What a wonderful time we are having in Iron Mountain, Arkansas! After visiting and speaking in Louisiana we are now in Hatfield, Arkansas at Iron Mountain. Iron Mountain is the headquarters of CMA, Christian Motorcyclists Association. Yes, Mariesa and I are members of CMA – believe it or not. No, we don’t own a motorcycle but we sure are enjoying the fellowship of this wonderful evangelistic group. Our connection with CMA goes back almost 3 years. The first year we were in Peru we hosted a CMA team. They were great and through that group we have developed some great friendships and become members of CMA. Iron Mountain is where they have their annual Changing of the Colors. It’s amazing to fellowship with about 5,000 bikers who love the Lord and are on fire to share their love of Jesus with others.
We leave Arkansas tomorrow and travel to Joplin, Missouri. We’ll stay with Mariesa’s brother and visit friends there. Hopefully we’ll see the Glenns and thank them for sharing their son, Stephen, with us. He stayed with us in Peru and was a great help and an inspiring young man. We’ll also visit with a group of friends who came to the Marshall Islands to help us on a mission trip when we were serving there.
God is so good. Our trip to the CMA meeting was not on our schedule but God has an itinerary which is much better than ours. We are trying to be open to His guidance and flexible. We always tell teams who visit us that they must be flexible and now we are having to do what we preach. Thank you for all your prayers. You are making a difference. We are keeping you in our prayers even though our schedule is busy.
