On day 4 we arrived, somewhat unceremoniously, at the home of our friends David and Becky Richeson. Plans were to drive to their home late Monday evening and to spend the night in our bus, but we only got as far as the bottom of their driveway where we got stuck. Tuesday morning David rescued us with his tractor. There are so many positives to being a farmer, one of them being that you have a tractor large enough to pull out a 40 foot bus. Thanks, David! Our day was spent relaxing with their family. David, Marlin, and Mitchell had some long conversations about cows while we ladies learned how to sew some creatively beautiful purses from Becky, a professional seamstress.

In the evening we shared a program with the church that the Richeson's attend. The highlight of this trip was to be able to encourage so many godly people to continue to follow God. Over and over again we met people whose hearts were bent on serving God.
