#10 Weekend Woundup and Weview

I spent Thursday working on City Reach stuff and Kelly Jo and Odie were chauffeured around town by Sis. Carla Martinez for some retail therapy. It looks like they had fun!

Thursday evening the Martinez family treated us to a great Mexican meal and even better fellowship. We had a great evening with friends even though I was not feeling the best.

We love Pastor Martinez and his family AND all the Desert Cove folks but we needed to move on toward California. We planned to leave Friday morning but the allergies/cold/sickness that I had been running from since Sunday caught me with a vengeance Thursday night. I was up early Friday but I felt like mud. I finally decided to stay another day in El Mirage and do nothing but rest.

That is pretty much what I did all day long, absolutely nothing but rest. Kelly Jo and Odie went to hear Gordon Mote Friday night but I did nothing.

It turned out to be a smart decision because I felt much better by Saturday morning. We drove 355 miles Saturday and it was a beautiful drive. We never get tired of this scenery. We did have some heavy winds going through one area. Of course, we could see about 1000 wind mills so I guess wind is pretty normal there.

We did have a couple of hours of heavy traffic as we neared Los Angeles but we made it safely. We ended up in an RV Park right on the Anaheim and Orange line.

We jumped in the Green Machine a few minutes after arriving and went exploring. We are here to visit churches, meet people and find God given opportunities for a future City Reach. We drove about 100 miles Saturday around LA and then about 140 miles Sunday visiting two churches.

This is a glimpse of the city I am burdened for.

One of the churches we visited was outside of the LA central area near where we will be preaching next weekend. We have dear friends that know the Pastor and we wanted to get to know him. We enjoyed meeting Pastor Duke Downs and his folks in Chino Sunday night.

Today we plan to run up into central California for a few days and then we will be in Bloomington by Friday night by God's grace. Keep praying that we will walk softly before the Lord and be sensitive to His voice.

Thanks for reading.
