I soon discovered that they would provide a third unplanned people connection! Not only was our destination packed with people time, but both 8 hour journeys there and back were relationship intensive too. It was so refreshing/stretching to be engaged in a 90 minute conversation with three young ladies around the celebration of who they are in Christ and and the exploration of what He may have in mind for their lives next. You can get an impression of that discussion by reading My Uganda Days written by my oldest granddaughter (soon to be 19), Blair.

Our delightful time with these people was terminated when one of them noticed that it was snowing outside. Vicki encouraged us to hit the road since we were driving even further north, towards the Canadian border, and darkness was soon falling. Adventure seems to be a way of life for us and I love it.

Now it is back to administrative work for two days before Pam and I leave for another three day adventure ... this one in Tucson, Arizona. People and administration ... working together as our means to discover and display the glory of Jesus.
