March has been a very busy month of travel with over 10,000 miles driven, passing back and forth through seven times zones, and adding a time change in the middle. We traveled from the East Coast to the West Coast and ended the month in the Mid-West. We ran into snow several times, especially in Washington and Wyoming. Parts of Washington had snow piled up on the side of the road taller than me, and in Wyoming, we got stuck in standstill traffic for over two hours. We filled our tank 28 times with gas ranging from $3.46 to $4.89 per gallon, although we did see gas as high as $5.49 per gallon.
We were blessed to present our ministry to four missions conferences and one missions emphasis day. We stayed at six hotels, three mission houses/apartments, and once with a church family.
We shared the gospel with many individuals, but I want to highlight two. We drove fourteen hours after leaving Washington state and arrived three miles into Wyoming and found a hotel. Checking in, I met a young lady in her late twenties named Beth. She was in pain. She was walking about with a limp as if she had fallen recently. I asked her if she was okay, and she told me she had recently had several stressed-induced heart attacks but couldn't afford to take off work. We talked for a few minutes, and then I found an opening to share the gospel. I wish I could tell you she accepted Christ, but she comes from a very strong Mormon background. I gave her one of our tracks, and she promised to look into it. Please keep her in your prayers.
The other is our little girl, Elizabeth (aka Ellie)! Praise the Lord! We were in a missions house in Nebraska, and she was working on her school work when her video teacher (Abeka) started talking about salvation in Bible class. I noticed she was listening carefully, and others from the churches we visited said she had been asking questions. So I took the opportunity to ask her if she knew what that meant. I am excited to tell you that she accepted Christ as her Savior that day! Amen!
